Pheromones win at Sequals

Mating disruption is getting good results in our winery in Sequals as well . The results of the survey carried out by Dr. Giorgio Malossini, from the Technical Research and Experimentation Service ERSA, and Dr. Carlo Bassanetti, Supervisor of the northern Italian Technical Support for Sexual Pheromones BIOGARD, were very satisfactory. 200 clusters from the eight hectares of vineyards dedicated to the mating disruption project were checked for the purpose of sampling the second generation of Eupoecilla ambiguella and Lobesia

Trapview, electronic delta trap for remote monitoring of moths

In our winery in Sequals, two electronic traps have been applied to control moths in the vineyards treated with the green technique called “sexual confusion”. The device takes daily pictures of the sticky plate with insect placed in the trap and sends them via GPRS connection to ERSA ( regional agency for rural development) in Pordenone. The device is self-sufficient in the field because it is powered by a battery that is charged with solar panels, fixed on a pole.

Our Sequals vineyards … Greener and Greener!

The pheromone diffusers for mating disruption of moths , have

A new vineyard of Pinot Grigio in our winery in Sequals

Soon after the last harvest, we started working on setting up a new vineyard of Pinot Grigio in our winery in Sequals.

We proceeded by tracking with satellite navigation,in order to place the irrigation system. After that, we started to prepare the soil. So far, we have been

Friuli in my eyes

by Caterina Cipriani – It was about one year ago, at the end of the harvest 2012, when I reached Sequals. This small village, just renowned for being the native place of the famous boxer Primo Carnera, perfectly matches the idea I had in my mind when I was at school: “ the universe in miniature”*. In Winter, while I was attending the third year of college studying  Viticulture and Oenology in Udine, I started exploring this territory together with my faithful

Harvest in Sequals, Friuli

abstract and translation by Egle Capilupi – The harvest has started in Friuli as well and in our winery in Sequals we are already working full steam. After struggling with a nasty drought, finally we picked the grapes. The same ritual has been repeating for thousands of years. And when our pickers take a break and sit around a table, they keep on talking about grapes and wine, in a word, about their lives.. Renata takes care of our young

About Us

About Us

Albino Armani winery is a working tradition that goes back in time. The first evidence of vineyard ownership was in 1607. Today, Albino Armani vineyards are located in three different Italian regions (Veneto, Trentino and Friuli) and they cover about 230 acres of land. In 1962, the municipality of Dolcè (Veneto) became the winery’s home base; it is located in the southern part of the Adige Valley, a glacial valley characterized by a strong identity. We have a strong bond with the territory where our grapevines grow. To preserve them, each day is a challenge for us and the risk of losing our produce is the guiding spirit that gives us the strength to keep doing our job. Our wines are the exact representation of where the grapes come from and in the same time, they describe their own territory of origin. For example, our white wines have fresh bouquet notes of white flowers, result of temperature fluctuations and constant ventilation typical of the Trentino land; and our red wines, on the other hand are original in character, fresh yet complex, result of the high altitude of the Valpolicella hills.
