The story of the Marchionni family, the owners of Collestefano, is a path of redemption. As a family of farmers, the Marchionnis arrived in the 1960s at Rustano di Castelraimondo (MC), in the valley of Verdicchio di Matelica. This hard-working family managed to acquire, in 1978, the small hillside village that has always been called “Collestefano”. Fabio Marchionni, son of the owners, graduated with a degree from Oenology where he did his thesis on Verdicchio di Matelica. He then traveled to Germany to work for Weingut Zähringer where he learned to work and farm organically with minimal impact to the environment. After a brief stint in wine bars and restaurants he finally joined the family farm in 1998. This north-facing vineyard sits at 1,400 feet above sea level and about an hour west of the coastal town of Ancona. Industrial chemicals were never used here, with organic certification awarded in 1995. There isn't a bad pairing for verdicchio, we enjoy it most with linguine all vongole.
