Azienda Agricola Antonella Leda' d'Ittiri
The estate, located at the feet of Monte Doglia, is accessible from the road that connects the village of Santa Maria La Palma to Fertilia.
It covers 18 hectares, 10 of which are olive orchards, while 7 are vineyards. The agricultural region where the farm lies today, was created during the Fascist period when these area was drained and divided into little pieces of land destined to cultivation; each of them was provided with a farmhouse.
In 2003, the noblewoman Antonella Leda' d'Ittiri bought and joined two pieces of land together, taking up her residence in one of the two farmhouses of the estate.
The other house is currently our "Wine Resort", where visitors will have the chance to taste wines, extra-virgin olive oil and local typical products. The estate is situated within the Natural Park of Porto Conte, habitat of Mediterranean vegetation and of several species of wild fauna: wild boars, rabbits, hares, partridges, and fallow deers.
The olive orchard (of which, only a little part dates back to the period of the drainage) was planted approximately ten years ago, in conformity with modern growing techniques. Among the cultivars we can mention: Bosana, Carolea, Nocellara and Frantoio. The vineyard originates from the owners' idea of producing in Sardinia some types of wines similar to first-class Bordeaux red wines that they greatly appreciate. With this intent, they have planted Merlot and Cabernet grapevines. Later on, in order to set off the potentialities of the area, they have paid more attention to local productions such as Cannonau, Cagnulari and Vermentino.
The business philosophy consists in producing small quantities in favor of a higher quality and in offering a high-level hospitality to those visitors who appreciate the tranquility and the fragrance of the countryside.
