Harvest at Vie di RomansHarvest at Vie di Romans

The terroir is defined by high-density low-yielding vines planted in varied gravelly ferrous soils, buttressed by winds from the Adriatic 20 kilometers to the south and the Alps 30 kilometers  to the north. These competing influences temper ripening, especially with cooler evenings that elongate the growing season. 

Various varieties of white wine are made at Vie di Romans, but the consistent theme is defined by wines of ample volume that offer appealing textural energy and verve.
