The Wine: Zero Infinito Pet Nat NV
Pojer e Sandri Zero Infinito NV is a sparkling natural wine made from 100% Solaris, a hybrid disease-resistant grape variety created in Germany and grown in Trentino-Alto Adige, Northern Italy. Zero Infinito is made in the pet nat style and is part of the "col fondo" movement - a technique where the second fermentation happens in the bottle as yeast is not filtered out.
The Producer: Pojer e Sandri
Perched on the steep Eastern side of the canyon-like valley of the Adige river in the Trento region, Pojer e Sandri is one of the most remarkable wineries of the Trento region.
The dynamic team of Mario Pojer and Fiorentino Sandri have owned the estate since 1975, when Fiorentino as the landowner teamed up with Mario who had just graduated from enological school. Instead of producing wines in the international style as the rest of the world was doing, they set out to protect and revive the many local grapes of the area and produce wines which were almost forgotten.
Pojer e Sandri respect of the environment and traditions along with their outgoing personalities and hospitality soon set them on a class of their own. Today, they are widely respected as one of the most unique and trend-setting wineries in Italy.
