Luigi Righetti

Located in Valgatara, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region near Verona, the Luigi Righetti estate is a small, family run winery. Since 1909, when Angelo Righetti first earned a reputation as an outstanding winemaker, the family has focussed on producing quality wines offering extremely good value. Righetti's wines exhibit an exceptional balance between fruit, wood, acidity and alcohol. The result is a range of wines that have good ageing potential, but that are well suited to immediate enjoyment.

The current winemaker, Gianmaria Righetti, is the fifth generation of the Righetti family to carry on the family wine-making tradition. Gianmaria's father, Luigi, took over this same role back in the 1940s, and he was the first in the family to consider increasing the estate’s production above the level of local demand. Today, he is still active in the estate's day to day operation. Gianmaria, who took over winemaking responsibilities in 1985, has broadened the range to include single vineyard offerings and wines with great international appeal.
