Cantina Sacchetto was founded in 1920 and today is run by Filiberto Sacchetto, alongside his son Paolo and daughter Beatrice. Together they oversee all aspects of the winemaking process, with attention, passion and great flexibility. Through innovation and investment in modern vinification techniques, they produce stunning still and sparkling wines for which the Veneto region has become famous.
2017 saw a cold winter with abundant rainfall. In the spring there were pockets of frost which delayed budburst in some vineyards. Warm, sunny weather over the summer period helped to restore the normal growth of the vines and the grapes were harvested in a healthy condition with good varietal characteristics.
The vineyard is made up of chalky soils, which provide good drainage for the vines, as the vine roots can easily penetrate this soft soil.
The grapes were destemmed and pressed. Fermentation of the must took place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeasts. The wine was kept in tank until bottling.
A fresh, fruity and dry Pinot Grigio with aromas of apple and exotic fruits, a luscious texture and a moreish hint of bitter lemon on the finish.
This delicious and versatile wine pairs well with light seafood dishes, salads and fresh fruit salads.
