Veneto is a wine region in north-eastern Italy, it is protected from the harsh northern European climate by the Alps, the cooler climate found here, is well-suited to and is the home of Prosecco.
Veneto also boasts warmer Adriatic coastal plains and the Lake Garda Lake region which are where the renowned Valpolicella and Amarone reds come from.
Guerrieri Rizzardi, have vineyards in prime positions in the classico DOC zones in Veneto.
They produce fine wines from their historical estates. The relationship between their land, heritage and tradition has, for many years, shaped how they produce their wines, yet they never loose sight of innovation and ways to preserve the environment in their quest to produce a better bottle of wine.
The ultimate goal is to produce wines of quality that have fruit purity, structure and are true reflections of their vineyards. You can taste this in every bottle.
We absolutely adore the POJEGA Valpolicella Ripasso, it’s the perfect red for Singapore and is available in stunning Magnums too. The Rizzardi Prosecco has been a main stay wine since TTG Wines began in 2015, in fact we were drinking and enjoying this bubbly, long before the company began. Amarone lovers need look no further than the award winning 3 Cru, it is just incredible for the price. A small yield is the cornerstone of Rizzardi’s success, we see this time and time again, if you get the right land, take the greatest care and focus on the quality of fruit vs the quantity , the wines speak for themselves. The work done in the vineyard vastly reduces what has to be done in the cellar. In the cellar they combine traditional practices with modern wine-making techniques but at a minimum level of intervention.
The winery runs on solar pannels and they use natural compost to fertilize the vines and keep the immediate environment in the tradition of natural plant diversity – in today’s language, biodiversity.
