A passion for wine and a long experience in the field, which have developed over a lifetime of learning and observation, are integral parts to my personal story. They are also essential traits of the Azienda Agricola Alessandro Rivetto.
My grandfather Ercole introduced me to the vineyards and cellar, as did my great-grandfather Giovanni before him. Thanks to them, I began this love story and lifelong passion with wine.
Ercole had strong ties to his territory of origins. He knew how to transform his father’s intuition and use it as a launching point to explore new productive possibilities. But more than anything else, he gave me the pleasure of working with a smile. I also learned this from him: to love what I do and do what I love, bringing a smile to people I meet and those who taste my wine.
I found this same spirit, stubborn yet lighthearted, mindful but not too serious, in 2012 in my business partner Alessandro Bonelli, an enologist, who tends to all technical aspects of the winery’s production today. I also found it in Mauro Adriano, who added his extensive knowledge of the international market when he joined us.
We form a team that carries the project of a dream that began when I was just a child, one that I’ve followed for over twenty years of work in my professional life: to produce wines that excite through telling consumers about how they are made from hard work, pleasure, and an inclination for sharing.
For us, that dream today is a compelling exploration of what our vineyards are able to offer us, year after year. But it is also the challenge that we set ourselves for new clients who discover and appreciate our wines in every angle of the world. Because we’re certain that beyond growing vines, we enjoying cultivating wonder and the genuine smile that our work gives us.
