NATURE AND INNOVATIONOrganic soul

Lughente is the first Organic Vermentino di Gallura DOCG.

Our organic journey started from Giogantinu’s passion and the trust of those winemakers who allowed their vineyards to turn into Lughente. They look after each row without using chemicals, fully respecting the land and the people.

A refined light that marks the heartbeat of a land that is both fragrant and fruitful.
