WINERY

Vigneti Zanatta is a young company founded in 2003 with the combination of two pieces of land, one in Sardinia and another in Veneto. These regions are well-known for their tradition on the production of wine.

It was in the Gallura area that in 1975 Bruno Zanatta, a young enologist from Treviso, started out on his career, acquiring in-depth knowledge of the terrain and of Sardinian soil.

In the course of thirty years of his passion for wine, Bruno Zanatta found, together with his son and daughter, what can be considered a true family-run enterprise.

In 2003, the Zanatta family bought, what would be the starting point of a fruitful winery, 20 acres in a hilly area in Sardinia, about 300 metres above sea level. There, two varieties of vines were planted, Vermentino and Cannonau.

A few years later, in 2005, the Zanatta decided to expand their plantation by investing in a 100-acres sea level terrain, located in the center of the Gallura area (Northern Sardinia). Patience, dedication, and love throughout the years transformed this piece of land into fertile ground to produce their Vermentino di Gallura DOCG and Cannonau di Sardegna DOC.

Bruno’s dream became reality when, in 2008, the construction of the winery was completed. Daily commitment in conjunction with years of experience and professionalism are only a couple of features of this tenacious family-owned business. Vigneti Zanatta proves that the union of two allegedly distant lands can result in a winemaking tradition of excellence.

Sardinia and Veneto, two lands steeped in tradition and culture, combined what they have to offer resulting in a unique winery called Vigneti Zanatta.
