POGGIO LE VOLPI - Founded by Felice Merge in 1996 in Monte Porzio Catone, the winery Poggio le Volpi is one of the wineries in the Lazio region. As the land covers a surface of volcanic soil with predominantly noon orientated vertical trills, the philosophy of Poggio le Volpi is to valorize the ampelographic richness of the land.
