Biomar winery is synonymous with Sardinia and, more precisely, with Carignano del Sulcis red wine. Biomar winery is located on the island of Sant’Antioco, in the extreme south-west of the beautiful and wild Sardinia. An island of the island that until the eighties was literally covered with vineyards of Carignano cultivated with saplings and that grew up to the beaches, among the dunes and junipers, on sandy soils and ridges whipped all year by strong mistral winds. Vines have always been kept clear, because this is one of the few areas in Europe where the terrible plague of phylloxera has not destroyed human work.
This type of low-yield cultivation clashed with the quantitative market logic of the 1980s, which gradually drive this traditional cultivation technique to decline. Some vineyards resisted market changes and thanks to old local farmers, the island's traditional growing method continued. This is what happened to Biomar when grandfather Massimino and his father Gianni inherited the vineyards, now in the hands of Massimo and Tessa who became spokesmen for the recovery of the land and the ancient cultivations of Carignano. A small winery, therefore, family-run, which with the help of the young and talented winemaker Antonio Manca produces two wines both representative of the DOC Carignano del Sulcis, - one of the most important in the whole of Sardinia. "Il Doc" and "Il Bio", two Sardinian red wines with great personality and closely linked to the territory and traditions of an ancient native island vine.
