We took out vineyards and replanted trees, planted more than a hundred fruit plants of ancient, resistant varieties, we sew old wheat seeds, we built a greenhouse and a vegetable garden managed with organic and biodynamic practices, we created an area for compost, we built an eco-vineyard, where the vineyard lives with small woodlands and rows of aromatic herbs, and we're working on a project to recover old wells and rain waters.
Here we have a century of history, of suffering, of blood, and at the same time beauty, innovation, foresight and intuition.
Organic and biodynamic practices are the means, not the result.
I don't know the map, but I know the direction: clear, well defined, precise.
I am Enrico Rivetto, and I'm here to bring my small world to a resurrection, with manic lucidity.
Enrico start officially and actively working on the winery bringing on his work vision, that matured over the years, to get to where we are today.
Sergio, Enrico's father, builds a new cellar in Lirano, and plants new vines around it.
The winery expands by acquiring Tenuta Lirano, on the hills between Serralunga d'Alba and Sinio, surrounded by vineyards that were once owned by the count Vassallo.
Ercole, Enrico's grandfather, moves to the historic center of Alba, where he transforms the family activities and start producing wines with the best grapes of Langhe.
In Montaldo Scarampi (AT), Enrico's great-grandfather start the town's winery that soon specializes in exchanging grapes and wines.
