TERRITORY OF ORIGIN:
The cultivation of vines was introduced in Sardinia when the Phoenicians settled on the island and founded their colonies in the fertile southern areas, between the 8th and 7th centuries BC. Even today, in the Sulcis area, in Campidano and in Gallura, the The names of some Sardinian villages, of Phoenician origin, recall the vine and its fruit.
The Romans found modern viticulture on the island, which was developed, but the trade stimulated by agriculture and viticulture slowed down significantly with the collapse of the Roman Empire. The wine sector remained anonymous for centuries, until the subsequent dominations of the Byzantines and the Arabs. From the end of the fifteenth century Sardinia became a Spanish province, which had negative consequences for agriculture. The only positive data is the introduction of Iberian vines (including Cannonau).
With the Savoy domination the fortunes of viticulture improved. Since 1949, having obtained administrative independence, many social wineries have arisen, starting the path of quality for Sardinian wine.
By extension, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean; its territory is 80% mountainous and hilly (of which 68% is made up of hills and rocky plateaus). Some characteristic soils are called giare or gollei, if granitic or basaltic, others, instead, heels or tonneri, if sandstone or limestone.
The climate is Mediterranean. The average altitude is 334 meters above sea level, although the highest massif on the island, the Gennargentu, reaches 1834 metres, while other lower massifs are found in Gallura, Sarrabus and Iglesiente-Arburese.
The region has 1 DOCG (Vermentino di Gallura) and 17 DOC.
The main native white grape varieties: Malvasia Bianca, Malvasia di Sardegna, Nasco, Nuragus, Semidano, Torbato, Vermentino, Vernaccia di Oristano, Semidano, Arvisionadu; red grapes: Bovale, Caddiu, Cagnulari, Cannonau, Carignano, Girò, Monica, Nieddera, Pascale, Barbera sarda, Nieddera, Girò.
The company is young, located in one of the historic areas of Sardinia: Gallura.
Davitha was born in 2014 with the idea of enhancing local viticulture by focusing on the rediscovery of the area's native vines and producing innovative wines, while remaining in the wake of the local winemaking tradition. In 3 hectares of vineyards in Tempio Pausania, in north-eastern Sardinia, at the foot of the granite massif of Mount Limbara which from its 1300 meters above sea level dominates Gallura of which Tempio is the historical capital.
The winery produces 6 labels: wines that are an authentic and unfiltered expression of their land.
Agriculture is natural , without compromise, sustainable and has the least impact possible on the environment. Davitha believes in biodynamics as the agriculture of the future: all agricultural practices on the farm follow its dictates.
The vineyards surround the town, multivarietal micro plots characterized by the presence of different vines, including Caricagiola and Pascale Moscato , but also Vermentino , Barbera Sarda and various types of Bovale to which are added other varieties also present in small parts which contribute to the particularity of the Davitha vineyard.
A vineyard between the sea and the mountains with characteristics yet to be discovered which produces wines dominated by freshness and low alcohol content.
For Davitha, working the vineyards biodynamically means supporting nature and its rhythms by interacting only when necessary: a vision of the world before an efficient and functional agricultural practice.
