The De Stefani family originates in 1624 Refrontolo, a little hilly village in Veneto Italy. In the second half of 1800 Valeriano De Stefani, the founder, individualized the best soil where to produce wines with rare personality in the Colvendrame estate in Refrontolo, on the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, north of Venice.
His son Valeriano, second generation, inspired by his careful wife Angelina, began the tradition which the De Stefanis have always adhered: total devotion to quality with no compromise.
Tiziano, third generation brought important innovations in vineyard management and in vinification. In the Le Ronche estate in Fossalta di Piave the vinification, ageing and sales center of the winery are located.
Today Alessandro, fourth generation, who has joined his father in 1990, produces wines which are recommended in the most important Italian wines Guides under a very natural philosophy: in the vineyard absence of herbicides and chemical fertilizers and in the cellar vinification without added preservatives and sulphites.
