With over 350 years of passion in Valpolicella wine Guerrieri Rizzardi joins the Amarone Families
As of today Guerrieri Rizzardi has officially become a member of the Association of Amarone Families. The Association founded in 2009 brings together the most important companies in Valpolicella, companies united in their care of production, preservation of historical heritage and commitment to the international promotion of Amarone, the most prestigious of Veronese red wines.
Guerrieri Rizzardi becomes the youngest Associate of the Amarone Families, although its wine history is among the most ancient in the Valpolicella region with the Counts Rizzardi acquiring Pojega estate in Negrar as early as 1649. The marriage, in 1913, of Carlo Rizzardi to Giuseppina Guerrieri – whose Bardolino estate dated back to the XV century – brought about the Guerrieri Rizzardi of today, merging the two historic estates. The first label under the name Guerrieri Rizzardi appeared in 1914.
Since then, the Rizzardi family have developed the company through continuous improvements in the vineyard and in the cellar, to become a producer of complex wines, wines directly linked to the land of origin. The continued aim is to improve the work done in the vineyards and the cellar, allowing ever greater expression of the vineyards in the wines. The company at the same time keeps a clear eye on the future with the goal of protecting and furthering the position of Amarone in the world of wine – a goal shared with the other associates of the Amarone Families.
The entrance of Guerrieri Rizzardi to the association further consolidates this select group of companies dedicated to the enhancement of Amarone, a symbol of Veronese excellence.
