Veneto, in Italy, is one of the ancient and culture-rich places you have to visit if you want the taste of authentic Italian wine. Sacchetto, based out of Veneto, was established during the start of the 19th century. Sisito Sacchetto set up this label after World War 1, and by the 1950s and 60s, his company started gaining immense popularity, thanks to Sisito’s technical knowledge about winemaking.
Today, Sisito’s son and his grandchildren, controlling the family’s beautiful wine estate, Prapian Estate, located right in the middle of the DOCG Valdobbiadene Prosecco region in Veneto. The Prosecco region is always known to be quite complex, when compared to other wine-growing regions in the world. It is a well-protected place, and the vineyards here unique, indeed! This is because the region is characterised by special microclimatic conditions, its proximity to the sea, the excellence of terroirs and the vicinity of the mountains.
The Prapian Estate, located in this region, stretches across 45 hectares in the DOCG Valdobbiadene regions and for about 20 hectares in the DOCG Asolo-Nevasa regions. The soil quality, which is a blend of the features from the Miocene and Ice Age periods, along with the microclimate, is perfect for growing glera grapes here. This is not just an estate where the wines are produced, but a reflection of the Sacchetto family’s attention to detail and precision while making wines.
§The winery is built in such a way that it reflects the true character of the fruits. It has been designed after hours of consultation with the expert winemaking team at Sacchetto and professional oenologists. While traditional practices are still followed here, you can also see a blend of creative technologies being introduced in the winemaking process.
Moscato, Pinot Grigio, Marzemino, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Nero and Sauvignon Blanc are some of the common varietals used for creating Sacchetto wines.
