The Staff and some Members
Unique wines, as unique as our land
The La Giara Winery was founded, at the foot of the plateau of the same name, back in 1958 from the initiative of some Alta Marmilla winemakers who were motivated by the idea of enhancing the region and giving greater importance to the work carried out between the rows of their vineyards.
With passion and commitment we are proud, as proud now as we were over sixty years ago, to carry on and complete the work undertaken with so much effort and dedication by our father and grandfathers.
Since its foundation, the winery has been an important and constant reference point for the Marmilla winemakers. It has always stood out for the small quantities of wine produced, the careful selection of the vineyards and the cultivated vines and the constant attention aimed at enhancing the winemaking tradition to guarantee the authenticity of the wines produced.
The opening up to new markets, both national and foreign, offers us the opportunity to make people aware of the traditional uniqueness of our ancient territory which meets the rest of the world through our wines.
The areas in which the Members cultivate their vineyards are composed of different varieties and typical characteristics of the land: from the fresh sands of Arcidano to the marly and hilly soils typical of Marmilla, from the granite and fossil decay on the shores of Monte Arci to the basaltic ridges of the Plateau of the Giara. In this varied location you can admire our vineyards.
Generally not irrigated, and many of them now of historical importance as in some cases they have been around for over eighty years, the vines are often trained as saplings on an ungrafted vine, resulting in a production of grapes with low yields but with unique and rare characteristics.
Our wines are a living and true expression of the region
