Santadi Winery

Winery of Santadi came into being in 1960, when a group of grape growers has joined forces to set up a winemaking cooperative.

They have been coordinated by ETFAS (an institution that dealt with the problem of agricultural transformation in Sardinia).

The place was – and is – Santadi, south-western Sardinia, in the heart of the Sulcis district.

Up to the 1980s, the Winery confined its activity to the production and selling of bulk wine, apart from a few timid attempts at bottling.

An act of faith was needed, and this came in the mid-1970s when a new Board of Directors took office, headed by Antonello Pilloni (today still chairman).

The new team realized that a change of course was necessary, so they made sure to secure to the winery the collaboration of Giacomo Tachis, internationally renowned oenologist; who soon fell in love with this land and took the future of the winery into the heart.

Under his guidance, the quality of the Santadi wines skyrocketed, securing them a breakthrough in the main markets, which immediately recognized their outstanding quality and strong identity.

Since then, the only direction has been upwards, as the Santadi wines continue to spread and reap appreciation worldwide. A success story made possible by the whole team, which includes the grape growers, directors, marketing staff and all winery workers, forming a reservoir of expertise that is an asset for the whole territory.
