Cantina San Martina founded in 1968 by Angelo Pittaro and now run by his sons nicknamed "the Pittars" has the story of family, story of passion, and love for a land and its scents, love for its rhythm and seasons.
Romano, Angelo’s father, a self taught man, started growing grapes and producing wine between the two world wars. Then Angelo, a passionate and talented man, continued and consolidated his father’s work. He established and ran for thirty years the “Cantina San Martino” which is now lead by his sons “the Pitars”, four brothers who maintain the family’s wine making tradition.
The estate’s property extends for 140 hectares of which 100 are devoted to vineyards in the area called “Grave Del Friuli” in north eastern Italy. In this specific geographical area wine growing is favored by a particular microclimate and the grapes, if tenaciously cared for with competence and love, are suitable to the production of excellent wines.
