Moris Farms

The Moris Family, dedicated to organic viticulture in the Maremma region of Tuscany,

has emmerged as one of Suthern Tuscany’s premier producers offering wines which have remained true to their origin while at the same time pioneering the exploration of non-tuscan varietals.

Tenuta Poggetti, 420 Hectares located near Massa Marittima (Fattoria Poggetti), of which 37 hectares of vineyards are found within the DOC of “Monteregio di Massa Marittima“. A series of new vine plantings have occurred since 1990 In total the vineyard is represented as follows: – 34 hectares of new vineyards, – 3 hectares which exist from the 1970’s. The soil is composed of clay, with a PH slightly alkaline (7,7); due to the presence of an elevated content of pure calcium. The density of the foundation is abundant (35 %) which allows for excellent drainage. The altitude of the vineyards varies from 80 – 100 meters above sea level. The exposition of the rows is facing south west.
