SANTA & D’SAS is a collaboration between two winemaking families – Santarossa & Di Sciascio
Andrew Santarossa and Matthew Di Sciascio met while studying their Bachelor of Wine Science at Deakin and Charles Sturt Universities. With a shared Italian cultural heritage, a strong passion for making wine and a great friendship a joint venture seemed like a natural next step.
The company was established in 2013 and Andrew and Matthew went about sourcing fantastic wine grapes to make their first wines. After a process of hand crafting these wines together, several long lunches and of course a few bottles of great wine, it came time to think about a label for this jointly made wine. SANTA & D’SAS was born.
Excited by this concept, production has grown and fruit is now sourced from 5 different Victorian wine regions: King Valley, Yarra Valley, Heathcote, Henty & Geelong.
