Alessandro de Stefani is the fourth generation of his family to make wine in the Veneto – but the first to have benefited from the extraordinary popularity of Prosecco. Listen to use chat about the different terroirs of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, his love of the red Marzemino grape, the role of social media in wine marketing and why Ernest Hemingway was such a big fan of his family’s wines.
To read more about Alessandro have a look at the De Stefani website. You can also follow him on Instagram @destefaniwinery.
