HISTORY

Est.1887. Since then we have worked with the unaltered dedication to craft a wine which is more than wine – it is a 130-year old love story.
Vigna Rioli is the story of Trivelloni’s family, Augusto (in the picture) and Italia are the founders, who envision the future in the richness of the countryside of Velletri. The passion for the vineyards is passed onto Edmondo, their son, and his wife Irene. The new generation embraces experimentations in wine making to improve and craft more natural and higher quality wines. Italia and Irene started the construction of the winery and the villa, milestones to implement innovation and the pursuit of excellence.
The child on the Vespa is Augusto, named after the grandfather, one of the children of Edmondo and Irene who will steer Vigna Rioli toward the future. Augusto with his enologist wife Anna have continued with same energy the family passion – continuously improving, learning and innovating the high-quality wine making process.
Through this history, our initial vineyard has grown steadily around the ancient mulberry, symbol of Vigna Rioli winery. As a precious rooftop, the mulberry of Vigna Rioli has preserved the wisdom of our mastery, the care for vineyards and the respect for the earth we borrow from the future generations.

FUTURE

Vigna Rioli’s history keeps on rolling, though. The winery’s story moves on with the fourth generation of wine makers, Federica, Enrica and Federico, respectively the daughters and the son-in-law of Augusto and Anna. We have decided to come back, from Australia to Italy, against all odds, to pursue dynamic wine making and craft a genuine, simple and high-quality wine.
In fact, the future of our extraordinary adventure named Vigna Rioli is yet to be written. We have designed the new wine bottles to embody the symbol of the mulberry, the vineyards and the 1887 founding year. In this way, we can feature the best of the traditional wine making as well as its most innovative characters and techniques.
We always process the grapes at controlled temperature to instill in our wines only the primary and plain aromas to let you taste our quality and tradition.

TERRITORY

Our wines are crafted in the fertile and luxurious countryside of Velletri. Human origins in Velletri date back millenia, thanks to the mineral and volcanic soils which allow any cultivation. During the Roman Age, Velletri was a flourishing and affluent city, crucial also for the political scenario. In fact, the first Imperial family had its origins in Velletri – Caesar Augustus, first emperor of the Roman Empire, was from Velletri.
Since then, Velletri has kept its infuence and connections with Rome, also during the Church State. Velletri was progressively enriched with monuments, churches and precious civil architectures.
In 1723, Alessandro Borgia, Archbishop and historian, in his historical book “History of the Church and of the City of Velletri”, acknowledged the farmers of Velletri as “excellent masters” in agriculture.
Nowadays, Velletri is a fascinating city one hour away from Rome by train. Velletri is easily accessible and it welcomes you to have nice weekends full of beauty and taste. Vigna Rioli waits for you to taste and discover together this ancient history.

VINEYARDS

The vineyards are in the rich countryside of Velletri, just a few steps away from Rome, on the hills of the ancient Rioli district. The volcanic soils, the closeness to the sea and the southerly breeze create a perfect climate for splendid grapes and vineyards. This favourable climate ensures a natural environment conditions against the seasonal diseases that jeopardise the plant health. Consequently, our grapes reach perfect ripeness, also thanks to an optimal exposure to the sun.
Current production techniques adhere to the principles of integrated crop management and low-yield pruning methods. The vines that are expressed at the best in our vineyards are Bombino Bianco, Latium Malvasia, Tuscan Trebbiano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and Merlot.
Vigna Rioli winery has mastered controlled-temperature wine making to enhance the heritage of perfumes and sensations of the grapes. The ageing process in barrels and barrique and the attentive work in the cellar have resulted in an excellent and qualitative product – a wine that is more than wine.

FUTURE

Questa nostra storia non ha però un finale. Continua con la quarta generazione di giovani viticoltori, Federica, Enrica e Federico, rispettivamente figlie e genero di Augusto e Anna.
Abbiamo deciso di ritornare dall’Australia all’Italia, viaggiando contro ogni pronostico per una viticoltura dinamica e che sa valorizzare le origini di un vino semplice, genuino, di qualità.
Infatti, il futuro della straordinaria avventura chiamata Vigna Rioli è ancora tutto da scrivere. Il nuovo design delle bottiglie riparte dal gelso, dalla vigna, dalla data di fondazione del 1887 per presentare al meglio un vino frutto della migliore tradizione vitivinicola e di una vinificazione moderna e tecniche innovative.
Lavoriamo a temperatura controllata per infondere nel vino solo gli aromi primari, semplici, per concentrare tutta la qualità in un sorso di tradizione.
