Vanni Lusetti – Winemaker

vanni“I was born here in Italy’s beautiful Reggio Emilia and I’ve been making wine for most of my life. …As I see it, there should be no snobbery involved in either making or drinking the wine. That’s why I put a lifetime of expertise to work every day creating wine that people like me can enjoy not only at the table, but while reading, listening to music, or cheering for the local team. Our region is proud of a winemaking tradition dating back over 2,000 years.” – Chief Winemaker, Vanni Lusetti.

Chief Winemaker Vanni Lusetti is a native of the Emilia region, the heartland of Lambrusco, known for its fine food and thriving agriculture. Having been raised in an area with such a strong heritage of agriculture and such an abundance of vineyards, Vanni soon discovered his passion for winemaking. He pursued his oenological studies and earned his degree in Winemaking at the famed
university in Conegliano Veneto. During his tenure as a winemaker after graduating, he has continued his studies in Winemaking and Winegrowing, as well as in Marketing and International Business.

Vanni joined Cantine Riunite in the 1970’s and after just a few short years, owing to his passion for his job and dedication to creating great wines, he quickly achieved the position of Chief Winemaker. In 2003, Mr. Lusetti was also appointed to the position of General Manager of Cantine Cooperative Riunite.

More than just a job, winemaking has always been a passion for Vanni, and after many years, he still has the same enthusiasm and devotion. His purpose is to make and sell wines that are approachable and enjoyable with all types of food. Lambrusco and Trebbiano Moscato with their soft and pleasant frizzante style are perfect for this mission!
