The winery was founded in 1920 by Abele Adami, when he bought his first vineyard, Vigneto Giardino (at that time Riva Zardin). In 1933 he was invited to the “Mostra mercato dei vini tipici d’Italia” (a wine fair) to represent the Prosecco production area. On that occasion he presented the first single vineyard of Valdobbiadene’s history: “Riva Giardino asciutto”. Abele understood, even then, the potential and superior quality of certain vineyards. Vigneto Giardino, 80 years later, is still made as a single vineyard. Adriano Adami later enlarged the winery and produced his high-quality wines mostly for the local market. From 1980, it is the third generation, Franco and Armando Adami (both winemakers), that is managing the estate, ably combining family traditions with the most advanced technologies. A modern sparkling-wine cellar is being built, while the brand is developing new markets and winning a prestigious reputation.
