Born in the
Our origins are unique, as unique is the territory in which Ricchi winery was born.
The fascinating etymology of the name Ricchi dates back to the latin language; RICHINUS was a wild and difficult territory to farm.
Way back in 1815 the “27 Pertiche” (unit of measurement used by the ancient Romans) named RICHI, were classified as “Zerbi”, dry and sterile fields.
The morainic hills classification would have dissuaded anybody to invest in it; but didn’t hinder the foresight of Enrico Stefanoni, the great great grandfather of the current property, who planted vineyards, obtaining excellent wines, which today make Ricchi winery a corner of Paradise.
Cantina Ricchi is a special place, where ethic of production, respect for the natural passing of time, and the use of advanced technologies, coexist creating impeccable wines, while protecting sustainability.
Producing good wine is good for everyone, even for the planet.
Cantina Ricchi is not just a place, but an experience full of familiarity, style and attention for its wines, as for its guests.
Cantina Ricchi was born in the heart of the mantuan morainic hills. Land of famous battles and meeting points between venetian and lombard cultures. An area rich in natural beauty and wonderful views.
This territory has unique and particular aspects, thanks to its proximity to lake garda and the geological events that created the morainic hills.
