THE COMPANY

The Arvisionadu Winery was founded with the main objective of revitalizing this historic, indigenous Arvisionadu white berry variety, one of the rarest and oldest of Sardinian wines and, until a few years ago, almost to the point of extinction. The vineyard itself, transplanted in various stages since 2006, and nurtured using support backing and “guyot” pruning, has a plant density of 4,500 stems per hectare. It is fertilized in autumn with composted organic fertilizers. After blossoming , the excess shoots are removed and before the color changes the bunches are thinned. Grapes are harvested manually when the bunches reach perfect maturity: their scrupulous selection and low production per stem guarantee the superior quality of the grapes that are pressed softly to extract only the flower must with the most typical and characteristic scents of Sardinia.
Aging of barrique and flor vinification are being tested. Luigi Veronelli, celebrating at Benetutti 50 years ago with Arvisionadu, remains enchanted by it. A real oenological pearl for versatility and organoleptic characteristics

dell'Arvisionadu History

The first observations of this vine in Sardinia date back to the first publication on the subject, by the scholar Sassarese, Manca dell’Arca (1780), which, describing the cultivated varieties, calls it “Arvu siniadu, prolonged and rare grains”. Cettolini (1897) refers to it with the names Arvusiniagu and Arvusemidanu, while Cara in 1909 cites it with the name Alvu-signadu. The vine is then mentioned in the OIV (1996) and Galet (2000) lists. New data profiles are published by Deidda (1964) and Calò, Costacurta and Scienza (2001). Arvisionadu is also present in the national collections of INRA in Montpellier and the CRA of Conegliano Veneto, and in those of the Sardinia region managed by the University of Sassari and the AGRIS Regional Agency.
Arvisionadu, avresiniadu, alvu signadu, arvusiniagu: a name composed of arvu or alvu (white in Sardinian language) and signadu or sionadu (meaning “marked” in Sardinian) = marked white, albus signatus in latin, marked with a bow and white pebbleusing chalk, as the ancient Romans who roamed the area of Luzzanas and knew the wine, used to mark the good things, the fortunate days to remember
