Collezione Millesimi

After a few years of careful consideration and planning, we finally have the pleasure of introducing you to our new initiative, Collezione Millesimi (Vintage-dated Collection).

WHAT IS THE TRUE COLOUR OF PINOT GRIGIO?

Straw yellow, coppery, paper white, rosé, onion skin: these are the hues that we can expect when we encounter a Pinot Grigio, so that the question often legitimately arises of what exactly is the correct colour expression of this wine.

Our History

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.
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.
There were a number of  important steps in this historic process. 1978 saw the first bottling and label on the market, followed by vineyard reorganization aiming at improving quality in 1982; in 1989 the new three-storey winery building was erected.  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.
