Our Sequals vineyards … Greener and Greener!

As we already did in the Adige Valley, we started using the “Sexual Confusion” technique in our vineyards in Sequals, Friuli as well. In order to test this technique in the area of Grave in the Friuli region , three wineries have been selected this year by “Ersa”( Regional Institute for Agricultural Development in Friuli) and by the Consortium of DOC Friuli Grave wines and our winery was among them. The pheromone diffusers for mating disruption of moths , have

Our green mission is going on

On Thursday 20th February at Cantina Sociale in Rivalta (Adige Valley),we talked about the results of the “Sexual Confusion” tecnique that we, together with other vine growers of the area, have been testing in some of the Adige Valley vineyards during 2013. “Sexual Confusion” is a viticultural practice that aims at protecting the vineyards from some insects without the need to spray insecticides but using a less dangerous method instead, consisting is spreading a pheromone, the same which is produced

Irrigation in Valdadige

abstract and translation by Egle Capilupi – In the Adige valley, the vinegrowers don’t go on vacation! The drought has been going on for several months and I would like you to think about our farmers struggling among the vineyards waiting for the rain. We wish a nice mid-August holiday to all, especially to people writing and talking about  wine, to consumers and to farmers that even tomorrow will be here, taking care of their grapes.

Let’s reduce pesticides

abstract and translation by Egle Capilupi – Today after several years of research in co-operation with the Agrarian Institute of San Michele all’Adige in Trentino, at the Albino Armani winery we are convinced that the best way to fight the insect called” Lobesia Botrana” in our vineyards, is using a technique which kind of disorients the male insect by spreading pheromone, a substance simulating the same smell produced by the female, in order to prevent the insect from  mating.

About Us

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.
