Our company is located in a place with centuries-old winemaking tradition called Frascati, within the Castelli Romani Park. In particular, the historical name of the small independent valley where we operate is Pentima dei frati.
The name Ribelà derives from a dialectal term used in Monte Porzio Catone “ribelare” which means to cover the newly planted vines with earth. The gesture of hilling the land around the vine with a hoe or a spade not only is the symbol of a new beginning to us, but also of continuous renewal of what is meant to be a great wine-growing history to be taken care of. In fact, we believe that a good story and a suitable terroir can only lead to quality wines.
We believe in integrated agriculture as a result of the symbiotic relationship between the terroir and the people who live there, observe it and listen to it. Wine will consequently be the reflection of this continuous silent dialogue.
Finally, we chose a balloon as our symbol. A vehicle that, in addition to offering you a different point of view on the world, allows you to move towards the desired direction only in accordance with the weather conditions. In our way of making wine, the relationship between will and contingency is deemed inseparable.
