The history of the Rivetti family began in 1890, when Giovanni Rivetti, the grandfather of the three brothers Carlo, Bruno and Giorgio, left Piedmont to emigrate to Argentina. Like most Italians of that era, his dream is to find his fortune and then return home to become a great wine producer. He unfortunately does not succeed, but to realize his dream is his son Giuseppe, who marries Lidia, buys vineyards and starts producing wine. In 1977 the family went to live at LA SPINETTA in Castagnole Lanze, a typical area of Moscato d'Asti, a simple and light wine to be enjoyed with desserts. The Rivets, convinced of the great potential of Moscato, start producing Moscato, but the family has much more ambitious objectives; in 1985 LA SPINETTA started producing its first red wine, followed by other great reds in the following years. In 1995 the first Barbaresco was born and then all the great wines of the winery. In 2001 LA SPINETTA expands beyond the borders of Piedmont and acquires 65 hectares of vineyards in Tuscany, in the area between Pisa and Volterra. All those who work at LA SPINETTA love wine, they are people who have chosen hard work in the vineyards more for passion than to earn a living, all contribute to producing great wines, working with passion and respecting the philosophy behind in LA SPINETTA.
