The De Corato family, which together with the Gancia family owns the Rivera winery - one of the few Apulian wineries that can compete with the best at the national level - has been at the forefront of regional viticulture since the beginning of the century, promoting and influencing its development as much as possible. After the Second World War, experiments with newly planted vineyards, in which non-indigenous varieties such as Sauvignon or Pinot Bianco were planted, as well as the bottling of wines from the yields of its own vineyards, heralded the modern development of the winery.

In the meantime, Carlo De Corato had joined Sebastiano, the founder of the winery, and continued on the path with the same motivation as his father. Only recently, next to the old winery in the Rivera district, a new winery with considerable capacity was built, which is state of the art. The vineyards in the municipalities of Andria, Minervino, Murge and Corato are located in the Castel del Monte production area, which takes its name from the octagonal castle of the Hohenstaufen king Frederick II.

The Rivera range includes several varieties of this DOC, including the new Terre al Monte line. It offers wines made from Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Aglianico, the latter in particular could follow in the footsteps of Falcone, one of the most important Pugliese red wines of recent years.
