Cantina Colli Ripani: 'Wine is an Art'

Cantina Colli Ripani: 'Wine is an Art' | Wines and People |

La Cantina dei Colli Ripani ( was started in 1969 by an initial group of 100 growers near the town of Ripatransone in the southern part of the region of Le Marche on the Adriatic Coast of Italy. The first wine production came in 1977. Today, Cantina Colli Ripani is made up of approximately 400 growers with 850 hectares of vineyards on which are grown a variety of wines. From these vineyards Cantina Colli Ripani produces about 1 million bottles of red, white and rosé wine per year.
Cantina Colli Ripani's Linea Colli Ripani represents the company's more reasonably priced every day wines while the Linea Pharus is its more elegant offerings. On a sunny spring afternoon we visited Cantina Colli Ripani where Signorina Edvige "Eddy" Cossignani, the cellar manager, hosted our tasting.
