The Serdiana estate, framed by an enchanting landscape dotted with important historical remains, covers an area of about 20 ha in the Sibiola countryside, in the Municipality of Serdiana. It is cultivated with the principal traditional grape varieties. A further 45 hectares of vineyards are cultivated in the Parteolla area, on hilly land at an elevation of about 300-350 m above sea level. The estate also comprises olive groves with about 5000 plants of the Tonda di Cagliari and Pitz'e Carroga varieties.
The Sisini estate covers an area of some 60 hectares on the hills of the municipality of Siurgus. Its soils derive from Miocenic sandstone marls, with associated colluvial deposits, at an altitude between 250 and 300 m a.s.l. Thanks to soil composition, mild climate and good exposure, these vineyards yield excellent grapes for use as the main components of the Argiolas white wines. Other grapes include Vermentino, which was brought in from northern Sardinia and planted with great foresight by Antonio Argiolas.

Situated at a height between 200 and 350 m a.s.l.,it has a propitious micro-climate with intense bouts of rainfall atwell-distributed intervals during the year, but above all with optimumtemperature excursions that help develop and maintain the substancesimparting colour and aroma to the grapes. Apart from the traditionalvarieties (Cannonau, Monica, Bovale Sardo and Carignano, Vermentino,Malvasia Bianca), this estate also hosts the company's largestexperimental vineyard.

The excellent altitude varying between 190 and 220 a.s.l. and the soil's characteristics have always marked this territory as the perfect place for the production of outstanding wines.
The Porto Pino estate stretches for about 15 hectares along the coastal strip flanking the Gulf of Palmas, at a distance between 200 and 700 m from the sea. It enjoys a particularly favourable micro-climate thanks to the mitigating action of the winds and the considerable temperature excursions between day and night, which enable ideal development of phenolic substances and make it the perfect place for growing Carignano Moreover, the sandstone-rich soils trap night-time humidity, thus providing natural protection against drought and offering the spectacle of lush vineyards with especially rich bunches of grapes.
