Adria Vini

Located in Puglia · Italy

Winemaking venture Adria Vini was founded in 2003, when Boutinot joined forces with Piemontese co-operative Araldica Castelvero with the aim of crafting good-value authentic wines from local grape varieties. The team sources its fruit from a range of co-operatives and growers around Italy (including Sicily and Sardinia as well as mainland growing areas), establishing long-term relationships for the best outcomes all around.

The team is headed up by Araldica winemakers Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese, assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW – between them they oversee everything from fruit selection to vinification and bottling.
