Situated a few miles from Rome, Italy in Frascati, we were privy to a wine tasting at Merumalia Wine Estate. The host was very courteous and detailed in his explanations of how the company, a mere 6 years old, started making wine and olive oil. A former astronaut, he and his family have taken ownership of the estate. The most impressive thing about the production of the wine is that it's all certified organic. While their array of half a dozen white wines, one red wine, and olive oils are giving themselves a name in Italy, they are just making their mark in the US, with plans to expand in the coming months.
