In Lazio, people have inhabited the hilly areas and various places along rivers since the early Stone Age. In the 19th century BC, the Etruscans along with Latin and Italic tribes founded the first settlements. Little by little, Rome became the most important center of the region. This city grew considerably until the 3rd century BC. With the growth of Roman power, the activities in agriculture and civil engineering also grew. Impressive aqueducts transported water over long distances to the cities, and paved roads enabled long-distance transport. New roads such as Salaria, Appia, Aurelia, Flaminia, Cassia, Nomentana, Tiburtina-Valeria, Prenestina and Casilina have been built by the Romans and still form the basis of the infrastructure in Europe today. These roads connected almost all of Europe with Rome.

This is where the saying "All roads lead to Rome" comes from.
During the late Roman Empire, the fertile coastal plain of Lazio was a swamp inhabited by malaria mosquitoes, mainly by barbarian tribes such as the Visigoths, the Vandals and the Lombards. From the 8th century onwards Lazio fell under the Duchy of Rome and thus fell under direct Puzzen authority. Lazio was part of this Duchy until 1870. In 1871, Rome became the capital of unified Italy, which gave an important boost to this wine region.

The growth of Rome and Lazio as a political, commercial and tourist center brought sufficient economic prosperity to drain the Pontine Marshes and transform them into fertile agricultural areas. In addition, new factories were built and one of the first metro systems in Europe was built in Rome.

The Romans have produced excellent wines in Lazio since the beginning of the Empire. This mainly concerns white wine. Of the 25 DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) wines produced, 20 are white. For the product of wine, mainly Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes are used. To a lesser extent, grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay Voigner, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot, Cesanese, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese and Montepulciano are used. The latter are used for the production of red wine and ripen mainly on the volcanic slopes of the Colli Albani and other areas with a soil rich in phosphorus and potassium salts.
