Giorgio Rivetti, who has been called one of Italy’s best winemakers, co-owns what is potentially the most acclaimed winery in Italy, La Spinetta, with his brothers Bruno and Carlo. Since it was begun by their father in 1977, the Rivetti brothers have expanded the winery to include over 400 acres of vineyards in the Italian wine countries of Piedmont and Tuscany. There, the brothers make some of the finest wines in Italy, particularly praised are their Barbaresco and Sangiovese varieties. Giorgio and his award-winning wines have been featured in numerous American magazines including Wine Spectator, Food & Wine and Travel & Leisure as well as German, Italian and Canadian publications. In addition to his gift for wine making, Giorgio is also an amateur chef and a champion equestrian. For more information on the Rivetti brother’s winery, visit
