Dream is a serious thing...

Vigna degli Estensi born ten years ago from Stefano's passion for good wines. He was a geologist that becomes sommelier and oenologist to pursue his dream. With the partnership of the wife Laura and the sister in law, an agricultural company was founded. The name Estensi honors associates' hometown, Ferrara, ancient capital of the important Estense dynasty. Laura and Stefano leave their town to stay at a very short distance from the sea, upon the Senigallia rolling hills in the Marche Region.

The cultivar lacrima, fiano, sangiovese and montepulciano were planted on the company farm land. A vineyard about 40 years old with extraordinary quality verdicchio grapes was managed. At the same time a winery was built using the most modern instruments brought by wine technology such as stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, an inert gas saturation system with nitrogen and a close pneumatic press. A barrel room was filled with tonneaux and barriques.

The first grape harvest was in 2011 starting with 4 wine labels to reach, in a few years, the actual 10 labels.
