Located on the historic Matidilche Hills in Emilia, between Parma and Reggio Emilia, the Venturini Baldini family estate is synonymous with tradition in the hospitality and production of sparkling wines from Emilia. With an approach that fully respects nature and its ecosystem, a strong link to the territory and its tradition, and a spirit of innovation, we make organic wines that represent the diversity of Emilia.
Roncolo 1888 is the resort of Tenuta Venturini Baldini, a destination for all those visitors who peep into Emilia, and a pleasant stop where pleasant food and wine, historical, cultural and landscape aspects coexist. Our estate, in addition to being part of a splendid natural landscape, is enriched by the historical heritage to which it belongs.
Built on Matildic foundations, the current Villa Manodori dates back to the early 1500s, and still today recalls the ancient glories of the noble families which it was home to over time, from the Marquis Fontanelli, to the Galliani counts, the Ancini counts, and finally in the 800 residence of the Marquises Manodori.
The history of our company is closely linked to that of our estate which dates back to the 16th century. However, it was in 1976 with the Venturini Baldini family that wine production began: an innovative production in full harmony with nature.
Today the estate is managed by the Prestia family who in 2015 relaunched the historic Reggio brand with the help of the oenologist Carlo Ferrini. The 32 hectares of vineyards owned by the family are entirely cultivated organically.
