Genagricola’s ‘V8+ Vineyards’ project was born in 2010 as an extension of Tenuta Sant’Anna to offer a line of sparkling wines, all made in the traditional Charmat method. The elegant bottle is unusual and attractive. Grapes are rigorously sourced from the Tenuta Sant’Anna property (one of the largest land-owners in the area), and each wine carries the name of a Sior (Sir in the old Venitian dialect), the personification of each product with different characters within the Genagricola organization and their attitudes
Ottopiù Vineyards is owned by Genagricola, itself part of Assicurazioni Generali. Genagricola was founded in 1851 and is today the agriculture and food holding company of Generali Italia and the largest agricultural enterprise in Italy.
