Dominio Romano's core values revolve around respecting nature, the environment and biodiversity.

As a result, we’ve consistently cultivated our vineyards using certified organic farming methods since 2011, refraining entirely from pesticides or herbicides. We tailor our approach to suit the specific needs of the vineyards, taking into account the prevailing weather conditions each year. This involves adjusting soil management practices accordingly, enabling us to effectively address the challenges posed by each vintage.

The organic agriculture we apply in our vineyards is based on soil fertility and biological activity, creating a balanced ecosystem around the vines so that all life existing in the vineyard is in good harmony. Only when strictly necessary do we use authorized products in organic agriculture, mainly powdered sulfur to combat Powdery Mildew. In years of very abundant spring rains, copper-based products can be used for Downy Mildew. Alternatively, we also use medicinal plant infusions (horsetail and/or nettle) to help regulate fungal activity.

Cultivating health from the soil to the glass

Organic agriculture is a much more respectful working philosophy, involving more work, more observation of the vineyard, and knowledge about it, but it is undoubtedly a long-term commitment to health, not only for the vineyard but also for consumers of our wines. Concrete examples of how this working philosophy has benefited both the vineyards and consumers in the past could include improvements in soil quality, greater plant resistance to diseases and pests, and more authentic and healthier wines.

Quality wines from the roots

The purpose of this type of organic agriculture is to obtain grapes of the highest quality, which reach the winery in the best conditions and obtain the best possible must, because only then can we make quality wines that are capable of expressing their origin and at the same time are good for the health of the planet and people.

Another important point about sustainability is water management.

At Dominio Romano, we do not irrigate our vines with the aim of making their roots as deep as possible, so they fight to search for water, making them better at withstanding periods of drought, and at the same time extract all the character from the soil. This specific practice of non-irrigation not only promotes deeper roots but also contributes to the quality of the grapes by allowing them to absorb essential nutrients and minerals from the soil more effectively, resulting in wines of greater complexity and character.
