Stefano Stefani came to Australia after meeting his wife, Rina, in 1981. Stefano’s childhood was surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in the little village of Lonnano in Tuscany. Stefano and Rina established the Stefani family vineyard in Healesville in 1998 with substantial plantings in the following years. With a focus on family heritage, they strive to make wines that express time and place, both past and present.

Stefani Estate produce many Italian varieties, including their ‘Boccallupo’ Sangiovese. The incredibly unique element about Stefani Estate’s Sangiovese, is the use of an indigenous variety of clone, specific to the Stefano family. Cuttings were sourced from Stefano’s grandfather’s property in Tuscany and imported over 14 years ago. They were placed in Australian quarantine for three years before being planted in their Yarra Valley vineyard.
