After the successful tour in USA and Asia, the Gambero Rosso comes back to Europe and brings the Tre Bicchieri tasting event to Bordeaux, showing the top wines rated in Vini d’Italia 2019 plus a glimpse of what might get top rating in the 2020 guide, the ‘Anteprima’.

The Grand Tasting will take place on Wednesday, May 15, at the Tasting Lounge, hall 2 of the Palais del l’Atlantique.

We will be present with a strong lineup: our Villa Rizzardi Amarone 2013, Tre Bicchieri winner 2019, Pojega Ripasso 2016, Tre Bicchieri finalist, and Munus 2016. So if you are attending Vinexpo this May we would love to see you at the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri tasting!

 

The O’Briens wine festival has become, over the years, one of the most exciting highlights of the Irish wine calendar. The spring fair will take place in Limerick on Thursday 9th May and in Dublin on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th.

As usual, it’s going to be an embarrassment of richness, with over 60 producers that are going to showcase almost 300 wines. The program is enhanced by Masterclasses that will give the chance to listen to the real people behind the bottles.

Guerrieri Rizzardi will be present showing at our tasting table the new vintages of several favourites, including the Bardolino Chiaretto Classico 2018 which has gotten a lot of attention in Europe and overseas.

 

Vinitaly, one of the biggest wine fairs in the world, has become, over the last few years, a structured series of events that lasts almost two weeks.

Vinitaly International Academy, the educating body whose goal is to form international Italian Wine Ambassadors, organized a tasting for its students at Bottega del Vino on Tuesday 2nd April with the Historical Families, that comprises Guerrieri Rizzardi. It was a great success, with students from all over the world enjoying Amarone Classico in one of the best restaurant of Verona.

Vinitaly and the City is starting on Friday 5th April with a rich program of tasting, concerts, dj sets and even yoga and wine sessions.

And then there is the proper fair, from Sunday 7th to Wednesday 10th April, with 130.000 visitors expected, 4.600 companies, tasting and masterclasses.

Guerrieri Rizzardi will be present at Hall8, stand L5, come and visit us to taste the new vintages of our wines !

 

The Rosé Revolution arrived once again at Lazise, the beautiful village on the shore of lake Garda, for the “Anteprima del Chiaretto”. Producers from every corner of the lake arrived to show they are serious about the Revolution, which champions the production of rosé wines with lighter colours and more floral notes.

The most important market for many is still Germany but  growth in northern Europe, USA and Canada has been exponential. An encouraging result, given that the competition is led by the  renowned pink wines from the South of France, Provence in particular.

Guerrieri Rizzardi was in Lazise to showcase the new Chiaretto Bardolino Classico 2018, for us this vintage has the ideal balance between our palest colour to date and the classic floral and refreshing style characteristic of dry rosé wine from lake Garda.

We will show our latest top awarded wine, Villa Rizzardi Amarone Classico 2013 along with Calcarole Amarone Classico 2011 – Tre Bicchieri winner in 2017 – and Pojega Ripasso 2016, Tre bicchieri finalist this year.

 

 

We will be present at the Consorzio del Bardolino and Chiaretto stand in San Francisco on Monday 4th March with the Slow Wine USA tour 2019.

The rosé from the eastern shore of the lake Garda has been receiving a lot of attention internationally in the last few years and for us this is a great opportunity to show our new vintage, Chiaretto 2018 to a keen audience.


First event of the New Year!

Don’t miss it !

Canada’s biggest daily newspaper just reviewed our 3 CRU Amarone Classico 2012. Here are the highly appreciative words of Beppi Crosariol, Wine and Spirits columnist of the Globe and Mail, that gave it an amazing 96 points :

“If one could use just a word to describe this mouth-filling red, it might be “delectable. Three words ? How about “Black Forest cake” ? That’s what this red tastes like, cherries and all. Smooth and velvety, it strikes remarkable poise for a monster that tips the scales at 16 per cent alcohol. Lavish and complex, it would be a good candidate for up to 10 more years in the cellar, though it would be smashing right now as an after-dinner alternative to whisky, brandy or rum, especially with cheese”.

We hope our friends in Ontario will fall in love with Beppi’s words….and our Amarone too !
