The De Stefani family has been producing wine in the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene since the late 1800s. Today Alessandro De Stefani, fourth generation, still strives for originality in his wines, using local indigenous grape varieties or local techniques. Although not certified they are organic and are continually searching to make improvements in their vineyards, which average 25 years in age.

The De Stefani Pinot Grigio is not just your average Pinot Grigio – it has a rich and full flavour with delicious pure citrus flavours and a hint of red berry fruit. The Prosecco Método Zéro has a clean and fruity character with golden apple notes and pairs well with moules marinara. The Rosé Método Zéro, made from 50% Marzemino and 50% Raboso, has flavours of raspberry and strawberry and is the perfect summer aperitif. The 100% Marzemino Stèfen 1624 is regularly rated one of the best Italian red wines. Made from dried grapes using an ancient local technique, this wine is rich and full-bodied with blackberry fruit, sweet vanilla oak and rich spice on the finish. Ideal with game, roasted meats or cheese.
