Guerrieri Rizzardi | Veneto
The historic house of Guerrieri-Rizzardi dates back to the unification of two ancient estates of the Veneto in 1913, when Carlo Rizzardi from Valpolicella, married Guiseppina Guerrieri of Bardolino. They now produce wine from family owned vineyards in the three Classico areas of Verona: Bardolino, Valpolicella and Soave.
In 2011 the family opened a new state-of-the-art winery on the hills of Bardolino as part of a long-term plan to re-locate and modernise the estates entire production process. Rizzardi’s new winery is completely solar powered, combining the best that technology offers in a carbon neutral way with vineyards that have been in the family for centuries.
With extensive holdings of “cru” acreage, the family is well known throughout Europe for their sensational, mineral rich example of Soave Classico, the tension driven Ripasso they produce from Pojega, and most importantly for making one of the most classical and age-worthy examples of single vineyard Amarone in the region.
