Marinella Camerani decided in 1986 that she wanted to leave behind her life as an accountant and moved back to her family's house north of Verona. She transformed the neglected family vineyard, farming organically from the start, and subsequently adopted biodynamic practices. The name Adalia is a reference to Adalia Bipunctuata, a two dotted ladybird that is rife in her vineyards. She now works with her daughter, so the family company is in safe hands.
