Riboli Family Wines Launches Riboli Estates Group to Drive California Estate Portfolio

100+ Years of Winemaking Tradition Takes Family Owned Wines to a New Level Riboli Estates Group; a Long Time in The Making

On the coattails of our success with Stella Rosa, our popular and much in-demand imported Italian wine portfolio, it was imperative to spotlight the growing success of our estate grown wines.

Introducing Riboli Estates Group, a new division dedicated to our portfolio of ultra-premium and luxury wine brands sourced from our estate vineyards in Paso Robles, Monterey and Napa Valley.

The Riboli Estates Group portfolio includes San Simeon, Maddalena, Opaque, Riboli Family Vineyard, Windstream, and our latest addition to the family, Highlands 41.

The Riboli Estates Group consists of:

•             Estate Grown Wine

•             Certified Sustainable Winery & Vineyards

•             Family Owned since 1917

In 1986, we purchased our first piece of land in Rutherford, Napa Valley, then continued to purchase land in Monterey and more recently invested in acquiring and planting new vineyards in the highly desired Paso Robles region. Today, our family owns over 1,000 planted vineyard acres in California – which are 100% sustainably grown in Paso Robles and Monterey – from these prestigious wine regions.

Come visit us at the Riboli Family Winemaking & Event Center, a state-of-the-art, sustainably certified, energy efficient winery and event center in Paso Robles, designed with the very latest sustainable winemaking technology that shows our family’s commitment, not only to creating fine wines, but to preserving natural resources. It’s entirely powered by solar panels and recycles 100% of all water used.

“From ground to glass, maintaining control of our estate-based wines is essential to the sustainability of our family business. Our tremendous viticultural and production investments behind these wines play a critical role with the development of this new division.” – Anthony Riboli, fourth-generation vintner

Initially dubbed “Project X,” the significant enhancements to our infrastructure and investment in a dedicated marketing and sales teams, allows consumers and distributor partners alike to further explore our award-winning wines within this new division, Riboli Estates Group.

 “These remarkable wines allow us to remain forward thinking, all with the intent of setting up everyone involved in this new division for success.” – Paul Hecht, National Sales Manager

What Our Distributor Partners Are Saying

“We are excited about the creation of the Riboli Estates Group and the dedication between our two teams. This dedication gives RNDC the ability to utilize our best-in-class fine wine organization focusing on top tier estate-grown wines like these, while not losing focus on Stella Rosa.  We applaud The Riboli Family for expanding their reach into fine wine and investing in premium growing areas that will benefit their future generations.”Tom Cole, President & CEO, Republic National Distributing Company/Young’s

“With a dedicated team, everyone is aligned on the same objectives and they are able to share information more seamlessly and effectively to a broader salesforce. As Riboli’s distributor, this means we are crystal clear on what we have to accomplish with their fine wine portfolio and then we can move faster and smarter in the marketplace to sell their brands.” – Wayne Chaplin, CEO Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits

Delish -The Perfect Mimosa with Stella Rosa

One of the biggest cocktail hacks out there is getting a liquor or wine with a flavor that goes with whatever drink you’re making. I am telling you, your Bloody Marys will forever be changed when you add in cucumber vodka, your spiked lemonades could benefit from a little citrus-flavored liquor, and your mimosas will be all the better from adding this orange-flavored sparkling moscato. This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Instagrammer @aldi.mademedoit spotted this at her local Aldi and said it literally glowed on the shelf, so obviously she had to buy it. This unique moscato is actually the Stella Rosa Imperiale Orange Moscato, which the brand’s website describes as a beverage “full of sass, pizzazz, and that ‘you don’t mess with me’ type of attitude.” Love that for her.

If you love flavors of “orange, lemon, orange blossom, and peach,” then this is the drink for you. And, hey, doesn’t that sound like all the flavors we want in a mimosa or any other sweet brunch drink? Um, yeah! Pick yourself up a bottle of this so you can spend your long Fourth of July weekend with a totally leveled-up cocktail in your hands.

In case your Aldi or local wine store doesn’t happen to have this exact one in stock, commenters let us in on the fact that Stella Rosa has all sorts of other deliciously flavored wines like sparkling rosé moscato and grapefruit rosé. Let’s be real, when it comes to these flavors, it’s really hard to go wrong!
