Corte Riva Vineyards originated as a simple dinner conversation while having dinner with their families. The simple thought of starting their own label at the time was an immense feat that only few could attain. With the hopes of becoming triumphant, they had to endure the fierce competition in the wine industry. Nieves, Sales Manager of Corte Riva, has always been the driving force. She has been relentless from the beginning. The very thought of the idea of starting Corte Riva Vineyards motivated her to achieve her dream. Her unceasing love for her family, along with her full trust and confidence in her husband Lawrence, and her cousin Romel's ability to create exquisite, fine crafted boutique wines has paid off.
