Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. Their aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties.
All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica’s winemaking team of Claudio Manera, Lella Burdese and Carlo Manera – assisted by Boutinot’s Tony Brown MW. Production is 12 million bottles annually and the wines are exported to more than 20 countries worldwide.
Grapes are sourced from a range of private growers and cooperatives, many of whom they have long term relationships with, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.
