A Cultural Gem in Trevisan Land
Nestled in the picturesque Trevisan land, Villa Sandi stands as a shining testament to the harmonious relationship between art and agriculture that has long defined the Venetian landscape. This magnificent Palladian-style mansion, dating back to 1622, holds a special place in the hearts of wine enthusiasts and history lovers alike.
Strategically situated between the esteemed DOCG area of Prosecco of Valdobbiadene and the DOC region of Montello and Colli Asolani wines, Villa Sandi enjoys a prime location for viticulture. The Moretti Polegato family, devoted to wine culture for generations, has embraced this rich tradition by transforming Villa Sandi into the hub of their winery operations while fostering modern grape cultivation in the area.
The roots of Villa Sandi trace back to the early 1920s when Mario Polegato, the grandfather of the current president Giancarlo, first ventured into the world of winemaking by acquiring vineyards. The business grew steadily with Mario’s dedication, and alongside his wife Amalia Moretti, they cultivated their father’s legacy. The family flourished as children Mario and Giancarlo were born, each developing a profound love for the world of wine. Mario pursued a career as an oenologist, while Giancarlo specialized in financial management. Together, their efforts fortified the company’s roots and propelled its growth.
Like a vineyard that matures over time, Villa Sandi embarked on an evolution of its own. Since the early 2000s, the vineyard platform expanded across the DOC and DOCG lands of Prosecco, incorporating a diverse array of indigenous grape varieties. In 2010, Villa Sandi achieved a significant milestone with Cartizze La Rivetta receiving the prestigious Tre Bicchieri del Gambero Rosso award, a recognition consistently earned for twelve consecutive years.
The cherished values and skills of the Moretti Polegato family continue to be passed down through the generations, breathing life into the history of Villa Sandi. Diva and Leonardo, Giancarlo and Augusta’s children, have joined the family business, renewing the tradition of a lineage that has cultivated the future of the region for four generations.
Villa Sandi remains an enduring symbol of the inseparable connection between art, agriculture, and the cultural heritage of the Trevisan land—a place where the past converges with the present to create
