AN ANCIENT STORY:
THE VILLA ANGARANO VINEYARDS
The antique Villa Angarano is an historical vinery farm based in Northeastern Italy owned by 5 sisters. It’s extending over fifty hectares cultivated mainly with vineyards and olive trees. The alluvial origin of the soil and the night breeze coming, give a particular benefit to the vineyard and the olives. Thanks to its microclimate these Venetian lands have always been appreciated. Andrea Palladio described Villa Angarano in one of his books of architecture as “This place is renowned for its precious wines and fruits…”.
Thanks to these generous climatic conditions, these Veneto lands were first chosen for cultivation and never since abandoned, and wine – in the words of Palladio – has always been produced here.
After almost seven-hundred years of production using traditional methods, today the five Bianchi Michiel sisters with their love for the harvest and wine and the consultation of oenologist, Marco Bernabei, have dedicated their effort to a new production.
The challenge has just begun: following careful research for the species most suited to the territory capable of enhancing the bouquet that these ancient lands can offer, in 2003, the farm first began replanting the vineyards with Merlot, Cabernet, and then Chardonnay and Vespaiolo grape.
These new wines represent the fruit of an extended effort by Villa Angarano Vineyards to renew and improve the quality of its products.
