The winery is located in the municipality of Montecchia di Crosara (province of Verona) in the Italian region of Veneto. It was founded in 2002 by the married couple Marina Ferraretto and Sandro Tasoniero. The name (meaning "son of Bruno") symbolises the connection with the family and the local culture and tradition. The building, with pink Veronese marble floors, is built in the typical style of a farmhouse. It is arranged on three levels with a reception room with vaulted ceilings and a kitchen with fireplace in the basement as well as an underground barrel cellar with wine tasting room.

Sandro de Bruno - Weingutsgebäude mit Rebflächen

The vineyards cover 23 hectares of vines on volcanic soils and sedimentary rock soils of marine origin. They are nestled in the Soave area and the Lessini Mountains at an altitude of 150 to 600 metres above sea level. The highest and best sites include Monte San Piero and Cansignorio. The autochthonous white wine varieties Garganega and Durella are favoured, but the international varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco (Pinot Blanc) and Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris), as well as Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) and Cabernet Sauvignon are also cultivated. The vineyards are cultivated according to integrated, environmentally friendly and sustainable criteria, taking biodiversity (biological diversity) into account. This includes organic fertilisation and the complete avoidance of chemical products for plant protection.

Thanks to a late, selective grape harvest by hand, only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are processed. The grapes are transported to the cellar in small crates. The aim is to produce characterful, long-lasting wines with a pronounced minerality. Vinification is carried out according to non-invasive principles with as little intervention as possible (as much as necessary, as little as possible). After chilled maceration on the skins with nitrogen saturation, the grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation takes place at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks, followed by long storage on the fine lees with weekly bâtonnage during the first few months. This also applies to the sparkling base wines. Depending on the type of wine, ageing takes place mainly in old tonneau barrels and partly in used French barrique barrels. The sparkling wines are produced according to the Metodo classico and are aged on the lees for at least 36 to 100 months.
