Poggio le Volpi
"If I look backwards I see hard-working hands, grandfather's tales, my father's secrets"
In order to find the roots of Poggio Le Volpi Company, we have to make a leap back of almost a century. Everything began in 1920 when Manlio Mergè starts his production of wine and oil. His passion for the land is first transmitted to his son Armando and then to his grandson Felice. Both transform the dream of grandfather Manlio into reality, founding in 1996 the Poggio le Volpi Farm in Monte Porzio Catone. This is a volcanic origin area, herefore it is inherently fertile. Poggio le Volpi represents the first business turning point of the family company. If Armando started the Monte Porzio Catone production and the transformation of the company from local to a national one, Felice, following the business inclination of his father, becomes enologist leading the company into the circle of the most interesting winemaking companies in terms of production in the Lazio region, achieving high appreciation amongst the national and international niche wine lovers. Felice Mergè cultivates a modern and varied winemaking tradition, typical of eclectic and ambitious people, just like Manlio and Armando Mergé. Since 1920 the Mergè story is about territory, passion, and quality.
