Vie di Romans The unswerving dedication of the Gallo family to vineyards and wines, dating back over a century, is rooted in the labour and determination of family members such as Basilio, Stelio, Gianfranco and their relatives.
Our forty hectares of planted vineyard are located in the Mariano del Friuli township, located within the DOC zone of Friuli Isonzo, in the easternmost area of northern Italy, close to the Slovenian border. The Adriatic is barely 20 km to the south, and the first slopes of the Alps about 30 km to the north. Within the Isonzo area, we are situated on a broad terrace on the north bank of the river Isonzo.
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.
