From this landscape and culture Argiolas has risen to the top of Sardegnan winemaking. In the last eight vintages their top wine, Turriga, has won Italy’s most prestigious wine award from Gambero Rosso Editore, “Tre Bicchieri Award”. Their innovative range of wines is packed with character and appealing style. The family winery was started in 1938 and it sits on 220 hectares of prime rolling Sardinian vineyards near Serdiana. The annual production is under 100,000 cases and all grapes for the wines are grown on the estate’s vineyards. Over the years the Argiolas family has strongly insisted on its native Sardinian vines, focusing on the indigenous white varietals Nuragus and Vermentino and the red varietals Cannonau, Monica, Carignano and Bovale Sardo. Giacomo Tachis, father of prestigious Italian wines such as Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia, has been instrumental in placing Argiolas on the quality map. Like the Argiolas family, Tachis has a true passion for the island’s native varietals. In 2004 The Wine Advocate said Argiolas produces “essential wines for those looking to discover what the wines and viticulture of Sardinia are all about.”
