The workshop of ideas
Quartomoro di Sardegna was initially used by Piero Cella himself to experiment and test different ideas to learn more about his own wines. This led him naturally to develop it into what it is today, a kind of ‘workshop of ideas’ where new wines are created.
It is a quintessential selection chosen to represent the true culture of wine in Sardinia.
Ideas and Emotions
Our emotional bond with the wines and the territory and our memories of long walks through vineyards together with great wine-tasting experiences has led us finally to realise our dream: Quartomoro di Sardegna. It was a real challenge for us, but we are really proud to have created this evolving winery.
Quartomoro di Sardegna embodies an intertwining of grapes, experiences and cultures exactly like its birthplace: Arborea, a living sinergy between being sardinian and continental influences. Our mission is to produce wines that best represent one of the most interesting territories in terms of biodiversity: Sardinia. We respect what nature has given us and protect it with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar with the winemaking.
The laboratory of ideas
“I always remember when I was a child, the September scents, the harvest time in the Arborea winery: a mixture of the aromas of grapes, must and grapes skins. It wasn’t a great time because my father was almost always absent. The winepresses, the grape grinders, the tanks and the barrels are now part of my lifelong memory. Someone said to me that it was my destiny to work in the wine industry”.
Today in Arborea, Luciana and myself, we try to valorise and enhance the native grape varieties of Sardinia by creating great wines with minimal intervention in the vineyard and in the winery by respecting the natural winemaking process. For us, when a wine for some reason doesn’t follow our plan, it is always a great defeat and a real loss. Our goal is always to make a harmonic symphony from the grapes and to put that into our bottles, at the same time with the real essence of our island.” [Piero Cella]
