We are delighted to announce the opening of the 3rd Guerrieri Rizzardi Wine Shop!

In a converted, old stone building, flanked by olive trees, we are sure it will become a destination for wine lovers visiting our area. There is always wine on tasting so come and visit us!


It was an amazing month of May for our Bardolino Chiaretto 2018. Shortly after its launch on the market, it won two important recognitions, the first from Italy and the second from the United States.

The new vintage of our Chiaretto was selected as one of the 100 Best Italian Rosés by the Slow Wine Guide .

It was then chosen as the Editors’ Choice for the summer issue of Wine Enthusiast, one of the most influential American wine magazines, with the outstanding score of 90 points.

Summer could not have started better, so enjoy the sun with a glass of our delicious Chiaretto !
