Then started raining and the temperature became cooler as usually in September and the Valdadige took advantage of this change.

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.
