Indigenous Grapes. Indigenous Wines.

Giorgio Rivetti talks about INDIGENOUS wines

Italy has an important viticultural heritage and is home to thousands of native grape varieties. Our goal with the INDIGENOUS portfolio is to showcase these unique varietals, as well as the distinctive regional terroirs in which they thrive.

Founded in 2006, INDIGENOUS Selections represents a collection of carefully selected Italian wineries that produce the finest and most authentic Italian wines.

With our expertise and significant presence in Piedmont and Tuscany, our portfolio includes a thoughtful selection of the very best wineries from these regions, as well as estates from Campania, Veneto, and Sicily.

Our mission is to showcase some of Italy’s most captivating winemakers who produce outstanding, terroir driven wines from their respective regions.  It remains our goal to provide our customers, as well as Italian wine enthusiasts, wines that truly honor indigenous Italian grape varieties and Italian winemaking.

Our portfolio currently includes: La Spinetta (Piemonte and Casanova), Contratto, BiancaVigna, Rocca del Principe, Malvirà, E. Pira by Chiara Boschis, Cocito, Cottanera, VKA Vodka, Tenuta Santa Maria, Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona, and our most recent addition Ronco dei Tassi.

The portfolio is completed by a selection of INDIGENOUS label wines. Each of these wines has been hand-selected by Giorgio Rivetti and offers an interesting and authentic Italian wine experience, specifically with “by the glass” placements in mind.
