THE FAMILY
We could call Villa Angarano “The Villa of the Ladies”, since a female descendant line of the greatest Venetian families has brought the Villa in the hands of the present owners as dowry over three centuries. Well aware of the treasure inherited from their ancestors who have handed it down from generation to generation with love and care, the five sisters Carla, Giovanna, Anna, Maruzza and Isabella are currently carrying on the matriarchal tradition of the Villa.

HISTORY
In 1556 Count Giacomo Angarano commissioned Villa Angarano Bianchi Michiel to his friend and well-known architect Andrea Palladio, who is one of the most influential figures in the history of western architecture. He was the most important architect in the Republic of Venice, where he designed many villas that made him famous. In 1996 Villa Angarano was included in the list of Italian UNESCO World Heritage.

ENVIRONMENT
It is possible to reach the Villa either from the river Brenta, where it appears in all its magnificence, or from Bassano del Grappa long the Campesana road. From here, you enter the Villa across the rural Courtyard, framed by centuries-old American wine grapes, and the great central Farmyard, where wheat was once unloaded and which has now become an evocative patio surrounded by dwellings.
The connection between the rural Courtyard and the Barchessas of the Villa is quite secret and unexpected.
The Eastern Barchessa includes S. Maria Maddalena's little church, where the family's weddings have taken place, and the Old Stables nearby. Here wooden plaques hanging over the stalls still show the names of past horses, such as Aladar, Saturno and Raul. Incredibly, these names have never been erased; rather they have endured through time, like all the rest, to testify an ancient past when people travelled only on horse-drawn carriages and wine grapes were pressed with bare feet.

INNOVATION AND FUTURE
Farming company VILLA ANGARANO's vineyards extend up to the right bank of river Brenta, in the Eastern area of Breganze DOC.
After centuries of traditional methods, a long and challenging renovation process started with the vineyard replantation in 2003. In order not to lose the area's tipicity, uniqueness and scents, it was chosen to replant the old biotypes which have been grown in the area for centuries, such as local variety Vespaiola. Anyway, some so-called “international” grape varieties can be considered as local and typical as the native ones, since they have been grown for generations and have assimilated the distinctive features of our place. This is the case of our Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Moreover, Villa Angarano has adopted a model of agriculture respectful of human health and the environment. This is the reason why in 2012 Villa Angarano began a transformative process to biological farming, taking benefit from the natural fertility of the soil. Similarly, in the cellar we limit the use of enological products to give room to biotechnologies.
 
In “The Four books of Architecture”, Andrea Palladio describes Villa Angarano in this way: “This is a well-known place for its precious wines here produced, for its fruits here grown, and even more for the courtesy of the owner” (1570).
