We have included a little bit of light information below.
A sparkling jewel protected by the hills of the Marca Trevigiana, Villa Sandi is a Palladian style masterpiece dating back to 1622, and it is also the main office of the company. The Villa rises from a fertile countryside in which fields and farms, nowadays as well as in the past, pay homage to the local history. A vibrant stage in which nature and architecture live in total harmony together; place of delight and headquarters, the complex of Villa Sandi is an enchanting estate where man and environment are in perfect symbiosis.The entrance is an elegant alley sided by statues of the popular Venetian sculptor Orazio Marinali, whose works decorate also the gable and the backyard. A massive pronaos, sustained by four Ionian columns, adorn the main part of the building, on each side of which two elegant Barchesse and a small chapel stand.The Villa, cultural heritage of the Trevisan land, is situated between the D.O.C.G. area of the Prosecco of Valdobbiadene and the D.O.C. area of the Montello and Piave wines.
Devoted to wine culture for many generations, the Moretti Polegato family, owner of the Villa, have fostered this ancient tradition by making Villa Sandi the headquarters of the winery, and by promoting grape growing in the area on a modern basis. Giancarlo Moretti Polegato, who is very fond and knowledgeable of the wine world, is very proud to carry on the family tradition.
