Two Seattle events featuring the wine and vinegar of Pojer e Sandri
Special menus at Cafe Lago and The Corson Building
Federico Sandri—son of Pojer e Sandri's pioneering founder, Fiorentino Sandri—will be visiting Seattle and teaming with The Corson Building and Cafe Lago to showcase the estate's extraordinary products.
Discover Pojer e Sandri
Pojer e Sandri, one of the most remarkable wineries of Italy’s Trento province, is perched on the precipitious eastern side of the Adige River's canyon-like valley (pictured). Back in the 1970's, the dynamic team of Mario Pojer and Fiorentino Sandri (Federico's father), started their partnership and began producing truly exceptional products that reflected flavors of the region.
Pioneers in wine & vinegar making
Instead of following the popular International Style of winemaking, Mario and Fiorentino sought to protect and revive local grape varietals and produce wines almost forgotten in the region. They also took up the challenge of making fine, aromatic wine vinegars, an unpopular practice at the time for makers of wine in Italy—since many people held the notion that bad wine is used to make vinegar. Pioneers in the now esteemed production of estate-made, small-batch vinegars, Pojer e Sandri proved otherwise, turning out piquant vinegar by applying the traditional slow-percolating process and aging in oak-barrels, much as is done with wine. .
