Responsible for putting Verdicchio on the world stage
A fully family-run operation, Sartarelli is one of the few Italian wineries which focuses exclusively on a single varietal production, in this case Verdicchio.
At the time the winery was started by Feruccio Sartarelli, Verdicchio was considered a mass-produced table wine, and they are responsible for putting Verdicchio on the world stage in 1999, when when their late-harvest Balciana 1997 was awarded both the White Wine Trophy and Italian White Wine Trophy at the International Wine Challenge. In 2020 the same wine once again earned Sartarelli the trophy for the best Italian White Wine at the International Wine Challenge.
The winery and offices are built around the family’s century-old country house at 350 meters above sea level, and its extension of 55 hectares of vineyards and 6 hectares of olive groves with 2 300 trees, is situated in Poggio San Marcello, a small precious gem surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of the Marche region, and where Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico is produced.
Respect and care are two values on which Sartarelli’s philosophy is based and they have always run the vineyards in total respect of the environment, firmly believing that it helps produce a superior wine.
