Ripa della Volta

I n the heart of Valpantena, just a stone’s throw from the historic city of Verona, stands Ripa della Volta. This Veronese winemaking reality represents the passion and vision of Andrea Pernigo, who founded the winery in the belief that respect for the land and the use of organic practices are fundamental to creating superior wines.

Twenty-five hectares of land in the Valpantena, between 300 and 600 metres above sea level, among unspoilt lands to be cultivated with respect. A unique environment, where the vineyard is protected and enhanced, and where sustainability is the key to excellent, native and sustainable products.

Sustainability 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.

Respect 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.

Craftsmanship 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.
