The testimony of an area and voice of a community
Four hundred years of winegrowing, with infinite passion for the finished product. In the Adige Valley, the history of the Armani family and that of viticulture have been going on together since December 7th, 1607. It is a collective story, which from that moment onwards bears the name of a family. From the constant study of the history and origins of a place and its wines, to researching the local autochthonous varieties, the recent history of the Albino Armani winery stands for respect for the territory and its people. We believe that research is the process necessary if one wishes to improve the land, and create a product which constitutes its identity. Today we continue our quest, imagining an increasingly sustainable future, where the quality of our product is the perfect consequence of knowledge and responsibility. Because tradition alone is not enough.
Four centuries that have become tradition, a tradition that every day teaches us method, respect and tenacity. And it stimulates me to still grow. With the conviction that mine is the most beautiful job in the world, that pushing my hands into the earth to make wine, is the best thing I could ever do in life. I am inspired by a simple and at the same time powerful thought: to respect the land and the places where I grew up, where since I was a child, together with my father, I played among wine barrels and vineyards, where I learned that life is mine … and life is wine. Then, over the years, I learned to love and respect other territories, especially Valpolicella and the Marca Trevigiana (in Veneto), as well as the winegrowing region of Friuli. Gradually these territories have also become “mine”.
