Roma Winery


When Sam Bassett sold his first wine in 1866 he began a tradition that has continued unbroken for over 140 years. Within 40 years, Sam was selling Burgundy, Claret, Chablis, Hock, Riesling, Sauternes and Champagne; he also sold fortified wines; Port, Muscat, Sherry and Madeira being offered. The early Roma vintner also sold grapes packed in sawdust for safe transit.
