About the winery
At Poggio Maiolo all work in the vineyards, aswell as on the olive orchards, is done mainly by hand, as our main goal is to have the lowest possible impact on our precious land. We've always worked as organic, and decided just recently to have our vines and olive trees certified. Our grapes are of course picked only by hand and set directly in the cases that will be delivered to the winery. We make a great selection of our grapes and therefore keep a very low production. During our wine tastings you will be able to taste our vintages, surrounded by the beautiful Umbrian countryside and accompanied by local food specialties, while learning all about our terroir, microclimate and soils that make our wines so special. In the right time of year, if you like to walk, your wine tour can be completed by a truffle hunt. To book your winetasting on weekend days please contact us a few days ahead. We look forward to meet you and tell you more about our wines!

History & Geography
Poggio Maiolo Run by sisters Valeria and Alessia, the farm was acquired by the Fortunati-Cook family in 2003, and the first vines, olive trees and truffle oaks were implanted in 2007. From there on, the extension of the vineyards has grown up to 6 hectars, along with about 800 olive trees and two oak truffle grounds, all surrounded by 25 hectars of woods where truffles grow copiously. Poggio Maiolo is located right in front of the gorgeous medieval village of Montone in the Carpina river valley, in between the upper Tiber Valley and the Umbria-Marche Appennini mountains. Montone was the hometown of warlord Braccio da Montone. The winery is surrounded by an incredible biodiversity, wild apples and cherries, several kinds of wild orchids, cyclamens, oaks, junipers and dogwoods, and counting among local wildlife deers, wild boars, badgers, porcupines, hares, hoopoes, eagle owls, foxes and wolves. Needless to say, most of the local wildlife loves our grapes too!
