"Iconic Piedmont estate that was once ruled by the Knights Templar"
Castello del Poggio is located in Piedmont, one of the most prestigious wine regions in the world. The farm, which belonged to the noble Bunel 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 property, this area is now known as the Temple Valley.
The Zonin family acquired the property in 1985 and spent some money to revitalize the iconic winery. In addition to being the largest vineyard in Piedmont, the property also maintains a degree of sustainability and produces 28% of its energy needs.
