Veneto, Italy

  Winemaker: Alan Spinazzè The origin of this winery is as interesting and historical as its name. Tenuta Santomè (St. Thomas) was chosen when a missionary who was born and bred in what is now the farmhouse on the Santomè estate, wrote to the Spinazzè family from far away Brazil to suggest the name. He felt that the figure of this Saint was ideally suited to “seal” the events and products of this farm. Located very near the towns of Treviso and Venice, the Santomè vineyards cover an area of 60 hectares, 30 of which are located within the main estate in Biancade, and the other 30 situated on “Grave di Papadopoli,” an island on the River Piave between the villages Cimadolmo and Maserada. Tenuta Santomè is run by the Spinazzè family with the consultancy of the well-known winemaker Marzio Pol. The winery is a model in the modern production of wines with close planting the scrupulous selection of the grapes, first on the vines, then in the cellar, and for the use of innovative wine-making systems. It is also 100% solar-powered and uses no pesticides at all. Shelftalkers  Winery Website

santome-rabosoRaboso del Piave DOC
Raboso Piave is a native vine variety and its presence in the lands of the river Piave has been supported by documentary evidence since the 1600s. It bears the well-deserved name "Piave", for both its historical origins and its continuous presence over the centuries in the land where this sacred river flows. It is cultivated throughout the entire Trevisan plain, "on both sides of the river Piave". Raboso Piave is a rustic vine variety, which ripens late, and is excellent for producing wines for ageing.
