When cooperation means quality.


Just thirteen years old, they have already made their mark on the international scene by racking up prizes in the wine world’s most prestigious competitions. This is how Cantine Riondo, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Collis Veneto Wine Group cooperative consortium, opens the new year, enriching its family medal collection with precious awards.

What better spring breeze could have blown over the mountain that Cantine Riondo overlooks, Monte Riondo? That which brought the results of the Spring 2021 edition of MUNDUS VINI, the coveted international competition in which the wine elite compete, an ideal stage for promoting the quality and marketing of the best wines in the world. In addition to these, there are the awards obtained at the Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge, the competition that aims to promote quality wines representative of a terroir, the passion and expertise with which men and women cultivate the vineyard.


Gold medal winners at MUNDUS VINI:

  • RIONDO Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG 2017
  • CASALFORTE Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2017
  • RIONDO Pinot Grigio DOC 2020
  • CASALFORTE Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC 2020

Silver medal for:

  • CASALFORTE Prosecco DOC Extra Dry
  • CASALFORTE Corvina Veronese IGT 2019
  • CASALFORTE Ripasso della Valpolicella DOC

The International Gilbert & Gaillard challenge awarded:

  • RIONDO Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC 2020
  • CASALFORTE Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC 2020


Great results for the wines that represent the best of Veneto production in the world; Amarone, Pinot Grigio and Prosecco represent territories that have shaped the history of wine over the centuries, making Italy a reference point for quality viticulture.

“These awards acknowledge a business model that safeguards and reconciles winemaking tradition and process innovation, care for the territory and a commercial organisation capable of reaching over 60 countries,” comments General Manager Gianfranco Gambesi, “and they confirm that even a large cooperative group like the one we belong to can be the interpreter and promoter of a quality winemaking culture.”
