In 1986, Stefano and Maddalena Riboli began farming a small,16-acre vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation. The vineyard is ideal for the production of structured, full-bodied wines. Santo Stefano Cabernet Sauvignon is a mouth-filling wine with a smooth texture and soft tannins. Enticing aromas of vanilla and spice are followed by ripe flavors of blackberry, currant, and black cherry. The finish shows hints of bittersweet chocolate. Within each handcrafted bottle, we celebrate the achievements of our family and all the pioneers of the California wine industry.
