In 2008, Cesanese del Piglio became the only red wine to achieve Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita DOCG status in the Region of Lazio.
Still today, a significant amount of DOCG wine is produced at this winery, approximately 250,000 bottles per year. Using the grapes that are in part conferred by members and in part purchased on the market, the Cantina Sociale offers important outsourcing services to local companies for producing their own labels. There are about a dozen wineries of this type.
The Cantina Sociale was the very first founding member of the Consorzio di tutela (producers association) for the Cesanese del Piglio DOCG, which is also known as simply Piglio
