Founded in 1811, the Santa Sofia wine company has its headquarters and cellars at Pedemonte, to the north of Verona (Italy), in the aristocratic villa designed by Andrea Palladio in the 16th century and known as Villa Sarego. It lies in one of the most beautiful and temperate zones of the Valpolicella Classica area. Since 1996 Villa Santa Sofia has been included among UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites together with the other houses designed by the architect Andrea Palladio.
