San Francesco della Vigna: a blend of history, culture, art and wine

A voyage that will fascinate the curious and enthusiasts alike; an itinerary that combines history, culture, art, and wine; an all-round experience in which our guests are accompanied in discovering the architectural complex of San Francesco della Vigna, with its Church - designed by Sansovino and Palladio - the Cloisters - a timeless location - and the zone of the monastery, with the oldest urban vineyard in Venice, looked after since 2019 by Santa Margherita’s agronomists. At the end of the visit, there is a tasting of two iconic wines under the Santa Margherita label: Pinot Grigio Impronta del Fondatore Alto Adige D.O.C. vintage 2020 and the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Brut “52” vintage 2020.

Santa Margherita


Santa Margherita wines: taste explorersMonasteries, abbeys, hermitages and convents: many of these religious buildings, as well as being repositories of religious and cultural knowledge, stand watch over vineyards in Italy’s most renowned wine growing areas. Italy is home to a wealth of historic monasteries and architectural treasures, many of which are religious buildings where the art of wine making has continued uninterrupted over the centuries or where this great tradition has been resurrected in recent times, such is the case at San Francesco della Vigna, the oldest urban vineyard in Venice. A truly unique site where mysticism and culture combine and has been tended by agronomists from Santa Margherita since 2019.
