The story of Antonella Corda winery is deeply connected to that of its eponymous founder. She grew up among the vineyards in a family of winegrowers that stretches back over generations. Her mother gave her a love for the land and her father instilled in her a passion for the work of vinification. Antonella became an agronomist, graduating in Agricultural Sciences and Technology at the University of Sassari and founded her own winery in 2010 with vineyards she inherited from her grandfather, Antonio Argiolas. She took the reins in hand, creating an ambitious and innovative project that honors its past. She has created a boutique winery capable of producing excellent Sardinian wines worthy of representing Sardinia around the world.

 

The area of Serdiana, nestled in the southern part of the island on Sardinia, has a long agricultural tradition that is immediately evident today from its olive groves, vineyards, and fields of grain. Antonella Corda’s vineyards stand in these enchanting surroundings, taking the best from the land and bringing all the quality they offer to the final product. Of all the crops raised here, the grape is the one that finds its greatest expression: the characteristics of the soil, the presence of water, and the mild climate all contribute to giving the wine a unique character that can’t be replicated elsewhere.

 

A 40-hectare farm with 15 hectares of vineyard, 12 of olive trees, and the rest left open for crop rotation. Antonella Corda believes sustainable cultivation to be the best way for people to coexist with nature, so it can be passed down to the next generation intact. All of this means that organic fertilizers, integrated pest control actions, and sustainable irrigation systems are utilized in the vineyards.

 

The two vineyards that Antonella cultivates are Mitza Manna and Mitsa S’ollastu. Inherited from her father, Antonio Argiolas, Mitza Manna extends for six hectares at an altitude of 200 meters. It is cultivated with Vermentino and Nuraga white grapes. The soil is composed of sand, clay, and loam and a significant presence of calcium enhances the wine’s natural freshness and aromatic intensity. The Mitza S’ollastu is located on the Ussana town border and is planted to Vermentino and Cannonau. The soil is composed of sand, clay, loam and small pebbles.

"When wine is in your blood it’s difficult to ignore its pulse – at least for Antonella Corda, granddaughter of Antonio Argiolas (late patriarch of Argiolas). After studying agronomy and winemaking management, Corda took over her mother’s 40ha property and established her own label. Working with renowned consultant Luca d’Attoma she crafts two Vermentinos (one aged in amphora), a mouthcleansing Nuragus and a juicy Cannonau." (Decanter, Stars of Southern Italy Wines)
