Tenute Delogu is a winery nestled in the heart of the Nurra, a few miles from Alghero and Fertilia, which consists of 25 hectares (62 acres) of Guyot vineyards.
Their story began, however, in the picturesque Palmavera area, in a stretch of land seen by the locals as a magical place, capable of yielding incredible produce; it was from these vineyards that the company’s first wines – Ego, Geo and Die – originated.
People, Land and Time are at the heart of the production philosophy of the company’s founder Piero Delogu, who inherited his passion for wine from his family and won the renowned Tre Bicchieri del Gambero Rosso award for his Vermentino Die in 2018.
The winery currently produces 8 red and white wines, using regional grape varieties (Cannonau, Vermentino, Cagnulari) and other varieties (Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet). The wines produced are in the medium-to-high quality range, with prices that reflect the work and commitment behind the production. The company’s aim is to convey the history of the Sardinian wine-making tradition to the consumer, but also to broaden its vision by experimenting with new techniques. The winery produces between 80,000 and 100,000 bottles a year.
The product’s value lies, above all, in the raw material: a grape grown in calcareous sandy clay soil that gives the wines intense and brilliant colors, good structure and strong, persistent aromas and flavors. Although still a young company, it has invested in cutting-edge equipment and built a barrel cellar and bottling line to enable the entire production cycle, from grape production to bottling, to be carried out in-house.
