Green battle

The warm season is on its way and you can already see the first buds of early ripening varieties among the vineyards.

The time has also come this year to hang up the sprinklings to fight the moth, according to the consolidated rules of “mating distraction”.

Starting from 2015, we have decided to extend this sustainable technique to about 70 hectares of our property and now more than half of our vineyards are protected against this parasite. The sprinkling of a pheromone, in fact, slows down the reproduction of this insect effectively.

Our goal is to protect all our vineyards within a few years in order to drastically reduce the use of pesticides.

About Us

Four hundred years amongst vineyards and an infinite passion for wine. The history of the Armani family and that of viticulture in the Adige Valley, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, have been evolving together, without interruption, for more than 4 centuries. Today  “Albino Armani Viticoltori dal 1607” means territory, or rather territories. The historical property in Dolcè, in the Adige Valley in the province of Verona, is one of 3 wineries located in the region Veneto: one other is to be found in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico area, and one  in the province of Treviso, in San Polo di Piave, where our biodynamic wines are produced. Two more wineries are located in the regions Trentino and Friuli. All five wineries watch over their territories, vinifying the grapes of the surrounding vineyards. In each of them the common thread is a terroir reflecting its specific particular character in the wines springing from its soil. The headquarters remain in Dolcè, where the “Conservatoria”, a project for safeguarding local grape varieties in danger of extinction, can be visited.
