Destefanis Winery, Wine from Fourth Generations
Michele Destefanis, Patriarch
Michele Destefanis was born in 1860 in Our Lady of the horses where he lives and works with the family, the brothers producing peaches, grapes, wine and breeding calves.
The inconvenience of the road between Madonna horses and the main one leading to Canale, Alba, Asti, means that Michele, witty man of intuition, buy a plot of 20,000 square meters to a Jewish family in the plain of Valpone, where now stands the ‘current Cantina Destefanis. In 1910 he built the house with cellar and barn alongside the provincial road Canale/San Damiano d’ Asti. Michele, in his new company Valpone , continues his work, then moved on to his children Federico and Bernardo said ” Ricu ”, when pondering well the production and marketing of peaches and wine.
