Welcome to INDIGENOUS !

  • What is new...

    Following the success of the Indigenous Private Label wines san/gio (100% Sangiovese) and gri/gio (100% Pinot Grigio) presented last year, we are thrilled to introduce six additional indigenous varieties to the lineup: bianco (Arneis), verdi (Verdicchio), Prosecco (Prosecco), barbera(Piemonte Barbera), nero (Nero d'Avola), and nebbio (Nebbiolo d'Alba).

    The concept is simple – real wines made from some of Italy's most interesting and extraordinary local grape varieties. Three whites and three reds representing important Italian wine regions from north to south. Faithful to the philosophy we embrace for all our wines, quality is exceptional, and each wine has been personally selected by Giorgio Rivetti. The focus is on small production, family-owned vineyards and an expression of genuine character and terroir, a combination that ensures true wines conveying a unique personality and sense of place.

    The Private Label wines are the response to those in search of authenticity, something real and different from the seemingly infinite offering of anonymous New World Cabernets, Merlots and Chardonnays. An exceptionally approachable price point makes these wines outstanding selections for "by the glass" placements, offering an accessible taste of the very finest of Italy. The variety of options, ranging from crisp, sparkling Prosecco to rich, peppery Nero d'Avola presents an ideal choice for an aperitivo or happy hour as well as an accompaniment to any meal. The label design reflects the spirit behind the wines, simple yet distinct.
