1925 is the year when everything started. Mr. Leone Righetti, great-grandfather of the actual President, has a vision of the charming Valpolicella County which is a great place for his farm to grow vines for winemaking other than producing olive oil, milk, fresh fruits, vegetables, meat.
In 1964 Giovanni Righetti and his wife Dalia have purchased some plots of land in Sion District and close to the small town of Arce’ di Pescantina where they have settled the family business. That is the real milestone of the actual Company. The vineyards are now part of a fantastic anphitheater of hills on the north bank of the Adige river.
In the mid 90s the Family buys 10 acres of vineyards more in the Valpolicella Classica district to increase the production of the great red wines such as Amarone della Valpolicella Classico and Ripasso della Valpolicella. At the same time the Righetti Family grows developing more important wine production with cellar departments better organized.
In 1999 Righetti decided to buy a unique vineyard located at Costa delle Corone District up in the hill. In the years this vineyard became the nurse of the Winery top grape selection. Costa delle Corone vineyards, located at the top of the high hill overlooking the Valpolicella Classica, grow the finest grapes.
The 2000 is the year zero to harvest grapes, commitment, dedication. We bottled our first bottle of Amarone, it was vintage 1997. That was big time for Righetti Family which also started to face the international wine market. Still today the Family remember such event with pride.
In 2012 the Righetti Family dream come true and the Winery opens the door to cultural and social event in order to blend together all the ingredients of a fantastic territory such as the Valpolicella.
The 2013 sees a remarkable improvement to qualify the Family’s agricultural properties building a new solar panel plant able to supply over the 50% of the annual operations need. With that upgrading the Company has met the perfect balance of the environment and the vineyards.
In 2014 the Righetti youngest generation is in full control of all the operations and it develops new marketing strategies as well as more international markets. On the agricoltural side the acquisition of several vineyards in the Lugana District has completed the range of wines.
In 2015 the Righettis increased the private functions and corporate events business. The Monteci banquet hall and ball room next to the Cellar is a perfect scenography for any celebration and the great wines are the best link to the big audience.
With 2018 vintage another dream come true. The process of sustainability started in 2015 comes to final conclusion and all the vineyards (more than 200 ha) of the Family are fully converted into organic. This is a new and exciting program for the future.
