Stefano is a third-generation vintner and distiller from Abano Terme in Northern Italy. He grew up helping in his family’s winery from the time he could walk and eventually took over its leadership. After earning an enology degree from Scuola Enologica di Conegliano, Stefano moved to the United States with 12 years of winemaking experience and a taste for new adventures.
In 2006, he and his partners Valentina Guolo-Migotto and Dario De Conti founded Ca’ Momi Winery in Napa Valley to bring Italian wine culture to California. Stefano is a hopeless gearhead. He spends most of his time at the winery running production and geeking out on wine equipment. His commitment to authentic, soulful winemaking is surpassed only by his dedication to his children.
