The Winery

We make our wines in Monfumo, in the heart of the Asolo hills. Our estate is divided into three separate vineyards: Vigneto del Biss, Vigneto del Longon and Vigneto Era Grande, their specificity enabling the cultivation of grapes with different tastes and characteristics. These blend beautifully to give Tenuta Amadio wines the aromas and flavours that make them unique products of their kind.

We own a total of 20 hectares of land, 12 of which are cultivated with vineyards.

We use sustainable agriculture in our vineyards, because we believe it is important to preserve our terrain in order to hand it on to the next generations in the same fertile condition we inherited it.

The excellence of our grapes is maintained during processes in the winery, where we use grapes almost exclusively from our own estate. Harvesting is carried out the old-fashioned way, by hand into small crates, then the grapes are immediately taken to the winery using a small steel truck and worked while still fresh.

Our winery is set among these hills, dug out of the rock and in perfect harmony with the landscape. Carefully built to ensure it fits into its surroundings, it is beautifully camouflaged, almost maniacal attention having been paid to the use of natural, local materials such as wood and stone. It is sheltered by a hanging garden and surrounded by a row of vines.

Inside the winery, the grapes are turned into wine using the most modern techniques at a constantly controlled temperature. We take care not to alter the product, but to enhance the flavours and aromas typical of our territory.

Of all the Tenuta Amadio wines, our top product is Asolo DOCG Prosecco Superiore, the result of a strictly controlled production chain featuring cutting-edge technology and entirely manual processing of the grapes.

About us

About us

The Tenuta Amadio estate embodies an ancient yet modern spirit, the result of the love and commitment of the various generations of the Rech family for these hills.

The estate’s origins date back to 1850, when the head of the family Amadio Rech came into possession of this terrain in the Castelli di Monfumo hills and began to grow grapes and the famous autochthonous apples.

After being a source of income and support for all the family for many years, the estate was abandoned. It has now been recuperated and brought back to life thanks to the passion and will of Simone and Silvia, the new generation of the Rech family. They wanted to revive the vine-growing and wine-making vocation of this area and repopulate the estate’s vineyards.

“We have made this our mission: looking after the product from soil to bottle, passionately following each stage in production with methodical discipline.”

Simone and Silvia Rech.

Asolo

Asolo

Asolo. The city of a hundred horizons.

The Asolo hills are a series of gently undulating slopes dotted with vineyards and olive groves surrounding the city itself. Described by Giosuè Carducci as the “city of a hundred horizons”, Asolo has one of the most remarkable and beautiful old city centres in Italy.

Embraced by ancient walls that branch out from the Rocca, the twelfth-century fortress, every part of this town is testimony to its millenary history. Its great appeal attracted poets and writers, artists and travellers, who here found inspiration and harmony.

Among these, the English poet Robert Browning, the “Divine” stage actress Eleonora Duse, the composer Gian Francesco Malipiero, the English writer and traveller Freya Stark.

Since the year 1000 A.D., Benedictine monks have here spread the culture of vine-growing and wine-making, which subsequently flourished with the Venetian Republic.

In these hills, where excellence is an everyday affair, the Consortium of Montello-Colli Asolani wines was set up to protect designation of origin marking. This aims to give the wines the recognition they deserve and promote the local area, in close collaboration with other protection consortia.

Thanks to the increasing commitment, attention and awareness of producers, recent years have seen creation of the prestigious DOCG (controlled and guaranteed designation of origin) for Asolo Prosecco.
