Santi Winery

Santi traces its origins to 1843, when Carlo Santi established a wine cellar in the village of Illasi situated behind the Lessini Mountains, between the hills of Colognola and Lavagno.

The original winery is situated in the heart of the most acclaimed wine growing zones in the Veneto near Lake Garda. Devoted to the production of Soave Classico, Pinot Grigio, Valpolicella and Amarone, Santi is an Italian winemaking success story. Santi wines are mainly crafted from estate fruit, or from long-standing relationships under the supervision of the Santi winemaking team.

From the flagship Pinot Grigio "Sortesele" and crisp Soave "Vigneti di Monteforte" and Rosè "Infinito", to Valpolicella Classico "Solane" and the classic Amarone, all of Santi's wines show a well-balanced, polished international style.
