The De Stefani family has been producing wines in the Veneto region in Italy since four generations. The "Redentore" wines are obtained with the philosophy that characterizes the way they operate: naturality in the vineyard and in the cellar, respect for the produced vintage and quality without compromise.
They come from young and middle-aged vineyards of the Piave valley and the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills, north of Venice. The climate, warm during the day and cool at night, the soil rich in clay and minerality, the proximity to the Adriatic Sea and to the Dolomites mountains (Alps) are key factors to offer fruity wines, fresh and with personality.
The name Redentore comes from the history and from the traditions of the territory of Venice, where were created the first specialized vineyards of Italy and where the culture of viticulture and oenology have always been in the lead.
Redentore means redemption: freedom from the plague that struck Venice between 1575 and 1577. It evokes one of the most traditional festivals, the Redentore Festival. Every third weekend in July the Venetians celebrate deliverance from the plague with a spectacular fireworks display and sumptuous dinners as the San Marco harbour fills with boats.
