Santa Margherita represents the starting point of the Santa Margherita Wine Group, founded by Count Gaetano Marzotto in 1935, which gradually developed into a real “wine making mosaic” with its own wineries and vineyards in some of Italy's most beautiful regions: Eastern Veneto, the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene hills, Alto Adige, Lombardy with Franciacorta an Lugana, Tuscany with Chianti Classico and Maremma, Sicily and Sardinia.

Indissolubly linked to its icon wine – Pinot Grigio, ancestor of an entire generation of new Italian white wines, market leader for more than fifty years, distributed in 90 countries – Santa Margherita made its ability to innovate, its managerial structure, its technological development, its quality and sustainability – environmental and social – its distinctive traits. There are actually two constants at the centre of our daily routine: the vineyard and men. The Villanova winery – the true "heart“ of a “new city” created out of nothing in a modern system of corporate welfare – has been at the centre of an important reinterpretation operation in recent years and is today completely energy self-sufficient.
