Cantine Riunite&CIV, Italy

In 1950, Italy has just come out of the war. There is a general desire to start over, so a group of vignerons from Emilia gathers round a table and decide to look to the future. Thus, the union of nine co-operative wineries in the Province of Reggio Emilia produced the Cantine Cooperative Riunite. In 1960, the year of Fellini’s “Dolce Vita”, the economic boom also has a positive effect on Cantine Cooperative Riunite, and within six years it double its capacity. In 1969, Neil Armstrong lands on the moon and Riunite’s Lambrusco lands in the United States of America for the first time. In the early 80s Italy wins the soccer World Cup and Riunite produces more than one million hectoliters of bottled wine, becoming the third largest wine group worldwide. The history of Riunite is based on growth: from the union of a few co-operatives, with an initial capital of only 9000 lire, to today’s Company distribution to supplying more than 70 countries on all continents.

The territory of Emilia Romagna has always been well-suited due to its geographical layout, to the cultivation of vines and the production of ideal grapes for winemaking.

Today 12 varieties are cultivated. So, in addition to the different types of Lambrusco (Grasparossa, Marani, Sorbara, Salamino, Maestri, Oliva, Viadanese, Foglia Frastagliata, etc.) there are all the typical grapes typical of the Emilian and Italian traditions that are part of Cantine Riunite’s range, such as Uva d’Oro, Grechetto Gentile, the aromatic Malvasia di Candia and Merlot.

Our vineyards are located in the lands of Correggio, Campagnola, Argine, San Marino di Carpi, Sorbara, Canals, Castelfranco Emilia and Castecvetro di Modena. The bottling takes place in Treviso, Modena and Reggio Emilia.
