ITALY’S LEADING PROSECCO ESTATE
Villa Sandi is a majestic 1622 Palladian-style villa representing the confluence of art and architecture that has manifested itself in the Venetian landscape for many centuries. Today, the villa is the headquarters to Tenuta Villa Sandi owned by Giancarlo Moretti Polegato and family. Rooted in tradition, the family has contributed in setting the pace for Prosecco's reputation as a wine and production area while keeping extremely high quality with regard and respect for the environment with their strong commitments to sustainability.
Benefiting from land suitable for growing both white and red varietals, Villa Sandi grows Glera grapes from each of the five Prosecco designations producing wines from the everyday approachability of DOC Treviso to Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG to Cartizze DOCG, a cru made in the heart of the most prestigious Valdobbiadene area. Parts of the estate suitable for red grapes produce a small volume of Pinot Nero used to blend in Il Fresco Rosé. Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie DOC is sourced from vineyards in two regions: the Veneto which evoke freshness and pleasant acidity, and Friuli contributing body, fruit flavors and aromatic richness giving this wine an exceptional well-rounded and classic profile. Villa Sandi Prosecco and Pinot Grigio are complementary as aperitifs or with a wide range of cuisines positioning the brand very favorably among restaurants and wine bars.
Villa Sandi employs a unique “on-demand” production technique that ensures their Prosecco is always fresh and lively. After harvest, not all of the juice is fermented immediately. Villa Sandi stores some of the unfermented juice at 32°F. When more wine is needed, the temperature of the must is brought to 59-61°F and yeast cultures added, then fermented and bottled. This process allows Villa Sandi to deliver the freshest wines possible, emphasizing the fresh floral and fruity notes that Prosecco is known for.
