'Our family started farming in 1607...The common denominator of our wineries are the Alps that surround us. It is a territory that we love and protect. We work our lands with sustainable practices so we can give to future generations the ability to enjoy at least what we have and hopefully more.' Albino Armani
In a wild and majestic land covered in mountains and forests that extend to the horizon, the Adige River meanders through valley infused with thriving vineyards. The breathtaking landscape, cut by the typical pergola and spalliere trellising system of grape vines, is interrupted here and there by small villages and castles. Welcome to Vallagarina!
This picturesque land of today resembles the land of yesterday in many ways; not only does it continue to connect Trentino, South Tyrol, with Veneto, but the locals continue to work and be one with the land as they have for centuries.
According to the chronicles of this robust land, the Armani Family settled in the village of Chizzola di Trento, and Domenico Armani started the family tradition of great vine growers and winemakers in the seventeenth century. Today the Armani family continues to work this land and love its vines. In keeping with family tradition, the Armani's continue to select the most desirable land and the heartiest vines for their wines.
For centuries, the Armani family has continued to expand its vineyards into three different regions: Trentino-South Tyrol, Veneto, and Friuli. The wines produced in these three regions, such as the Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso or the Muller Thurgau, express their unique flavors and local flair in their taste.
The Armani Family is passionate and protective of its vines, and, as a result, the Terre di Gioia brand has been born from selection of the best vines in their estates located in Chizzola (Trentino), Sequals (Friuli), and Dolce' (Veneto) under Terre Dominici winery name. This new brand is a tribute to the forefather Domenico who believed that in order to have a bright future one must have deep roots in the past. Terre di Gioia wines are noble wines that are easy to drink and have an elegant style. Their smooth, fruity tastes are a direct result of their land and an expression of its beauty.
