Santa Colomba is a very recent project, inaugurated under the current management in 2016, but with very clear ideas. Architects of this new chapter of a story that began in the distant tenth century are Marco Dani And Gianfranco Mistrorigo , the company's agronomist and oenologist respectively, with whom Franco Giacosa also collaborates. On the hill of Villa San Fermo in Lonigo, the western offshoot of the Berici Hills, today 8 and a half hectares of vineyards grow, above all Garganega – the local grape variety – but also Istrian Malvasia e cultivars Bordeaux. Marco and Gianfranco immediately choose the organic path (the certification obviously enters into force from 2019), with the intention of bringing to life and supporting the botanical variety of a hill where, next to the historic villa, stands a splendid English park full of trees and numerous plant species.

The approach in the vinification phase is fully consistent with the viticulture one: the spontaneous fermentations are entrusted to a pied de cuve from indigenous yeasts, the refinements take place on the fine lees, without any forced clarification, but limited to a coarse filtration before going into the bottle, if necessary. The management of the sulphites is prudent and commensurate with the real needs of the individual wines. The end result is surprisingly fine and elegant.
