Amadio Wines – has launched a new series: The Horse and Cart Series

Now becoming South Australia’s leading and largest grower of the alternative Italian grape varieties.

One of the State’s earliest established family wine companies, Amadio Wines is synonymous with progressive winemaking and has developed an enviable reputation for planting alternative wine varieties. The Amadio family’s heritage stems from southern Italy and the climate is very similar to that of South Australia.

Amadio’s Managing Director, Daniel Amadio, is continuing his family’s successful winemaking legacy with entrepreneurial spirit. Mr Amadio says: “We’ve been planting vines across South Australia’s Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island & Mclaren Vale. The key to planting successful grape varieties is all about location’

It is this vision that inspires the new Horse & Cart Series.


Mr Amadio says: “The Horse & Cart series is unique and bold, much like my grandfather Nonno Giovanni Amadio was.”

First-generation winemaker, Giovanni Amadio arrived in SA in 1930 and was the first person to register a dry table wine in South Australia. He would set off from Felixstow daily to deliver his locally grown produce to the Adelaide Central Market. On the way, Giovanni would drop homemade wine to friends and family for over a decade. Giovanni travelled exclusively by horse and cart.


All four wines are available for purchase here.
