The Cantina del Vermentino is now a point of reference for Sardinian and Italian wine production, especially for the production of Vermentino di Gallura. The historic winery founded in 1956, today has 250 members for an area of 500 hectares distributed among the municipalities of Monti, Telti, Olbia and Loiri Porto San Paolo. The unique terroir of its kind thanks to the sandy granite soils, rich in potassium combined with the high temperature ranges and the sea breeze from the Costa Smeralda guarantee wines of marked sapidity and complexity. These characteristics are enhanced by the skilful hand of the oenologist Alberto Raccanelli who, also thanks to the most modern technologies in the Cellar, creates, year after year, excellent, fine and elegant wines that bring prestige to the territory they represent.
