La Cantina delle nostre Ville Venete

 

Luciano Benetton founded Società Agricola Villa Minelli in 2007 from the will of producing its own wine from the vineyards located in the area of three Venetian Villas placed in Ponzano and Villorba, two villages in the Treviso province (in the North-East of Italy). In 2012 Società Agricola Villa Minelli set the ground for this new project, after a testing period of a few years in which the local vine varieties and the "different terroirs" had been tasted. The wines obtained thanks to this project are fresh, young, easy to drink and, more importantly, they come from the local area of Treviso. The soul of the project is perfectly embodied by Mr Francesco Serafini,
who represents in a deep and precise way the Treviso region features in the enology world.
The hard and passionate work of the men who have implemented this project has given birth to three wines: two white wines (one is a blend; the other is the outcome of a single vine variery); a red wine blended from four grapes. We can clearly state that this project can fully represent the real traditions of Veneto area.

Villa Minelli, Ponzano
Villa Minelli is a complex of buildings dating back to the 17th century. Headquarters of the Benetton Group, it was restored between the 1970s and 1990s. The heart of the architectural design is the 5,000 square metre vineyard with its rows of Merlot, acting as a natural border between the offices and the production facilities, plus a further 3000 square metres of Carménère in the adjacent area outside the Villa.
Villa Pastega, Catena
Built in the 17th century for a noble Veneto family, Villa Pastega Manera was restructured and refurbished in the 1990s by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The complex is now home to Fabrica, the Benetton Group’s communication research centre. The villa is surrounded by 2 hectares of vines consisting of Merlot and Cabernet varieties.
Villa Persico, Ponzano
Built in the 19th century, Villa Persico was refurbished twice in the 20th. The second refurbishment project took place in the 1990s and converted the villa into the Relais Monaco hotel and conference centre. Today, the building is surrounded by over 7 hectares of vines including Merlot, Cabernet, Malvasia, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio varieties.
