San Martino Vineyards

The beautiful backdrop of the lake makes it a popular spot for visitors to stop by and enjoy a picnic on the grounds. Don’t forget to try one of their wines. For 10 USD per person, you can come and try five pre-selected wines at one of the San Martino’s wine tastings. The winery hosts their tastings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 1:00 to 8:30 pm, and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:30 pm. The welcoming staff will answer all of your wine questions. Starting in August 2017, you will be able to attend one of their elevated wine tastings, which features their wine with specific food pairings. These events will require visitors to pre-register. In addition to their tastings, San Martino also hosts a variety of adults only events, including live music.
We are proud to manage the entire production chain that leads to the creation of our wines, from the vineyard to bottling. Immediately after harvesting, which is still mainly carried out manually, the grapes are taken to our winery. Soft and delicate pressing of the bunches of grapes preserves the aromas and guarantees high quality of the must. We take care of every detail of the winemaking process with intense passion and oenological expertise. Respect for tradition combined with modern processing technologies to enhance the characteristics of the grapes. We invest continuously in technological innovation in order to provide our winery with cutting-edge technology that improves the quality and authenticity of the wines. Thanks to the new plant, the bottles remain isolated in a closed and sterile environment until they are capped, without any external interventions during the entire process. The air-wine contact is eliminated throughout the entire production line, thereby better preserving the characteristics of the product and reducing the use of sulphur dioxide for conservation.
We try to make the most of the precious grapes that harvesting provides us with, this is the result of attention to every detail of the winemaking process. We carry out continuous organoleptic and quality checks in our analyses laboratory to guarantee the pleasure of drinking an excellent wine. We have cultivated grapes for generations in our family. Our grandparents were farmers and have handed down their genuine passion for the farmland, the attention in care for the vineyards, and respect for nature, the land and seasons. This history of our family has been intertwined for generations with that of wine and the land. We grow our vineyards directly, respecting traditions and nature, and aware that good wine comes from good grapes. To make our wines, we use grapes that are grown directly on our lands that run between the river Piave and the Unesco Heritage hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The winemaking fermentation process is carried out in our winery where we meticulously prepare the sparkling wines, as well as white and red still wines. Our characteristic trait is the great attention to the techniques involved in the sparkling wine production process and processing of the wines, capable of bringing out the best of the fine grapes just harvested.
