Castello del Poggio Wines
Castello del Poggio is located in Piedmont, one of the most prestigious wine growing regions in the world. The estate, which belonged to the noble Bunéis family, takes its name from the medieval fortress that once protected the border of the city of Asti, which served as one of the most powerful Italian communes during the Middle Ages. For centuries, the Knights Templar protected the northernmost part of the estate; this area is currently known as the Temple Valley. The Zonin family acquired the estate in 1985 and has spent considerable resources on revitalizing the iconic winery to what it is today. Not only is it the largest contiguous vineyard in Piedmont, the estate also maintains a certain degree of sustainability and produces 28% of its energy needs.
