Antonella Corda in the Press

Young winemaker Antonella Corda has been making waves at her eponymous property in Sardinia, Italy. This year alone, she has been awarded the coveted Tre Bicchieri, been named a Star of Southern Italy Wines by Decanter magazine, and received 94 points from James Suckling for her 2017 Cannonau (not bad for a wine that retails for less than $25). We can't wait to see what she brings us in 2020. Brava Antonella!

Antonella grew up among the vineyards in a family of winegrowers that stretches back over generations. Her mother gave her a love for the land and her father instilled in her a passion for the work of vinification. Antonella became an agronomist, graduating in Agricultural Sciences and Technology at the University of Sassari and founded her own winery in 2010. She took the reins in hand, transforming it into an ambitious and innovative project that honors its past. She has created a boutique winery capable of producing excellent Sardinian wines worthy of representing the region worldwide. A 40-hectare farm with 15 hectares of vineyard, 12 of olive trees, and the rest left open for crop rotation. Antonella Corda believes sustainable cultivation to be the best way for people to coexist with nature, so it can be passed down to the next generation intact. All of this means that organic fertilizers, integrated pest control actions, and sustainable irrigation systems are utilized in the vineyards.
