For 200 years, we have been producing exceptional wines in Northern Italy
The Milanese have a secret, but not for long…
Our Rossi family farms in Pavia produce wines that the Milanese are keen to keep for themselves. We, however, have made it our mission to also send them out to the world. You may not know these specific wines, as they traditionally have remained in Italy (Croatina, Sangue di Guida, Buttafuoco, and lively Bonarda among others), but you definitely won’t be disappointed.
The origin of the Rossi family vineyard dates to the beginning of the 1800’s in Rovescala, which has been cultivating grapes for over 800 years.
The origin of our family vineyard dates to the beginning of the 1800's in Rovescala (PV), an area which has been cultivating grapes for over 800 years. Count Anselmo first cultivated and produced his wine in 1192 and sold it to the nobility. Five generations of Rossi’s have toiled the land, each one adding his own expertise, creating the successful enterprise that Rossi Vino is today.
Oltrepò Pavese is one of the largest wine growing regions of Italy, much larger than the far better known Franciacorta region. It is in fact the wine producing area of Milan. Wine farmers here have never marketed their product outside the region, let alone internationally. Rossi Vino is now exporting quality wine to the world.
Within each bottle of our wine, there are cultural, traditional, social and historical factors that reflect the characteristics of the terroir.
The Rossi family vineyard is situated in Oltrepò Pavese which is an area of the Province of Pavia, just south of Milan in the north-west Italian region of Lombardy. It is about 60 km (37 miles) from Milan and 100 km (62 miles) from Genoa. Rossi Vino offers a variety of wines grown from indigenous grapes, including red, white, and rosé, still and sparkling, as well as dry and sweet. Rossi wines are aged in stainless steel tanks, barriques, and oak barrels.
