A HEREDITY MADE OF WORK, TRADITIONS, UNION AND LOVE FOR PEOPLE AND FOR THE EARTH
Poggio al Vento is a family-run farmhouse. Lido, Marisa and Roberto Mascelloni have been offering hospitality since 1994 in 5 apartments for two people each, welcoming and equipped with a large panoramic garden overlooking the Orcia river valley with a 180° view.
Our family will also welcome you for tasting of agricultural products from organic farming, D.O.C. Orcia rossi and extra virgin olive oil, produced directly with our hands.
Poggio al Vento, owned by the Mascelloni family since 1961, has always been a family-run farm.
At the beginning of the seventies, the production of cereals and wines began, with the planting of one hectare of vineyards in addition to the existing one, and the marketing of wine in demijohns, "large 54-liter glass bottles".
In 1994 we inaugurated the first 3 apartments, (Giglio Tulipano and Geranio) and, in consideration of the increased reception, we created another 2 (Oleandro and Mimosa), completing the external gardens.
On Valentine's Day 2000, we bottled our first Sangiovese wine, obtaining the controlled designation of origin "Orcia", contributing to the improvement of quality by using barriques for aging.
In 2002, we decided to make a superior quality wine based on Sangiovese by adding 15% of round leaf which we calledARCERE.
Given the success we decided to transpose the teachings of the "case" also to the production of oil, harvesting only olives of the "Frantoio" variety in the first days of November, achieving excellent qualitative results, with this oil we had the award of the best oil in the country in 2011.
After the 2013 harvest we noticed the superior quality of our Sangiovese coming from a vineyard where on clear moonless nights you can admire the Milky Way in line with the rows. This is why we gave the name to this Sangiovese "carro stellato".
