Rizzi farmhouse and its vineyards on the two sides of the hill (Cru Rizzi) and Cru Nervo (a four-hectare plot under the village of Treiso) they are the starting point, the solid and secure base on which the foundations of the Company lay.
Afterwards, the commitment and the desire to grow came, always remaining linked to their own Territory and to the philosophy of work that never becomes purely business, but maintains the family character of those who choose to carry on a "human scale" activity "and tie it to the purest and deepest feelings. These are years of effort and acquisitions, which lead the Rizzi Winery to expand: in 1984 with the addition of the Boito farmhouse and the adjacent Vigna Boito, still inside the Cru Rizzi, and in 1997 with the purchase of the Manzola farmhouse and its vineyards.
Between 2004 and 2018 new acquisitions were made: three hectares of the vineyard in the Cru Pajorè, 5 hectares of Podere Stella at Neviglie and finally 1.5 hectares in the Cru Giacone and 3 hectares of the Cru Bricco di Neive. Ernesto Dellapiana works to improve his company both from a quantitative and a qualitative point of view. And so the dream becomes reality and the Rizzi Wine Company reaches over 44 total hectares divided between Nebbiolo da Barbaresco (the most substantial part), Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato, Freisa, Chardonnay and Pinot Nero.
Over the years, Ernesto and his wife Lia are joined by their two children: Jole, graduated in educational sciences, with specialization in the field of marketing, administration and public relations, who deals with the commercial and management part of the winery and the sales network, and Enrico, graduated in Viticulture and Oenology at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Turin, engaged in the technical management of the farm and the winery, following all the problems of production, trade, sales network and export of wines.
