ROOTS NATURAL WINE – IMPORTER AND DISTRIBUTOR IN MALTA

What do we do?

Roots Natural Wine was born at the end of 2018 with the purpose of spreading the natural wine culture in Malta, through the import and distribution of sustainable wines produced by Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wineries.

The wine we decided to import is made by Italian independent winegrowers, most of them, follow natural farming practices without any chemical intervention. Our wines are farmed organically and biodynamically, without any use of chemicals in the vineyard and in the cellar. We strongly believe that it’s necessary going back to drink genuine wines in their truest form. Neither artifacts nor improving practices in the cellars are accepted as well as technologies crutch, chemical products or sterilizing practises. All of these have a bad impact on the quality of the final product. We trust the importance of preserving our body and health like our producers do taking care of their soils and respecting the nature where the products come from. They sustain an healthy habitat in the vineyard generating living wine from living soils. In the name of this attention to the quality, we treat every single bottle with the respect it deserves with constant checks of the temperature, light and humidity of our warehouse and last but not least during the shipping phase and the deliveries to our customers. So, do you want to learn more about natural wine? Read below…

What’s natural wine?

Have you ever tasted natural wine?

NO ADDED SULPHITES

The most common feature is related to sulphites that will not be added during the vinification process. Sulphites are preserving agents very dangerous for human health.

NO CHEMICAL INTERVENTION

A natural producer doesn’t use any kind of chemical products during the vinification process or any invasive intervention that could change the real nature of his wine.

NO PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES

Toxic synthetic pesticides usage is strictly forbidden, farmers adopt ecologically sustainable farming practices like non-chemical pest control.

HEALTHINESS – BETTER TOLERANCE

Eventhough we are talking about alcool, a natural wine is absolutely more tolerable than an industrial one. No more headaches or allergies. Now you can drink safe.

Our Heroes

We are very pleased to introduce our beloved winemakers!

Cantina Ribelà – Lazio

Daniele and Chiara are a young couple from Frascati (Lazio). The varieties of grape they grow are Bellone, Malvasia di Candia, Cesanese, Trebbiano and Bombino. All locals varieties that they decided to manage following the biodynamic principles. I can assure you that are absolutely amazing!

Stefano Amerighi – Tuscany

His Syrah is known as the most important in Italy. His idea was to produce a great biodynamic Syrah that should have been the true reflection of the Cortona’s Terroir. His winery is a wonderful and pristine place in Tuscany where it’s impossible not to fall in love with!

Damiano Ciolli – Lazio

In Olevano Romano (Lazio) Damiano and Letizia are the owners of this iconic biodynamic winery. Their Cesanese is becoming one of the most important and desired wines by every natural wine’s fan.

Marco Carpineti – Lazio

Marco Carpineti - Anfora

In Cori (Lazio) there is an organic winery where Marco and his son are giving new importance to local traditional grape varieties doing great wines including a stunning Champenoise Method.

Tenuta Lenzini – Tuscany

Tenuta Lenzini

You don’t know them, right? Very bad! You’ll thank me cause their wines, every single wine they produce is absolutely and incredibly fragrant, well done and addicting! Listen to me, try them!

Azienda Agricola Raìna – Umbria – Montefalco

Raina winery

My name is Francesco Mariani, I am chef and winegrower in Montefalco, Umbria. I make wines from biodynamic grapes togethet with my friend and assistant Andrea Mattioli. “Raina” was the nickname of the previous owner of the field where we planted the first of our Sagrantino vines. We chose this name for the cantina to preserve the link between the land and its history.

Ca del Vènt – Franciacorta

Ca del Vent

In 1994, we established Cà del Vént willing to make our own wine instead of delivering grapes to the local collective winery. In 1996, we got the first 5 barrels of red wine from autochthonous varieties, made just for our consumption, but already made with great determination. These wines have turned into a more structure, a wider and more complex aromatic range ( still developing ), a pretty live feature and above all they remind clearly true aroma and flavour of grape. This energy approach has nothing to do with scientific knowledge, it’s of course a matter of feelings, with nature, with the wine and with the energy we are surrounded by.

Cascina delle Rose – Piedmont – Barbaresco

Cascina delle rose Barbaresco

Our motto: The wine, as the vineyard, must be respected, even in times. The tradition and elegance are the two key words that must be the life motive of our firm.

In 1997 Italo and his sons joined me, Davide and Riccardo: our present and future. Davide, the 1st son, is now the responsible of the countryside and we collaborate with him. His careful sensibility guide him into the work choice which are changing from an year to another because of the different weather conditions.

Ferdinando Principiano – Piedmont – Barolo – Monforte d’Alba

Ferdinando Principiano Barolo

My passion for wine has always been present, because I was born in a peasant family, I’ve always been a farmer and I’ve always wanted to be a farmer. I started my first harvest in 1993 following the modern and conventional production in vogue in the early 90s. Ten years later, due to my intolerances towards chemicals that I used in the vineyard and towards wine-making additives that I used in the cellar, I decided to change philosophy and start a more natural production. I made a huge amount of changes, but to resume, it might be better to say that I have removed everything rather than modifying it. I have eliminated the use of additives and also the use of oenological machinery, all the products and practices that manipulate the natural winemaking process. This translates into balance and drinkability combined with the freshness of my wines.

Ausonia – Abruzzo

Cantina Ausonia - Simone e Francesca

From Abruzzo, another young couple, Simone and Francesca are the owner of this reality where tradition, commitment and passion collide in this ancient territory where wine is life and culture.

Our Team

Claudio Rosadini

OWNER AND DIRECTOR

Entrepreneur, Italian Sommelier and wine lover.

Despite my past work experiences, only one thing has always fascinated and totaled me. The visceral love I have for food and wine.

This is why it subsequently became my job, I graduated from the delegation of Rome at the Italian Sommelier Association (AIS) and had a series of work experiences and met very important people who allowed me to become the sommelier and entrepreneur who I am today.

But only in recent years I specialized in natural wines or in any case in the sustainable wine production (organic and biodynamic agriculture) and I deeply fell in love for them, so much so that today I have difficulty drinking something that is produced in a conventional way.

My creed and my mission is to allow each of you to know natural wine and to make you fall in love with wine as it was for me.
