Castello del Poggio

Aristocratic and modern wines with strong character and aromatic qualities from Piedmont

About the winery
The Castello del Poggio Estate takes its name from the 12th century fortress that belonged to the aristocratic Bunéis family and which looks down over the Val del Temp, an extraordinary natural amphitheatre that once belonged to the Knights Templar and which is now entirely dedicated to the cultivation of vines. Castello del Poggio lies in the heart of the Asti area, the historic habitat of varieties such as Grignolino and Moscato and now home for the renaissance of Barbera as a cultivar destined for making topquality red wines that are seductively expressive and formidably long-lived.

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.
