    Puddu winery history

    Our history

    A family, a land, a challenge

    A dream
    come true

    An agricultural company, even more if it is family-run, has intrinsically fallen into a social and environmental context, in a specific territory and permeated by a specific local culture. The products of the earth feed on ingredients that cannot be reproduced elsewhere in the same way. For these reasons, the company is the family’s priority, the center of gravity of their life. Family work is an inseparable alchemy of “gifts” and “exchanges” with one’s land.
    Since 1976, the year in which our father’s adventure and dream began, which, step by step, has come to the present day

    Many things have changed since the beginnings, but the passion and the spirit that keep us deeply rooted to our land.

    Our winery has become modern and functional , a place where tradition merges with technology. Our vineyards have grown over the years to reach 30 hectares and we have expanded the business investing into olive sector, planting 15 hectares of olive trees of the local varieties Nera di Oliena and Bosana .
    In our vineyards Cannonau rules over the other varieties, finding in the area of Oliena a perfect terroir that allows these grapes to flourish like nowhere else in Sardinia to the point that this spot has been classified as a subzone of DOC Cannonau di Sardegna, named Nepente di Oliena.
