Veneto wine has ancient origins, dating back to the 2nd millennium B.C. , but it’s after the Roman conquest that the wine production in Veneto took off. Today Veneto is one of the Italian regions producing more wine, but alongside so much quantity it’s mostly known the quality, with fine wines such as Amarone, Recioto, Soave and Prosecco.
Azienda Agricola Villa Angarano is located in the eastern part of the Breganze DOC area in the Municipality of Bassano del Grappa, and currently occupies fifty hectares, 8 of which are dedicated to vineyards that extend to the right bank of the River Brenta.The alluvial soil and the nightly breeze blowing down the Valsugana Valley are beneficial to both the grapevines and the olive groves.
Thanks to these generous climatic conditions, these Veneto lands were first chosen for cultivation and never since abandoned, and wine has always been produced here. The farm with its vineyards, olive groves and fields flourished throughout the 1800s. The Villa luckily passed unscathed the First World War, fought hard in the Monte Grappa area, and was preserved unchanged until the middle of 1900. In the 60s of the 1900s a new road was marked through the county of Quare and the transformation of the urban planning and landscape began to the present day.
The five sisters manage the Villa with passion in great harmony with their respective families and are extremely committed to preserve the Villa in its original splendor.
The new wines represent the fruit of an extended effort by Villa Angarano Vineyards to renew and improve the quality of its products.
After almost seven-hundred years of production using traditional methods, nowadays the Villa is owned by five sisters Carla, Giovanna, Anna, Maruzza and Isabella Bianchi Michiel, who are well aware of the great historical heritage acquired from their ancestors, with their love for the harvest and wine and the consultation of oenologist, Marco Bernabei, have dedicated their effort to the 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.
