History & Geography
Castello del Poggio is the name of the original castle in the village of Poggio. The estate is situated entirely in the town of Monferrato; it lies within the Province of Asti, one of Piedmont’s finest wine regions. The property covers 160 hectares of land. The Monferrato Astigiano is a human and cultural landscape that should be explored calmly, savoring with due curiosity its aromas and colors. As if in a fairy tale, one travels from hill to hill, from vineyards to romantic little villages, from ancient walls to medieval castles: these are the ingredients that have made this corner of Paradise unlike anywhere else in the world. An area with a culture of winemaking that stretches back for more than a thousand years, Asti and its surroundings are devoted to growing indigenous grape varieties – Barbera above all - that act as worldwide ambassadors for the Region of Piedmont.
