Cantina di Calasetta

In 1770, some Tabarchini families began to populate the northern part of the island of Sant'Antioco, near a small bay called Cala di Seta, which later gave its name to the emerging town of Calasetta. The rugged and rocky nature of the soil, water scarcity, and high summer temperatures forced the settlers to abandon cereal crops and turn to viticulture. Since then, winemaking has been an integral part of the Calasetta region.

In 1905, the first attempt was made to establish the Cantina Sociale di Calasetta. It was the first example of cooperation in Sardinia but unfortunately was not successful. In the early 1930s, Calasetta boasted an impressive 1,070 hectares of vineyards, and the farmers realized that only by joining forces could they further boost the country's economy. On October 23, 1932, they joined together to form the current cooperative, Cantina di Calasetta.

A portion of our grapes is cultivated on the typical sandy soils of the island of Sant'Antioco. The high concentration of sand allows us to cultivate "piede franco" vines, meaning with their original roots, without the use of American rootstocks. This guarantees us a unique flavor profile of the grapes and creates ideal conditions for excellent production, even in advanced age of the vines. In the neighboring Basso Sulcis area, the vineyards are cultivated on calcareous clay soils, located close to the sea and constantly exposed to sea breezes.
