Trexenta Winery is a historic winery in Sardinia was founded by 23 winemakers in the village of Senorbì in the mid-1950s.
As early as the 1970s, wines from Trexenta Winery, particularly Nuragus and Monica, were being exported to France and Germany.
In the 1980s, thanks to the vineyards of Vermentino and Cannonau and, more recently, of Chardonnay, Montepulciano and Carignano, the production diversification of Cantina Trexenta began.
Today the Trexenta Winery has a vineyard area of more than 200 hectares and is managed with great professionalism that has been handed down for generations.
Our vineyards testify to our winemakers' love for the land and their passion for the culture of the vine in the Trexenta region.
In the territory of Trexenta, vines have presented since prehistoric times thanks to the spontaneity of Vitis Vinifera. Vines grown today arrived in Sardinia as early as the Phoenician period (9th - 8th centuries B.C.) and during Carthaginian (6th century B.C.) and Roman (3rd century B.C.) rule.
Then, over the years, people from different areas of the Mediterranean introduced many varieties and wisely exploited the characteristics of the climate and soil.
Today, the vineyards extend into the agricultural area of Trexenta, an inland region of southern Sardinia, 40-50 km from Cagliari, with about 200 hectares of vineyards.
Our vineyards are expertly and intelligently managed by our winemakers on a continuous program to achieve high quality standards.
Trexenta consists of hills at 400 meters above sea level. Typical Miocene sedimentary layers composed of limestone, marl, sandstone and volcanic material are widely distributed.
The result is a calcium carbonate-rich soil with a fairly fine texture from the marl and a coarser texture from the sandstone. In this area we find Xerorthents, fairly deep, fertile, fine-textured soils derived from limestone, and Xerochrepts, calcium carbonate-rich, deep, clayey soils.
The climate here is characterized by hot, sunny summers and mild winters with relatively abundant water compared to the rest of Sardinia, which is usually very dry. The average annual temperature is about 16-17 °C.
The minimum in January is between 5-5.5 °C. The nature and climate of the soil enable the spread of vines in the region and the production of quality wines.
Trexenta Winery wines are loved in many countries around the world such as: France, Spain, England, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Holland, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, the United States, Japan, Canada and China.
