About Villa Sandi
Italy’s Leading Prosecco Estate
Located in the heart of the Prosecco area at the foot of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG
hills, sits Villa Sandi and its exquisite Palladian-style villa. Dating back to 1622, the villa
represents the combination of art and agriculture which has characterized the Venetian
landscape for centuries. Owned by the Moretti Polegato family, the Villa is home to
and headquarters of Villa Sandi Winery where for generations the ancient tradition of
winemaking has been handed down from father to son.
Benefiting from land suitable for growing both white and red varietals, Villa Sandi
produces and offers wines for every occasion – from the everyday approachability of the
Prosecco DOC to the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG to the special Cartizze,
a cru made in the heart of the most prestigious Valdobbiadene Prosecco area.
By using a unique “on-demand” production technique, Villa Sandi ensures their Prosecco
is always fresh and lively. As opposed to immediately fermenting and bottling, Villa Sandi
refrigerates the Prosecco must upon crushing, keeping it at 32°F until it is needed. Upon
request, the must is brought to 59-61°F and the yeast cultures are added, then fermented
and bottled. This “on-demand” process guarantees that every bottle of Villa Sandi
Prosecco maintains the features of freshness, floral and fruity notes, typical of Prosecco.
