“We are thrilled with these latest medals which confirm the hard work and energy our entire team puts into every bottle of Albino Armani wines. They also showcase the incredible terroirs we have here in the Tre Venezie area in Northern Italy where my family has been rooted for 400 years,” Albino Armani said.
The “Tre Venezie” area is a wide area made of three regions Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giula and Trentino that spans from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea. This area is rich with different climates and terroirs, each unique. The whole Albino Armani production is made here and is certified sustainable. Water conservation and use of natural forms of pest control, are just few of the practices used by the winery to responsibly support both the environment and the community.
