We all know and love Champagne, how could you not, but would you believe that it is not, in fact, the world’s most popular sparkling wine? That place of honor is reserved for Prosecco, a sparkling wine from the Veneto region in Italy. In 2018, Prosecco surpassed Champagne as the most widely sold sparkling wine by volume in the entire world. And for good reason! Prosecco comes in a range of different styles, and at a much more attractive price point than most Champagnes, and is perfect for everything from mimosas at brunch to special occasion toasts to sipping outdoors with friends.
As a representative of Prosecco’s versatility and quality, the Villa Sandi winery stands out in particular. Overlooked by the 17th-century palazzo, Villa Sandi, the estate produces a range of Proseccos from various appellations, but each with an eye to producing the finest expressions of the region. As the largest private producer of Prosecco, the company sets a standard for other winemakers and vineyards in the region.
The Moretti Polegato family, owners of Villa Sandi, are committed to biodiversity-friendly viticulture practices, and maintaining a natural harmony within their vineyards and their wines, which shows in the purity and freshness of their cuvées. The use of green energy is very important at Villa Sandi, helping to reduce their carbon footprint on the planet and leave the estate in perfect condition for future generations. In fact, 40% of the energy required to run the vineyards and winery comes from solar panels and a hydroelectric power plant, located on the estate.
