Located on Sant’Antioco island, Cantine Sardus Pater was established in 1949 as a winemaking cooperative. Today the winery draws in grapes from 300 hectares of vineyards, tended by 200 growers. The vineyards are planted in a series of gently undulating sand dunes, so sandy in fact that the vineyards remain un-grafted, escaping the perils of phylloxera. Up until 1994 the winery was exclusively focused on the production of Carignano. The name of the winery comes from the mythological hero of Nuragic Sardinians, Sardus Pater ("Sardinian Father"). All of the labels depict portraits of archeological relics found during the research and dig campaigns carried out on Sant’Antioco.
