Vigneti di Ettore is a family owned estate founded in 2011 and run by Ettore Righetti, historical figure of Valpolicella, together with his grandson Gabriele, oenologist.
The 5 hectares of vineyards stand on very well exposed plots overlooking Negrar valley, within the Valpolicella Classica zone. Ettore and Gabriele grow indigenous varieties, like Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, also preserving some minor native grapes like Oseleta, Molinara and Pelara.
The vineyard management is strictly environment friendly.
The total average production is 40,000 bottles, only by owned grapes.
The aim of this estate is to produce “classical” wines that can express the character of these indigenous varieties and of this very special zone. Therefore, the practices in the cellar are not invasive, thankful to a very careful use of wood. Ettore and Gabriele prefer wines that are fresh, able to age for a long time.
