Stefano Tonelli

Year of Establishment

1912

Region

Marche

The Tonelli family have been vignerons for three generations. In 1985 Francesco, an agronomist and a sommelier, decided to leave his job as a teacher and to dedicate himself completely to viticulture and wine making: he searched for rare and old vines of Vernaccia Rossa and had them reproduced by specialised nurseries. He also helped to establish the tiny “Pergola” appellation (of a total vineyard extension of barely 45 hectares and made up of just 3 producers). Francesco is supported by his son Stefano, an oenologist, who, after having worked for a few wineries in Australia, is now helping his father with passion and dedication.
