Tenuta Sant’Anna and its 5 Proseccos

A specialist in Prosecco

is the historical heart of Genagricola (Montcalm's Italian mother company) and the best known and most prolonged standing of the groups' brands. It hosts the headquarters, and it is one of the largest vineyard-wineries in the east of the Veneto region.

Founded in the early '60s, Tenuta Sant'Anna was one of the first viticultural properties acquired by Genagricola and ever since the 1970's it has been stretching the limits of innovation. Equipped with the latest technology, professional competence, and know-how, the winery stole the limelight with the distinctive quality of its wines, becoming one of the most prominent protagonists of the Italian wine-making scene. Some 50 km east of Venice, the estate covers 150 hectares, 140 of which are dedicated to vine growing. It straddles the border between the province of Treviso and the Friuli region.

Tenuta Sant'Anna main strength is, of course, its Prosecco, made in the traditional Charmat method, well recognized for its elegance and pleasantness, now available in both Extra Dry and Brut versions as well as a fun 'Frizzante' screwcap bottle.
