Salvetta is a Historic Winery, Immersed in Charming Landscapes
Surrounded by the extending cliffs of the Dolomites, Azienda Agricola Salvetta is a family-owned farm located in the beautiful village of Madruzzo – Sarche in Trentino. The mesmerizing three vineyard plots are situated north of the Sarca River. Grapes enjoy a sub-mediterranean microclimate, together with specific soil composition that results in top-quality wines. The winery became organic in 2012, and since then, they are producing delicious white wines under Vino Santo Trentino DOC status.
Nearly a Century Old Family Winemaking Traditions
In 1930, Dario Salvetta bought Giacomo Sommadossi vineyard and started growing grapes. Later his sons, Renato, Umberto, Franco, and Giancarlo, worked in the winery with the same passion as their father until 2003. The winery stopped working for some years, and later, one of the Salvetta brothers, Giancarlo, reignited the spark and turned Azienda Agricola Salvetta into an organic wine estate. He adopted local winemaking practices, carried out in Trentino for centuries, and exported wines in various parts of Australia and Europe.
Vines Bounded by Sarca River & Mount Casale
On the ancient terroirs, the Salvetta Winery mainly focuses on the cultivation of one grape variety, Nosiola. Since 2012, Giancarlo has successfully grown biodynamic grapes, enriched with distinct aromas and perfumes – vines that express the essence of the soil in which they are grown. The winery team has committed itself to 100% organic practices – manual harvesting, manual pressing, and aging in wooden oak barrels – to produce rich-quality white wines.
