The vineyards surrounding the company are different, the most "old" is the vigna Baek dating back to ' 70. The vineyard called "bomb" is valuable because it consists exclusively of strains of Pugnitello. Other vines that characterise the wine production of Ripa are the Trebbiano, Malvasia, Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorinoand Saint Columbanus . All wines are available for purchase at the point of sale of the company.

The eight acres of olive groves are another source of great pride for William and Judy. Most of the olive trees date from before 1900 and among these trees are cultivated vegetables, herbs and fruit trees.

The uniqueness of the vine the Pugnitello


In the '70s, the Ripa Verde farm conducted in-depth research into native vines to prevent their extinction. The Pugnitello excelled among those to be vinified in purity, for its very particular agronomic, morphological and analytical characteristics. Even today this vine gives great satisfaction: the wine produced with Pugnitello grapes from the company has a very intense purplish red color, a complex aroma and a large and well-structured body
