Take a Deep Dive into the Roman Winemaking Traditions
After World War II, a consortium of small vine growers found the Gotto d’oro Winery in 1945. The estate traces its roots back to the Roman times from which it has got the name “Gotto,” meaning “Goblet.” In fact, the term derives from the Latin guttus, an alternative form of gutus (jug or flask), and indicates a vessel used for drinking wine. Today, the current owners have given a modern and dynamic shape to the winery and its processes, retaining a strong link to its origins. The winery employs 30 workers and 15 seasonal employees.
Volcanic Soils Perfect for International and Native Grapes
The vineyard region, expanded across the best terroirs of Castello Romani, cultivates a comprehensive range of international and indigenous vines. It includes Malvasia Del Lazio, Bellone, White Bombino, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and Cesanese. Some vineyards are old, while others are replanted over time. With these grapes, Gotto d’oro produces top-class red, white, and rose wines, all made under Frascati DOC, Marino DOC, and Castello Romani DOC statuses. The estate also owns a wine lounge, Salotto del Vino, a space perfect for guest wine tasting activities, along with a large presentation room and conference room.
