WHERE ARE RICCADONNA SPARKLING WINES PRODUCED

Our unique sparkling wines

Our sparkling wines are born in the Prosecco and Langhe hills. Both are lands with a vocation for wine.

Veneto is a special area, with its alluvial soils, which benefits from a mild and gentle climate, ideal for producing extraordinary sparkling wines.

Piedmont has a long history of sparkling wine production: the soils of the Langhe are lovingly dedicated to the cultivation, particularly of vineyards, whose production of wines has made this land famous throughout the world.

Our Sparkling Wines and Prosecco production process

The Riccadonna sparkling wines range includes high quality-certified variants – Prosecco D.O.C., Asti D.O.C.G., Ruby, Chardonnay, Moscato Rosè and also the Prosecco D.O.C. Biologico Range – that are produced using specific techniques and taking specific timing to deliver their own unique taste experience.

HARVESTING
