The Jankara estate was founded in 2006 when Renato and Angela Spanu first purchased 21 acres of untouched hillside land in the prestigious vein of San Leonardo within the highlands of Gallura. In 2008, The Spanus planted 11 of the original 21 acres with the Vermentino grape.
The Estate is located between the towns of Luras and Sant’Antonio di Gallura near Lake Liscia, at about 300 meters above sea level and about 25 minutes from the prestigious Costa Smeralda beaches. A deep passion for Sardinia and particularly Gallura, the homeland of Renato, brought them to pursue this fantastic dream of realizing a world class wine and promoting the beauty and richness of the Gallura granite mountains and soils to the world. Jankara is a true expression of the Spanus love of wine and the amazing ancient land called Gallura!
