The Wine People

We have worked with Stefan Girelli for over 25 years, a relationship that has yielded many exceptional wines, from everyday drinking to fine Chianti estate wines. In 2009 Stefano established a new business called ‘The Wine People’ in partnership with Frenchman, Philippe Marx, and Dutchman Peter Kosten. They have combined their skill and experience to bring affordable good value wines from across Italy, with the help of renowned Italian winemaker Stefano Chioccioli who makes all the wines. (Please look separately for the superb Chiantis from Chioccioli.)

The Fedele Nero d'Avola is packed with red berry fruit flavours and has a wonderful structure yet has soft tanins and is very approachable.
An ideal accompaniment to red meat and tomato based pasta sauces.
The grapes are grown on hillside slopes in the Trapani area, using the traditional Spalliera vine training system. The grapes are harvested in early October. The grapes are destemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 28°C with frequent pumping over in the early stages in order to ensure optimum colour extraction and soft tannins. After fermentation, the wine is racked off and malolactic fermentation takes place.
