The Castello di Stefanago winery began a long time ago and is the work of generations. The people, their dedication, passion, connection to and respect for the land, nature, countryside, the constant research to improve upon tradition: these are the elements that tell the story of the company.
In the organically certified winery the work is carried out carefully and gently to protect the quality obtained in the vineyard: the natural inclinations of every must are respected, their evolution times are followed and aging is aided by time in large wooden casks of various dimensions and species.
Wine lovers can visit the castle and the old cellars, and learn about the different characteristics of each wine and the winemaking and aging processes. Visiting guests can also enjoy wine tastings of the prestigious wines of the winery.
Furthermore, from March to October, there is even more to enjoy: the cellar transforms into a place for cheese and charcuterie tastings, vegetables, and desserts. Get to know and understand the wines of this territory which are its most significant expression.
This winery is part of the Italian Organic Wine Route.
