An act of love, of freedom, of grower pride: introduced with the 2013 vintage, the ArnaldoRivera wines are the result of an official protocol drawn up between the winery and a number of its grower partners designed to produce premium quality grapes.
The vineyards of origin are among the most prestigious in the area of the Langhe. A resource that is encapsulated in this ultimate expression of know-how and craftsmanship, where the purity of the single varietal is the absolute pinnacle.
Keeping alive the tradition of a historic Barolo-producing winery, the ArnaldoRivera brand name is how the grower families have chosen to say thank you to their inspiration, sixty years after the founding of the Cooperative.
In a masterpiece of generosity and intuition - qualities which have always been inborn in the people of these hills - the “teacher” Arnaldo Rivera managed to unite many families in a challenge with a common purpose: to produce a great wine that would add value to their community and the local area.
