Mussennore Winery was founded in 2015 by a family united by roots firmly rooted in a territory it loves, that of Mamoiada.
Our history of Mussennore Winery began in 1976 with grandfather Gesuino, who planted the Palagorrai vineyard and produced 100 percent Cannonau.
Since then, viticulture has turned into a passion that has been passed down from generation to generation.
As mentioned, Mussennore Winery was founded in 2015 with a clear mission: to tell the story of the family, tradition and connection to the land by traveling down novel paths through viticulture that respects and honors a region renowned for producing high-quality grapes and wines.
In 2021 the winery's first bottlings: Mussennore 2019 and Mussennore Rosé 2020.
Mussennore: the meaning of the name
Mussennore, which means "Monsignore" in Italian, is the nickname that has distinguished our family in Mamoiada for more than four generations.
Even in the past, our grandparents were winemakers who produced and sold wine from their own vineyards.
We chose this name and the image of our grandfather Anthony for our logo to emphasize the meaning of our values and traditions.
On the back of the bottle is a quote that has become our mantra: "Forgetting one's ancestors implies being a rootless tree."
Our Cannonau wines are inspired by family values, cooperation and tradition.
Ghirada Palagorrai and Ghirada Conzimu vineyards.
In Sardinian Mamoiadino "Ghirarda" means "plot of land" and is synonymous with French "cru." We include it specifically in our label to indicate and guarantee the exact origin of the grapes from which we make our wines.
Currently, only grapes from the Palagorrai family vineyard in the countryside of Mamoiada, planted in 1976 with only Cannonau grapes, are used to produce Mussennore.
It is 620 meters above sea level and has a sandy land area of about 1.5 hectares.
In addition, we are building Ghirada Conzimu, a new vineyard that will be located next to Palagorrai and has been in our family since the 1940s.
Mamoiada: the territory
Every wine has a story that is intertwined with the land where it is grown and the people who produce it.
In Mamoiada, wine has a high social, cultural and environmental value because it respects nature and traditions.
Therefore, in recent years, Mamoiada's Cannonau has become much more than a wine: it is a symbol that represents us and with which we identify.
That's why, let's make Mamoja, an organization that brings together more than 20 wineries and hundreds of winemakers to work toward the same goal: to create the Mamoiada brand to make Mamoiada Cannonau a distinctive symbol of our country.
