They were founded in 1978 by Panteoni Family. Elena Panteoni, the present lady owner, is revolutionary, who has become a recognized mentor/leader in Italy for the artisanal production of wine. In 1996, they began using organic agriculture, and La Stoppa was certified organic in 2008. In the cellar, they took even more natural approach, using indigenous yeasts, long macerations on the skins, only a tiny amount of sulfites at bottling and no filtration. La Stoppa is the stalwart in the production of natural wines in Italy.
