Inama is a third-generation, family-owned winery in Verona, Italy who has been solely dedicated to producing quality wines for the last 40 years. The estate's founder, Giuseppe Inama, began purchasing small plots of land back in the 1950s. Over the years, this would grow to the 30 hectares that the estate currently maintains. While the winery started with the old vines of Garganega grapes, they have expanded into red wines over the years, taking advantage of the neighbouring province of Vicenza. While the eastern land is only 10 miles from the Soave region where the majority of the estate's land is located, the two different terroirs are unique enough to produce the distinctiveness the winery is looking to achieve.

Unlike a lot of wineries who use organic labelling to upsell their product, Inama chooses to omit this on their labeling, despite the fact that their agricultural system is organic. The Berici Hills (also called, Colli Berici) in the province of Vicenza, where Inama's red varietals are grown, is a terroir rich in minerals. Back in the day, Carmanère grapes were brought into the region from France. The hot, dry summers of the region makes it the perfect environment for Carmenère, and all these years later, the wines are slowly beginning to show distinctive features from their French counterparts. The winery has a minimalist approach to oenological practices (they even use the same techniques whether fermenting in barrel or vat and have been carefully selecting the grapes they use for many years) and cites this as the reason for their flavourful wines and aromatic sensations.
