In the last decade, the Rivetto enterprise has steadily grown in diverse ways. The family has purchased some acres of vineyard land in Serralunga d’Alba, which promises to extend their production.
The Rivetto family began making wine in 1902 in Montaldo Scarampi, a small village located in the Asti region. In 1921 they decided to move in the old part of Alba, where they began a successful wine business. Nearly 40 years later, in 1939, Ercole, the family’s patriarch, secured the winery’s future when he purchased the Loirano estate from the Counts of Vassallo.
The winery is located on top of the Lirano hills, 400 meters above sea level, on the border with the Barolo zone. The soil, from which the richness, power and elegance of our tannins derive, it's typical of Serralunga: calcareous and rich of clay, with the presence of marles. The winery extends on 15 hectars of vineyards, 6 hectars of woodlands, 6 hectars of nut trees and 1 hectar dedicated to alternative crops.
Enrico Rivetto starts officially in 1999, actively working on the winery and bringing his work vision. This vision has matured over the years and brings the winery to where it is today.
