It seems wine lovers around the world are increasingly seeing the world through rosé-tinted glasses. They are embracing #RoséAllDay with consumption skyrocketing in popularity.  

Gone are the days of super sweet and sappy roses. Now when you think pink, think crisp, dry with a zippy acidity, well made, with a range of seductive aromas. Including the likes of red berries,  peach, citrus, violet, melon, hibiscus and more depending on where it’s made.

We will be chatting with Vineyard Manager and Winemaker Shauna White, of Adamo Estate Winery, located in an emerging region. Adamo is are dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming.

The history begins with Mario Adamo: visionary, risk-taker, pioneer.

Born in Calabria, Italy, and arriving in Canada when he was 18 years old, Mario followed the path to where his passion for food could shine. In 1972, Mario and his wife Nancy started a thriving catering business, and in 1985, they took the opportunity to move their business and life to a location that really felt like home. It was then that Hockley Valley Resort was born, and has now evolved into a 104 room, four-season resort and culinary destination.

As the years passed, Mario continued to consider the land in their region, comparing it to his home in Calabria. He remembered the vine-covered hills fondly, deciding that the hills of Hockley Valley would also be a sustainable option for grape-growing. Alhough the region was not known for winemaking, this did not deter Mario. He followed his instinct and planted some test vines with his late friend, Frank. And he waited.

The vitality of those vines was confirmed when Jonas Newman of Hinterland Winery paid Mario an early spring visit, confirming that the vines were hearty enough for extended planting.

Adamo Estate Winery offers over 50wines in16 grape varietals.

Mario’s sheer will and determination, combined with the family’s standard for the highest quality, is the foundation for Adamo Estate Winery. Along with their drive to succeed, the Adamos sought sage advice (from winemakers like Jonas Hinterland) and capable staff, like their Vineyard and Winery Manager, Shauna White, whose experience is surpassed only by her passion for excellence.
