About Podere Orto

Lazio, Italy

We planted our vineyard (600 m above sea level) in 2009, at the ‘trivium’ of three regions, where Lazio touches upon Umbria and Tuscany, after a rigorous massal selection. No chemical fertilisers are used. Our wines are fermented spontaneously and bottled without filtering in our own cellar.
