Founded in 1898 by Salvatore Contini, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in Sardinia. The winery is located in Cabras, in the western part of Sardinia. The town is beautifully situated on the shores of the lake of the same name, surrounded by many historical and cultural buildings. The Vernaccia di Oristano has always been the trademark of Azienda Contini and this wine won the gold medal at the International Wine Fair in Milan in 1912 and 1913. Today, the founder's grandchildren and great-grandchildren, with the same dedication and perfection, dedicate themselves to the demands of a growing and increasingly demanding market. Since 1980 the range has been constantly expanded and today includes dry white, rosato and red wines, mainly obtained from the Cannonau and Nieddera grape varieties (the oldest and rarest variety in Sardinia).
