The Mandrolisai cooperative winery was founded in 1952 and took its name from the region in which it operates. One on the most inland of Sardinia and one of the most renowned traditional wine-producing areas. The wine- growing vocation of the region stems from its ideal geographic characteristics. Lands on high hills, perfect sun exposure, long summers, and little rain ripen grapes to perfection even in the coolest years, making for excellent wines. The traditional quality and uniqueness of the wines of the region have earned Mandrolisai wines the title of V.Q.P.R.D.

The village records show that there are three times as many people over one hundred years old living in Sorgono than in western Europe. A group of researchers from the Queen Mary University of London give some credit for this record to the high Polyphenol content of the area's red wines (a phenol known to help prevent heart disease). The famous red called Kent'annos (hundred years) was called so because of it's 'fountain of youth' properties.
