The story of Inama begins in 1948 when Giuseppe Inama starts working as an oenologist; later, in 1965, he will buy the first vineyard within the denomination of Soave Classico, the Vigneto Foscarino. The commercial and production turning point will take place around the beginning of 1990 when his son Stefano enters the company and begins to produce and market the first bottles of “Sauvignon Fumè”, later also introducing Soave. A few years later the company also began to focus on the production of Carmenere for the production of quality red wine in the Colli Berici DOC. Today the Inama company is one of the most dynamic and growing realities in the area, it can count on historic vineyards both in the Soave DOC and in the Berici Hills; from 2010 to 2017 Stefano’s sons also joined the company bringing new knowledge and enthusiasm.
