Collection: Bodegas Santiago Roma
The winery was born from a vision to produce a Rías Baixas wine of exceptional quality and a unique personality. Taking advantage of the family experience in the wine sector, Santiago Roma established his own marker for quality, and in 1997 opened the winery in an old farmhouse, completely renovated and equipped to comply with his demanding quality standards.
The winery overlooks the Salnés Valley - considered the birthplace of the Albariño grape - and the six hectares of land owned by the winery along with other controlled plots. All vineyards - estate and controlled - are treated with natural and environmentally-friendly products to fertilize and to control weed growth, and chemical products are never used.
Throughout the production process, artisanal methods and modern technology are combined. Grapes are carefully hand-harvested and then once in the winery they are de-stemmed and go directly to a pneumatic press to be crushed at low pressure and cold temperature. The must is racked to eliminate further impurities. Fermentation is in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks using native yeasts (from their own grapes, from the yeast settled to the bottom of the tank), and without any further intervention. Acidity in the wine is reduced in a biological manner using partial malolactic fermentation (depending on the vintage), and the wine is stabilized in isothermal stainless steel tanks.
Santiago asserts that the vineyard and land quality, the unique microclimate, the passion and dedication of the winery personnel, and the exhaustive controls carried out during the whole process, make it possible to achieve a personalized wine which brings pleasure to the palate.
