It was 2000, the dawn of the new millennium. For us, the dawn of a new wine project. In Gergei, in the heart of Sarcidano (60 km north of Cagliari), the meeting between Stefano Casadei, Artemio Olianas and Simone Mugnaini gives life to Olianas, our Company.
What unites us is sharing a philosophy of producing quality wines based on respecting the environment, nature and the people who live there.
Since then, this philosophy has concretely developed into a new concept of agriculture, where environmental protection is a required procedure to ensure prosperity in the future.
Today in Olianas we produce not only organic, but bio-integrated wines: related to the history of this land, result of research, great dedication, expert hands; local vine varieties on 16 hectares of both red and white vineyards.
It is the result of an ongoing commitment to our ecosystem, to be passed on intact to our children.
Entrepreneur in the wine sector in Tuscany, he has a long experience for key manufacturers on an international level. He likes to describe himself as "a technician borrowed to entrepreneurship", thus claiming the most meaningful aspect of his work: providing companies and their clients with specific and entrepreneurial know-how.
After attending several courses in Enology and Viticulture at the University of Bordeaux, he gained good experience in analytical control and quality of the wine, and in the definition of the best combinations of microclimates, soils and vine varieties thanks to long professional experiences abroad.
Half Sardinian and half Tuscan, after spending his childhood in Gergei he moves to Florence where he successfully starts a business in the food industry.
The first 12 acres of the estate - subsequently extended for our wine project - belong to his family of origin since 1919.
Professional in the food industry, he is a business partner of Artemio Olianas, with whom he shares every professional adventure.
Starting from here.
