Pojer e Sandri


Pojer & Sandri is a company dates to 1975, when young Fiorentino Sandri inherited a parcel of vineyards at the alpine village of Faedo and with his winemaker friend Mario Pojer who had just received his diploma from the San Michele Agricultural Institute formed a partnership which has been very, pardon the pun, “fruitful” and is now in its fourth decade. Their goal in this untested viticultural area between the Adige river and Cembra Valley was simple, but ambitious: to prove that with care and skill, they could, contrary to popularly-held beliefs, demonstrate the Faedo area (and environs) was capable of producing world-class wines. Their first release was an exquisitely-scented 1975 vintage Palai Müller-Thurgau, followed by the indigenous Trentino “Nosiola” white wine along with a highly-acclaimed Chardonnay. The wines caused quite a stir in the Italian wine renaissance of the 1970s and the company grew and vineyard expansion began. Six new vineyard sites were purchased in our hometown of Faedo and nearby San Michele along with parcels in the Cembra Valley. As of the 2010 vintage, Pojer & Sandri can be conisdered an "estate bottled" winery. We currently farm all the vineyards used to source fruit for our broad range of Trentino-area wines. Most of the vineyards are owned by Pojer & Sandri, with a small percentage being under long-term contract, but farmed by us.We have reached a major goal in doing so, as we continue to follow our philosophy of "quality," starting from the ground up. We have great respect for nature, the seasons, the terroir and the tradition of wise, old farmers.
