The name Dolianova in Sardinia has always been synonymous with the production of quality wines. The establishment of Cantine di Dolianova in 1949 aimed to continue and elevate this tradition. In those early years, when Sardinia was still in its developmental stages and significantly different from today, a collective of winemakers formed a cooperative effort to enhance the value and personal investment in their labor, leveraging their collective strength.
For 70 years, the Cantine’s values have been passed down through generations, including a deep love for the land, a passion for the vineyards, and a commitment to constant improvement to produce wines of exceptional quality. Today, they continue to diligently work towards delivering the highest standard using the finest Sardinian grape varieties.
The Cantine di Dolianova looks forward to the future with strength and a profound understanding gained from 70 years of history. Their wisdom is rooted in a winemaking tradition that spans 3,000 years, adding to their readiness for what lies ahead.
