The history of this company, which returned to the family’s ownership after more than a century, dates back to the late 1800s. In fact, founded by Pinin Rivetti, he then saw Dante Rivetti, in the second half of the 70s, at the helm of the family winery, from which the company then took its name. Currently managed by Katia, Mara and Ivan, sons of Dante and supported by the well-known oenologist Donato Lanati for wine consulting.
