We’ve been making wine for three generations.

Where our story begins

We are fortunate to have been born in a place unique for its history, traditions, and culture.

Oliena, land of vineyards, olive groves, and honey. So wrote Gabriele D’Annunzio after his visit in the late 1800s with Edoardo Scarfoglio and Cesare Pascarella.

Oliena - Cantina Iolei

The village

Oliena, a jewel nestled among the “Sardinian Dolomites,” is a village that embraces the culinary tradition with a soul rich in authentic flavors. The unique terroir of this land ensures that the combination of climate, soil, and tradition gives birth to wines that tell ancient stories.

In the heart of Oliena, the culinary tradition is expressed through the cultivation of vineyards and olive groves that characterize the surrounding landscape. The vineyards, bathed in the warm Sardinian sun and caressed by the Mediterranean breeze, impart a unique character to the grapes that is reflected in the winemaking.

The village, guardian of ancient recipes passed down from generation to generation, offers an authentic gastronomic experience. The tables of Oliena are adorned with traditional dishes that celebrate the genuineness of local ingredients, from extra virgin olive oil to prized meats, creating a perfect marriage with the wines produced in the area.

Wines and Territory

Like Old Times

All our wines tell the story of the territory. We make simple wines. 80% of our production is vinified in steel to preserve the characteristics of the grape variety. We like to let the varietal express itself with minimal technological intervention.
