A passion for wine and a long experience in the sector, 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 (thus Alessandro). 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.
