Castello di Stefanago

The Castello di Stefanago winery is a little gem in Oltrepò Pavese. They have been producing wines for generations and since years ago they have chosen to go organic. Not only that, here there is a great attention to the preservation of biodiversity. The vineyards are arranged in small plots, spread throughout 135 hectares of meadows, forests, orchards, and arable farmland. To add to the uniqueness of this winery, the cellars are set in a dramatic XI century castle. At Catello di Stefanago they produce natural wine, where the human intervention in the production are reduced to the minimum. While they bottle reds, whites as well sparkling wines, I am personally love their sparkling wine selection.

The grape variety originated in eastern France’s Burgundy wine region, but it is now grown all over the world, from England to New Zealand. Growing Chardonnay is seen as a rite of passage for new and emerging wine regions, as well as an easy entry into the international wine market.
