ProWein is celebrating 25 years and from what started as a small gathering of producers and buyers has grown by leaps and bounds to become the world’s ‘must attend’ trade fair for the wine and spirits industry. Based in the huge Messe exhibition centre in Dusseldorf, ProWein’s  program is impressive, with masterclasses, major tastings and meetings on the latest developments, trends and innovations in the industry. 

Guerrieri Rizzardi will be there once again showcasing the full range of our wines, the line-up includes many new vintages such as our exciting 2018 Bardolino Chiaretto – a different take, the 2018 is a pale coloured, aromatic rosé that is sure to win new fans. Another highlight will be several vintages of the award winning Calcarole Amarone and Villa Rizzardi Amarone.

Come and visit us at Hall 16, Stand 60.

We’ll join the Gambero Rosso USA tour in San Francisco for the Tre Bicchieri tasting on Tuesday 5th March, one of the most awaited events in the wine calendar year.

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!
On Sunday 27th January from 10:30 to 19:00, Guerrieri Rizzardi will attend the Treviso Slow Wine 2019, hosted at the Best Western Premier BHR Hotel Treviso. Wines from Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Slovenia included in the Slow Wine guide 2019 will be on tasting, along with gastronomic excellences prepared by food artisans selected by Slow food. 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 !

 

Wine and food lovers are gearing up for the 27th edition of the Merano Wine Festival. The highly anticipated annual appointment with wines of excellence will take place from the 9th to the 13th of November at the palatial Merano Kurhaus. Guerrieri RIzzardi will show the recently double award winning – Tre Bicchieri and Cinque Grappoli – Villa Rizzardi Amarone Classico 2013 as well as the Tre Bicchieri finalist Pojega Ripasso 2016.

Come and visit us at table 254 in the Pavillon des Fleurs.
