To turn a dream into reality there must be the passion to do so and the entrepreneurial capacity to bring it to life.
The Su'entu Winery is the result of Salvatore Pilloni's dream, the dream of putting into production the rolling hills that every day attracted his attention and stimulated his imagination. Ancient lands with a wealth of history and traditions, ideal for grape growing. Today that dream is Su'entu and gives its name to all our wines.
We chose to identify our wines only through the name of the company. This is because we want to emphasize the close bond to our land and underscore that all our wines come exclusively from our vineyards.
The wines we proudly bottle are the result of teamwork. A team composed of farmers, workers, the wine-making expert and all those who work in our wine cellar. Many people, but all with a single objective: the production of high-quality wines destined to conquer the palate and heart of those who love good wine.
In our bottles you will find not only excellent wines, but also something more profound: a dream come true, the hard work and passion of all those who every day put their hearts and souls into the growth of the Su'entu Winery.
Our winery is just a few kilometres from the town of Sanluri with a very ancient agricultural tradition. The very name derives from the words logu de lori, the place of wheat: an evident homage to the fertility of the land that produced it, in the past and present, an ideal place for all kinds of crops.
Geographically, Sanluri is part of the Marmilla region, an ancient land dotted with prehistoric settlements, an economic and strategic point of reference for centuries and as such well defended as can be seen in the many remains of fortresses built to defend towns, plateaus and hills.
Here, in the slow passing of time, Prenuragic, Nuragic, Punic and Roman peoples alternated and superimposed themselves one on the other. Then in the Middle Ages came the people of Arborea with their coat of arms bearing a tree with its roots exposed and the Aragonese with the yellow and red of the Catalan banners. And then came the Piemontese, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and up to today.
Every population has left signs of its presence, sometimes hidden among the ears of wheat on farmland and sometimes standing out like the nuragic fortresses of Barumini and Mogoro or the medieval castles of Las Plassas and Sanluri.
A place where history has never stopped to rest. A land that is hilly but with slopes so gentle as to suggest to the ancient inhabitants a mother's breast, and this is the origin of the Marmilla place name. Still today, on walking through our vineyards we can breathe the tranquillity and joy of long-ago memories that link us to our infancy.
Today, the gentle slopes of these hills play host to our vineyards. From our work and enthusiasm come to light the wines that the Su'entu Winery produces for you.
