The artisanal, family-owned winery Pusole is located on the eastern shore of central Sardinia, in the Ogliastra region which offers a varied terrain, going from the beautiful seaside to mountains of over 1100 metres. Here, for four generations, the Pusole family has cultivated its land, producing wine, corn and olive oil, in addition to breeding a local species of semi-wild pigs called “razza sarda”. Today the family business is run by siblings Loredana, Lorenzo and Roberto. In the cellar Pusole follows a production philosophy which aims at preserving the true character of the wines, shaped by the soil and the vintage. Only indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation, and temperatures are controlled exclusively by airing the must. After hand harvesting, the wine undergoes non-temperature controlled natural fermentation and remains unfiltered.
