Coordinating the elements of nature to resume the authentic method of wine production, exactly as in the past: a simple and natural goal, for which we set up the Dossi Retici company in 2000.

Cultivating the land in the least invasive way possible to produce a product with an inseparable link with the land from which it is born: for this reason, from vineyards planted by old masters during the 1920s, we have replaced the poles and dead plants because the vine, contrary to the most of the plant species, the more it ages, the better the quality of the wine.

From work in the open between the terraces of centenary vines to the most hidden in the cellars, wines with a unique personality are born, which speak of their history and their land: come and discover them, we will be happy to introduce you to our company.
