«Rivera is one of the great estates in Italy.
The estate excels with their reds, which are not only gorgeous in absolute terms, but also exceedingly fairly priced. … Rivera makes wines that capture the exuberance that Puglia is capable of, while maintaining a gorgeous sense of structure. Readers who want to discover the wines of Puglia would do well to start with Rivera.»

A glance at the map is enough to understand the importance of its history.
A bridge, in the midst of the Mediterranean, between the East and the West. A land trod, over the centuries, by a vast range of peoples and cultures, whose heritage remains there in the testimony of art, language, and popular customs. Here is where the vine arrived, from nearby Greece. And from here spread the culture of wine, to all of Europe. And here, with the harvesting of each cluster, the fruits are gathered in of a many-centuried tradition of quality.
