La Stoppa are an ancient wine estate in Val Trebbiola, not far from the River Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza.

100 years ago, the then owner Ageno, a lawyer of some repute planted Bordeaux varieties and named them after the more illustrious wines of that region, Bordo, Bordo Bianco and Pino. In the 70s the estate was taken over by the Pantaleoni Family and now is run by Elena Pantaleoni according to biodynamic principles. The vines have been replanted and they now produce wines from local varieties such as Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Barbera and Bonarda, as well as the wines from their ancient vines of Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Semillon. The commitment to natural production, minimal work in the cellar and the excellent terroir yield wines of character, freshness and style which have something of the Bordeaux about them even with the Italian varieties. Perhaps, the 'Terroir' remembers its past and transfuses the history of this magnificent estate into every grape!

    Deep and lush in colour with savoury and complex flavours. A full bodied orange with a satisfying finish.

    Served this blind at a tasting for a crowd who usually buy from supermarkets and this was most people’s favourite wine.

    Yes, it’s complex and savoury as you might expect from an orange wine with this much skin contact. However, it has this amazing freshness, with a kind of ripe peach and lychee-like lift.

    An unusual and delicious wine which is fresh and easy to drink. The fermenting process draws out fabulous flavours and the aroma is superb.
