OUR SPECIAL SELECTION
After many years, we are fulfilling a dream and producing our first pure 100% Cabernet Franc. Matured for 14 months in high-quality French barrique oak barrels and converted to organic farming, this is an impressive wine with its aromas of red fruits, herbs and light spice. Our painstaking work in the wine cellar highlights these gifts of nature. The wine is a limited release - we use only the very best grapes and produce only 2,000 bottles.

FROM GRAPE TO AWARD-WINNING TOP WINE

The top wine from Azienda Villa Santo Stefano is composed in the tradition of the great French cuvées: grapes of the Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%) and Petit Verdot (10%) varieties. Per The aim is generally to have three to four grapes on the vine in order to generate a maximum intensity of the ingredients per grape. Only experienced people are responsible for care, harvest and hand selection Winery employees.

"I have very simple tastes: I'm always happy with the best."

Oscar Wilde

A computer-aided high-tech fermentation system was installed in 2014. It not only serves to precisely control the process temperature, but also to control all processes in order to bring the natural product of grapes into the bottle in its original form. Fermentation is usually completed after 12 days. Depending on the grape variety and vintage, the wine then matures for between 12 and 16 months in high-quality French barrique barrels in a barrique room that is precisely controlled at 15° C and 83% humidity.
