Why Pojer e Sandri?
I recently discovered Pojer e Sandri through an importer and old friend. The winery is located in Faedo in the Valle di Cembra in Trento. It started with two friends, Fiorentino Sandri and Marco Pojer on just two hectares. Today, Federico Sandri is the winemaker and they have a wide range of wines, grappa, eau-de-vie, and vinegars.
The wines are expressive of their terroir, delicious, and approachable.
I visited the winery early this year. Seeing all the vineyards and how much labor and meticulous attention to detail goes into the work in the vineyards and the cellar, I appreciated the wines so much more. These wines are truly an expression of the families’ vision, devotion to their land, and passion.
