Merumalia (Lazio)


Imagine a green field opening on a soft hill that overlooks Frascati’s DOCG vineyards, the olive grove hillside of the Castelli Romani and the ancient Regillo Lake, a landscape of agricultural calling just a few kilometers away from the capital. This is Merumalia, literally ‘wine and not only’, heaven for lovers of uncontaminated food, fine wine, relax and outdoor promenades, Wine Resort and Organic Farm.

At the center of Wine Resort is the farmhouse, built at the beginning of the twentieth century, surrounded by a garden with ornamental flowers and plants, pine and fruit trees, where the view goes from the Lazio coastline to the Tiburtina and Prenestina mounts, Tivoli close up and where, in the warmest summer days, one can admire the sun gently slipping behind “er Cupolone”, as the Romans call the San Peter’s dome, into the Tyrrhenian sea.

The Fusco family opens their door to welcome all nature and oenology lovers who wish to taste and appreciate the fruits of the land and of the precious work of men and women who, for years now, have been collaborating with the farm’s activities.

The Wine Resort offers a cozy and fascinating stay based on the culture of fine wining and dining. It includes the ancient restructured farmhouse and the cellar, built inside a hill, with the halls for the grape making and the wine bedding and the rooms for event organizations. Here, the local tradition of vineyard and olive grove cultivation and biological farming has been safeguarded and integrated by technological innovation, the use of renewable energies and precision farming that allow to optimize the agricultural processes.
