The historic landscape between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea is the eastern part of the Italian wine-growing region of Emilia-Romagna. It is home to such important cities as Cesena, Imola, Ravenna and, as the centre of seaside tourism, Rimini. From the 15th century onwards, there were constantly changing rulers here and in 1859 Romagna even formed an independent state called the Cispadan Republic with its capital Bologna for six months.

In 2011, the comprehensive DOC area of the same name was created, including the wines of the five DOC areas Cagnina di Romagna, Pagadebit di Romagna, Sangiovese di Romagna, Romagna Albana Spumante and Trebbiano di Romagna, which were thereby abandoned. It is divided into the subzones Bertinoro, Brisighella, Castrocaro-Terra del Sola, Cesena, Longiano, Meldola, Modigliana, Marzeno, Oriolo, Predappio. San Vicinio and Serra. There are some differences in the product range per subzone. The vineyards cover around 2,900 hectares of vines.
