Collestefano was started in 1998 when Fabio Marchionni took over the estate that had been in his family for years. After getting his degree in agriculture, where he did his thesis on Verdicchio di Matelica, he went to Germany to work for Weingut Zähringer where he learned to work and farm organically with minimal impact on the environment. The Matelica zone is further inland and at a higher elevation than the more common Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi and because of the Georgaphy and less favourable climate is generally more difficult to produce.
