About the Event
The history of the Stefano Accordini Winery begins in the early twentieth century, when Gaetano Accordini, Stefano's father produced wine as a sharecropper. In the seventies, after the abolition of sharecropping contracts, Stefano bought the first vineyard of the Accordini family - the "Fornetto", in the Negrar valley - crowning his dream of founding a cellar. Stefano produced Valpolicella wine for the local market until 1982. The highest winery in Valpolicella Classica.
Today, Stefano Accordini has 25 hectares of vineyards on the highest territory of the Valpolicella Classica, and defines their winemaking as "mountain" viticulture. Thanks to the particular climatic and soil conditions of this area, the wines have particular and unmistakable characteristics. The decision to produce in the mountains proved successful: the wines, unique in both flavor and aroma, were immediately much appreciated.
