A lovely little sipper, easily enjoyed before or during a meal. The winery dates back to 1866, with Valeriano de Stefani at the helm since 2007. Not only are they committed to farming without herbicides or chemical fertilizers and producing without added preservatives or sulfites, sustainability is perhaps even more a key pillar of their philosophy. Their commitment to sustainability extends, as it should, beyond the vineyard and winery into the community, for who are we saving the planet for if not our neighbors?
