Made with passion and respect for Nature
Respect for nature is the principle underlying all the estate’s work and each and every product embodies this profound love. And not just our organic wine, but also our other Tuscan products such as oil, honey and grappa.
Poggio La Luna is a small, young Maremma estate. Our family-run style allows for total control of the whole production process and ensures that every single stage will be followed with skill and professionalism. The challenge is making healthy, tasty products which are characteristic of the local area. It is undoubtedly a challenge, but one which we pursue with determination.
The fruit of Poggio La Luna’s work and passion is a range of unique products which fully reflect the local area, the Maremma. The estate’s production comprises DOC wine, extra virgin olive oil, honey and grappa. Naturally wine is centre stage, with just one label at present.
Honey, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Grappa
No medications are used on our bees, just natural products. Our honey is handcrafted using an entirely natural honeycomb centrifugal extraction method with no treatments at all.
No insecticides and only organic fertilisers are used on our olive trees. Oil is obtained from a first cold pressing of Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino olives. Green with golden highlights, it is fruity in flavour with hints of almonds and artichokes and a mildly spicy finale.
Our grappa is made by distilling the skins of healthy Sangiovese grapes only, picked from vineyards at the right stage of ripening in our small estate vineyard. Slow distilling using the discontinuous method allows all the great complexity of grapes to come out in this grappa.
