About the Winery:
In 1920, Abel, the grandfather of the current owners, purchased a natural amphitheatre vineyard from Count Balbi Valier. This beautiful site with fantastic potential was the ideal place to start out afresh, with the help of his son Adriano. Abel had the inspired intuition of separating this vineyard from the others, due to its different characteristics.
Carrying on the family tradition, Adriano Adami continued in his father’s footsteps, making a name for the winery’s quality Prosecco on the local market. The 1980s saw the arrival of the third generation, with the newly qualified oenologists Armando and Franco Adami, combining family traditions with specialization and technology. With a modern winemaking and sparkling wine production facility, the brand moved onto new markets and acquired a solid reputation.
