Vie di Romans

The winery 'Vie di Romans' is named after the historical toponym of the place where the cellar is located. Originally it was the name of an old roman road. In this place the unswerving dedication of the Gallo family to vineyards and wines, dating back over a century, founds is roots in the labour and determination of three generations of family members.

Gianfranco, who has managed the estate since 1978, introduced radical and far-reaching viticultural programmes and has devoted painstaking attention to winemaking practices; these initiatives have given the stamp of unique personality to the wines of Vie di Romans over the last 20 years. Wines from distinct vineyards were produced separately beginning in 1990, and in 1992, with the release of the 1990 vintage, the custom was established of releasing all whites a full two years after harvest. Antonio Galloni of Wine Advocate writes, "While vineyards in this district have historically been considered less important than those of the Collio, a number of inspired, artisan producers including Gianfranco Gallo (Vie di Romans) crafts gorgeous wines."
