The Col Sandago winery was born in the municipality of Susegana, in the province of Treviso. The state-of-the-art facility, equipped with absolutely innovative equipment, allows us to achieve high quality standards in the production of sparkling, semi-sparkling and still wines. The careful care of the vineyards and of the different cultivation practices, such as pruning, thinning and selection of the bunches, take place in full respect of nature. Col Sandago lies in the prestigious province of Treviso, nestled amidst the stunning hills of the D.O.C.G. Conegliano Valdobbiadene region. The Glera variety which is grown here benefits from the chemical and physical peculiarities of the land. The exposure, the slopes, the altitudes, and the microclimates all contribute to the high quality of the product. The excellent wines produced in the Valdobbiadene-Conegliano area make it one of the most important sparkling wine producing districts in Italy and the world.
