Red Shed

The Amadio family wine story in Australia started in a red corrugated iron shed which was built by my grandfather Giovanni Amadio, just after he arrived from Italy in 1927.

 

From his modest beginnings in the Adelaide suburb of East Marden, now Campbelltown, Giovanni produced and sold his elegant wines from his red shed cellar door and also to many iconic Italian restaurants in Melbourne's infamous Lygon Street. Giovanni taught my father Caj the appreciation of wine, with its place on the dinner table and finally the art of making wines. My father in turn taught me the skills of creating elegant award winning wines and I am committed to carrying on the Amadio tradition.
