The Estate

Tenuta Col Sandago is located in a luxuriant area where the vines benefit from soils rich in precious substances that were absorbed during prehistoric times, when an immense glacier from the Dolomites descended into the valley, shaping the land and excavating the bed of the historic Piave River.

A) Wildbacher

A grape variety with a long history.
Originally from Styria (Austria), two centuries ago it arrived in the March of Treviso, the only area of Italy that has welcomed and valued it. Today, Wildbacher sets Tenuta Col Sandago apart.

Particular attention is given to these vines that are trained using the spurred cordon system – careful leaf removal, precise pruning and thinning out the grape bunches results, of course, in lower production yields.

The grapes from these vines are used to produce a red wine of character, a fruity and floral sparkling rosé (Brut Rosé), an intriguing passito (Dagoberthus), and a high-quality grappa.

SPURRED CORDON
This vine training system is appropriate for dry soils and/or soils having medium fertility.
The trunk, which reaches a height of 60-70 cm, extends horizontally in a fixed cordon measuring approximately 90 cm long, which has spurs with 2-4 buds spaced at an even distance of 15-30 cm.
The layout or geometric arrangement of the vineyards is 2-2.5 m between rows and 1 m between plants.

B) Prosecco

Prosecco is the most important variety in terms of production at Case Bianche. The training method used is the espalier (Sylvoz) system.
The planting density of the Prosecco vines is approximately 3,000 per hectare, producing an average yield of 135 quintals per hectare.
The grapes from these vines are used to produce Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG, Brut “Vigna del Cuc” Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG and “Brusolé”, a fruity, lightly sparkling wine.
In addition to the classic Prosecco sparkling wine production, there is “Undici”, a brilliant and light Prosecco Superiore Dry enhanced with notes of Glera and Perera grapes.

SYLVOZ
This training method is widely used in central and northern Italy.
The Sylvoz system consists of a main vertical trunk that continues as a horizontal cordon from which emerge canes that are pruned long and bent downwards.
The canes are replaced from year to year using a shoot forming on the curve of the previous year’s cane or from a small spur.

C) Prosecco Costapiana

Prosecco is the most important variety in terms of production at Case Bianche. The training method used is the espalier (Sylvoz) system.
The planting density of the Prosecco vines is approximately 3,000 per hectare, producing an average yield of 135 quintals per hectare.
The grapes from these vines are used to produce Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG, Brut “Vigna del Cuc” Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG and “Brusolé”, a fruity, lightly sparkling wine.
In addition to the classic Prosecco sparkling wine production, there is “Undici”, a brilliant and light Prosecco Superiore Dry enhanced with notes of Glera and Perera grapes.

E) Merlot

The company also proudly produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, wines made from varieties that have adapted well to the estate’s unique characteristics.
The Guyot training system is used for the Merlot vines.

GUYOT
The simple Guyot training system has a reduced size.
The trunk of the 70-80 cm plant supports a cane with 6-10 buds, arranged horizontally in the direction of the row, and a spur with 1-2 buds that provides replacements for the following year.
The layout or geometric arrangement of the vines for a classic Guyot system is 1.2-2.0 m between rows and 60-70 cm between plants, depending on the vigour, the cultivar/rootstock combination and the fertility of the land.

F) Olive Trees

The estate’s lands are extremely productive.
Rich in calcareous clay, the land enjoys an ideal microclimate that results from a meeting of the Mediterranean and Alpine climates.
The chemical properties of the soil and the climate favour not only wine production, but also oil production (in limited quantities), thanks to the cultivation of olive trees planted here in 2006.
