Where The Wines Come From

Emilia-Romagna

Emilia-Romagna, located in northern Italy, is renowned for its rich culinary traditions and vibrant wine culture. In recent years, the region has become a hub for natural winemaking, with producers embracing sustainable practices and minimal intervention techniques. From the rolling hills of Romagna to the fertile plains of Emilia, vineyards here are often cultivated organically or biodynamically, allowing native grape varieties such as Sangiovese, Lambrusco, and Albana to thrive. Natural winemakers in Emilia-Romagna prioritize expressing the unique terroir of their vineyards, resulting in wines that are lively, expressive, and true to their origins. Reds are known for their bright fruit flavors and soft tannins, while the region's iconic Lambrusco offers a refreshing and effervescent alternative. Emilia-Romagna's natural wines are a reflection of the region's commitment to quality and tradition, offering a taste of its rich cultural heritage with every sip.
