About the winery
This valley of Umbria, as fascinating as it is uncontaminated, enjoys a very particular microclimate: the fogs are rare and the hills are windy; in winter the cold is dry and the temperature changes are considerable. The alluvial soils, of medium texture, rich in stones and pebbles, moderately calcareous and with a low percentage of clay, are ideal for making fine and fragrant wines. The winery's goal is to achieve the best quality possible, following the course of the vintages and respecting the territory in which the grapes are grown. The wines of I Girasoli di Sant’Andrea combine elegance and depth, authenticity and honesty, quality and affordable price. Wines for every occasion, to be uncorked with joy and lightheartedness.

History & Geography
The Sunflowers of Sant’Andrea It all begins thanks to the passion of the Gritti family, of Venetian origins but eager to move to Umbria for a new life path. As it happens in one area, the Upper Tiber, the destination of many Venetians, as evidenced by the numerous places that begin with "Ca". It was 1994 when the Gritti family bought I Girasoli di Sant’Andrea, in the valley of the Niccone river, near Umbertide. A traditional reality of 120 hectares in total with a cottage (Ca 'Andrea, in fact), a small vineyard in the hills, olive trees but also arable land, vegetable garden and wood. Over the years many things have changed: today there are about 40 hectares of vineyards, including local and lucky varieties expressing grapes from other lands. All capable, in their own way, of describing a unique territory, that of the Upper Tiber, characterized by flat hills and valleys, large temperature ranges and ideal soils for the production of fine wines.
