Eighty years of “actual” history, but more than two centuries of business activity in the Veneto: Santa Margherita was founded in 1935 by Count Gaetano Marzotto Jr. who, at the time, was running the family’s Vicenza-based textile group, which was started up at the beginning of the 19th century by his grandfather, Luigi. His aim was a very specific one: to succeed in creating an innovative agricultural hub that would break the traditional mould of the time and represent a source of modernity and growth. This vision was perfectly in line with the spirit of Count Gaetano Jr.: a real tycoon who was extremely able in reconciling company objectives with social needs. Indeed, around the Santa Margherita estate – just as at Valdagno around the Marzotto headquarters – he created the first residential quarters for his employees, as well as cultural and recreational facilities. This sensitivity was real and not merely a façade, and he persisted with it through the difficult times of the Second World War and the immediate postwar years. He was an entrepreneurial figure who played a prominent role in Italian financial matters: he had an uncommon knack for interpreting the trends of the world economy (it was also he who came up with the idea of hotel chains, thus giving a helping hand to Italy’s burgeoning tourist industry). He made important decisions that affected the public good, but he also encouraged more widespread development, earning the nickname of “the humanist businessman”. Count Gaetano Jr. had eight children and today his grandson (who bears his name and is the son of his eldest son, Vittorio Emanuele) is in charge of Santa Margherit.For his “revolutionary” estate, Gaetano Marzotto Jr. chose a vast property of over a thousand hectares lying between Fossalta and Portogruaro: a tract of land that the Stucky family had put up for sale, after having completely reclaimed it and made it suitable for agriculture. Where before there had been marshland, one could now admire well-ordered fields. Gaetano Marzotto carried out further improvements on the property: he completely modified the cultivation techniques, unified the estate and abolished sharecropping, introducing new crops and improving the living conditions of the farm workers. These were, for the time, epoch-making changes, and other companies would follow his example in the decades that were to follow. Read less

Smells slightly herbal, yeasty and grassy on the nose, with notes of dried lime zest and small, dusty baked apple fruits. A bit sweet but fairly bright in the mouth, with the sugar adding flavors more than weight. The fruit shows a touch of peach in addition to some spice and apple notes. Very creamy and soft in the mouth, with lovely freshness of fruit on the finish. The sugar pokes out a bit on the finish but is balanced by acids and a touch of mineral bitterness.  87pts

The color of subtle yellow tinted glass, this Prosecco has good mousse with a soft, near-neutral flavor upon entry. This is followed by subtle flecks of cotton candy and grape phosphate with just enough astringency to clarify those confection-like overtones. It is quite dry for the typical fare one sees in St. Mark's Square in mid-summer but good value and quality notwithstanding.

Refreshing and crispy, good acidity and toast with medium bubbles and a creamy finish.

This prosecco has been given good reviews, and rightfully so. Bubbly being underrated, I jumped at the opportunity to drink it. I think a special occasion like a Wednesday night is perfect for a prosecco. As soon as I popped the cork, I could smell the typical fruits and pears expected from a brut. The front palate was light, with flavors of spring greens and fruits. The mid-palate had hints of mandarin oranges, which matured into green apples. The most pleasing part of this wine was the finish - it had nice minerality with a bit of crisp slate. At $14,99, it was definitely a great buy.

Sparkling wine with a clean nose, pleasantly fruity, with whiffs of rennet apples and peach blossoms. Delicate, balanced taste.

Hereandrsquo;s a Prosecco with a surprisingly rich, toasted quality that translates into roasted almond, walnut and yellow fruit flavors. The toasted notes add unexpected complexity to a dry, crisp apandeacute;ritif wine.

The texture of this wine deftly balances the richness of ripe stone fruit with the grip of fruit skins, like apple and apricot. A hint of white pepper adds subtle complexity, while the finish feels fresh and elegant. Try it with toasted almonds. Wine & Spirits. A Proprietary Blend wine from Veneto in Italy. N.V.

Santa Margherita of Pinot Grigio fame brings us this tight expression of Prosecco with easy aromas of peach and citrus and a playful touch of sweetness on the close. This is a perfect wine to drink with friends on a lazy summer afternoon.
