Ripa della Volta is the outcome of people coming together: Francesco and Michele Montresor, already running the Ottella winery; Andrea Pernigo, a young and passionate entrepreneur and keen lover of his land, the Valpantena and Tommaso Zanini, who initiated the meeting between the Montresor brothers and Pernigo.
The company’s vineyards are managed according to strict criteria of sustainability, using agronomic techniques that do not affect the ecosystem and offer greater guarantees for consumer health. In 2019, the company obtained organic certification for its Valpolicella. The entire production will be organic certified as of the 2019 vintage of Amarone and Ripasso.
Ripa della Volta exclusively cultivates and enhances native and traditional grape varieties to highlight the importance of the individual characteristics of each vine and the uniqueness of their fruit: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, Spigamonte and Turchetta.
Grapes are harvested and selected strictly by hand. Our limited productions are the result of great care and attention to the quality of raw materials and human labour.
Sustainability, respect for the territory and craftsmanship: our philosophy is based on these values.
A contemporary gesture
The creation of the ‘Ripa della Volta’ label by the artist Patrizio Vanessi sums up a gesture, a detail. It was neither studied nor planned but spontaneous, on the spot, with no room for hesitation or reflection, and conceptually powerful, harsh and true like the land from which it comes.
