Fattoria Santo Stefano, Greve in Chianti

In October 2021 the Santo Stefano winery celebrated its 60th anniversary, inviting members of the wine press and other wine reviewers to share a special day of hospitality, including a detailed insight of the vineyards history. Also on offer was an interesting tasting flight of their Chianti Classico from 2006 to 2018, followed by a vote on the wines sampled. The celebration culminated with a spectacular luncheon in the old cellars.

It was a glorious occasion with the backdrop of a bright, crisp, sunny autumn day.

The event was hosted by Elena and the Bendinelli family and presided by renowned wine journalist Leonardo Romanelli.

The flight of wines were all Chianti Classico, except for the 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Drugo DOCG and the 2011 Gran Selezione, which were served from Magnum.
