Contini 1898

Written by Piero Pardini


The Contini winery has grown like the wines and successes that have made it great, through the passion and commitment of four generations.

For almost 120 years a single common thread, represented by Vernaccia di Oristano, has characterized the work of the Contini company. Then, over the years, Vernaccia has been joined by other important productions: the historic Nieddera vine, the traditional Vermentino and Cannonau, successful experiments such as Karmis, Attilio and organic Mamaioa.

Today, the company produces a full range of wines with which it is present in Italy and abroad. It does not stop evolving, both in winemaking techniques and in ideas.
