Stefano Farina's wine career began when he was young at a restaurant he ran with his wife Giovanna. However, not satisfied with the job of selling wine, Stefano soon began to burn his passion for winemaking. He started trading in 1930 and was also interested in the steel industry, and when the business got off to a good start, Stefano finally founded his own winery, Vinicola Stefano Farina, in 1939. He promised his three sons, "I will never let go of my most beloved wine and viticulture in my life." To carry on that will, one of his sons, Giancarlo, studied abroad in Aruba and studied brewing. His son, Stephen's grandson, also inherited the winery, and Stefano Farina's winemaking continues to this day.
