In the late 1940’s, Sebastiano de Corato realized the the enormous viticultural potential of his family’s estate in the Castel del Monte region of Puglia and founded Azienda Vinicola Rivera. Now run by his grandsons Sebastiano and Marco, Rivera has become the benchmark of Puglia quality wine production. Using modern viticultural and oenological practices while maintaining a deep respect for natural processes, they carry on the family tradition producing wines that eloquently express the intense yet elegant character of the land and its native grape varieties.
