To Juliet’s question “What’s in a name?” the Sartori family would answer “Everything!” For over a century, Sartori, has stood for traditional values elevated by innovation, a dedication to quality and a boundless passion for quality winemaking. The family took its first step in 1898, when Pietro Sartori bought Villa Maria, a vineyard with a small cellar attached, in the heart of the Veneto region’s Valpolicella district, to assure a source of high quality wine for his hotel. A few years later, Pietro’s son, Regolo, built the winery into the family’s core business, and by the 1950s Regolo’s two sons expanded the winery and brought these wines to international recognition. Today, Andrea Sartori, Pietro’s great-grandson, is at the helm. Like his forefathers, he has taken steps to broaden the reputation of Sartori di Verona and to guarantee the quality behind it. Since 2003 Sartori hired the renowned Franco Bernabei as consulting winemaker.
