Azienda Agricola Rinaldi Vini is located on the hills of Alto Monferrato, close to Acqui Terme, in the heart of one of the most precious areas of southern Piedmont. This family business was founded in 1961 by Oreste Rinaldi, and is run today by his son, Andrea. The family produces wine from their vineyards located in a particularly desirable area, with a favorable microclimate and a perfect southwestern exposure.

Their single vineyard Bricco Cardogno, planted to Moscato, measures 2.5 hectares (6.75 acres) and was planted in the early 1960's by Andrea Rinaldi's grandfather. It is located 240- 300 m above sea level, with limestone (tufa) soil. All grapes are hand harvested with extreme care - quality starts in the vineyard. The single vineyard Bricco Rioglio is planted with Brachetto grapes and is limestone based with 15-year-old vines (Bricco is a "tea cup" in local dialect).
