Vie di Romans is located in Friuli, one of Italy’s northernmost regions. The Gallo family has been producing wine there since 1978, and has become well known for their wonderful white wines. Bold choices in the vineyards and the winery have made Vie di Romans an outstanding producer in the region. For more information, visit www.viediromans.it.

The Pecchenino winery has been in operation since the late 1700’s, and run by the same family since the early 1900s. Located primarily in Dogliani and partially in Monforte d’Alba, in northern Italy, the area is especially well suited for growing the Dolcetto grape—it’s been grown there since at least 1432. The majority of the estate’s vineyards are dedicated to Dolcetto, and the remaining acreage is planted with Barbera, Nebbiolo, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.
