Associazione Viticoltori Varesini Vi.Va.

Via Porto della Torre 18 • 21010 Golasecca (Va)


The "Vini Varesini" Vi.Va. Association was founded in the autumn of 2008 with the desire to safeguard the territory and agricultural production in the Varese area.

Small and medium-sized local wineries have joined together, animated by the desire to create wines of excellence with 'ancient' and 'natural' flavours, which reflect in their organoleptic characteristics the peculiarities of the territory. To do this, they have for some years now resumed wine production from Merlot, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Shiraz, Traminer and Chardonnay grapes.

A convinced and unwavering commitment, which on 11 October 2005 obtained the IGT certification of 'Vino dei Ronchi Varesini': an important recognition of the typicality and quality of the local wine, as well as a decisive step for the development of wine production in Varese.

The 'Vini Varesini' mark that you will find on the bottles is a guarantee that the wines of the associated producers are 100% from the territory of the province of Varese from cultivation to production.

Cantina Torrerossa - Via Piave, 13 - Travedona-Monate (VA)

Their project to recover viticulture in Varese began in 2011 with the precise aim of enhancing and protecting the territory, a heritage to be preserved for future generations, through the cultivation of wine grapes using organic methods and biodynamic practices. In Varese, the city of lakes, in their vineyards and cellar they work historical vines such as Nebbiolo and Merlot and innovative ones such as Bronner and Solaris (PIWI vines): the latter have the characteristic of naturally resisting fungal diseases. 

Tastings are available at the Travedona-Monate location.

Their project began with agronomic research that led them to firmly believe that the Varese area, with its cool climate, is well suited to the production of grapes for sparkling wine bases. The varieties cultivated are Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Meunier, with which they make Metodo Classico sparkling wines. The only exception is a small vineyard of Traminer Aromatico, with which they produce a still white wine.
