Caterina and Barbara Candoni De Zan

The day is coming to a close, it has been intense in juggling all the commitments… that is why first we suggest taking 10 minutes to do absolutely nothing! 🙂


Next…Need inspiration?  Put on your favorite music and now to the best part, set aside some time to do something fun!


With this in mind we have created our new Ricco Wine Cocktail Recipe book, thinking about creating fun memories and new sweet wine cocktail recipes to share  with your family and friends.


How it all came to life:


Growing up in a family of winemakers, my sister Barbara and I were struck with inspiration one summer day. We were enjoying the company of friends and family on the patio of our beach house, sharing a bottle of our Candoni Moscato. I was suddenly hit with an idea that would make this experience even more enjoyable. My sister and I left the group  momentarily to experiment in the kitchen with the sweet, rich flavors of peaches and mango, adding these ripe summer fruits to our Moscato wine.  It was the perfect sweet beach wine, and our guests agreed!


When we surprised our guests with this unique blend, everyone really enjoyed what we had created and said “Che Ricco Che Buono!” (how rich and good). From that moment, an idea took root in our minds. We wanted to create even more sweet moments like the one we had stumbled upon at our beach house that pleasant afternoon.


Soon after that strike of genius, my sister and I worked closely with our winemakers to create a collection of the best sweet wine for beginners.  Created with all-natural fruit flavors, our sweet red and flavored Moscatos are easy to enjoy by themselves or mixed into sweet wine cocktails. Our Ricco Dolce, Ricco Mango Moscato, and Ricco Peach Moscato were the first to be introduced in our brand new Ricco collection. Our customers seemed to love the sweet wines we had created. Their enjoyment and support of our wines drove us to continue our endeavors. In the span of a few months, we released our Ricco Cherry Premium Moscato to this sweet wine collection.  Ricco Blueberry was introduced in summer 2021.


My sister and I wanted to share the sweet moments and new sweet wine cocktails we had created over the course of perfecting our Ricco collection. Our latest ebook, Tasty and Fun Inspired Ricco Cocktails, will help you find and preserve those sweet moments. We believe that there is no price for pleasant memories, which is why this ebook is free for anyone to download.
