WINE, PASSION & MORE

Wine knows how to adorn the most sordid hovel with marvelous luxury and make more than one fabulous portal appear in the gold of its red mist like a sun setting in a cloudy sky.

about us

company philosophy

I Stefanini covers 20 hectares of fertile growing volcanic soil in the coll-climate region of Valle d’Alpone, a Verona river valley rich in fossil deposits on the east end of Soave. Head winemaker and owner Francesco Tessari works with his father, vineyard manager Valentino Tessari. Presently, the techniques of cultivating the vines while respecting the land, and exalting the quality of the product encompass the current agronomic methodology.

The Stefanini wines, in accordance with traditional winemaking techniques of Soave, are not aged in oak barrels, but in carefully lined tanks made of stainless steel.

Francesco Tessari is one of the only producers who has launched the concept of a high quality Soave wine, capable of offering a rich fleshiness without losing its drinkability or fragrance. He effectively controls yields in the vineyard, even for his simplest wines, which is coupled with an intermittent search for maturity, which allows for the production of only the most ambitious labels of the highest quality vintage.

The result is a fresh and fruity wine, which continues to gain top scores in all major wine guides and current reviews.

about

history

ancient wine-making tradition

I Stefanini winery, established in 2003, specializes in steel-aged, aromatic white wines that feature the Garganega grape, an indigeous varietal of the Soave region.

Owned and operated by the Tessari family, the winery was named after distant ancestor Stefano Tessari, whose family began experimenting with agriculture and grape cultivation as far back as 1800.
