intro background

As a top international wine producer, Italy has taken its place among the world’s best. The country’s finest reds come from the Piedmont region, where the Nebbiolo wine grape grows all over.

Italy | Émilie-Romagne


Picture it, Emilia-Romagna, 1950: A group of vintners band together to form the Cantine Cooperative. Within fifteen years their Riunite Lambrusco hits the US market. Ten years later, it is the number one imported wine in America.

The Story of Riunite's Runaway Success

While cult TV ad campaign’s like “Riunite on Ice…That’s Nice” helped fuel the public craze for Riunite, the continued prosperity of their Lambrusco wine comes down to its appealing taste. Riunite Lambrusco is a soft, fruity red sparkling wine with a seductively sweet finish. The vineyards are situated in the same verdant corner of northern Italy famous for such culinary treasures as Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, balsamic vinegar, and, prosciutto di Parma. Riunite is Italy’s largest wine exporter; respected through-out the world for their commitment to the highest standards of production quality. They were the first European winery to be certified ISO 9002 and ISO 14001 – guaranteeing stringent quality control at every stage of wine production from the arrival of grapes at the winery to shipment of the bottled, packaged wine.
