About us


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

the Goceano territory, the territory furthest from the sea, in the heart of Sardinia, where you will find the most genuine and characteristic of flavors and scents. The area, always inhabited thanks to the the mildness of the climate, its abundant waters and the fertility of the soil, reveals testaments of historical and archaeological interest. We remember the famous “ipogeo prenuragico di Luzzanas” dating about 6,000 years ago, with a maze carved in its walls, one of the oldest rock carvings recorded. Present in the small farm is a nuraghe with a small source of water used for drinking as well inside the perimeter wall. The area in question was regularly frequented by the ancient Romans thanks to the presence of the thermal springs of Aquae Lesitanae, the current sulfur springs of S. Saturnino, as Claudio Tolomeo who lived in the second century evidences in his book. It is also cited in the Itinerarium Provinciarum, compiled under the emperor “Caracalla” (211-217 AD) in the stretch of road running from Olbia to Caralis passing through the interior of the island. During the preparation of the land for planting of the first vineyard in the 1950s archaeological finds and Roman coins donated to the Archaeological Museum of Cagliari were discovered. Moreover in the Goceano territory, the Romanesque-Pisan church of San Saturnino and the castle of Burgos are not to be forgotten.

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
