The company name ADALIA derives from Adalia Bipunctata, a small ladybug with two black spots on the wings. She is our friend, and she is a formidable hunter of the main aphid species.

In a corner of the Val di Mezzane, a sunny and well ventilated area, we find a small jewel of Valpolicella.

5 hectares that want to become the expression of a different concept of farm: young but authentic, innovative but always in direct contact with nature, in one of the most traditional and austere wine-growing areas on the national scene. 

hanks to the experience in the countryside and in the cellar, to a fresh and enthusiastic management, a new and important reality has developed in the world of Italian wine.

Each Adaila wine comes from a particular vineyard which, due to the position, the variety of grapes, the age and the type of farming, has over time been preferred to produce that wine, allowing us to achieve an undisputed and well-defined quality.

All the grapes, have the organic and Demeter certification, are harvested by hand at the optimal moment of ripeness, sometimes forcing us to make several passages in the vineyards.

Fermentations start spontaneously (indigenous yeasts) and take place in 40 hl conical oak vats, where temperatures are only partially controlled.
