The Farmhouse Products.

PODERE CERNAIA – The foundation of the estate dates back to the year 1864, when the army of the kingdom of Italy started to build horse stables on this property, which before belonged to the great duchy of Tuscany. The estate was called ‘Scuderia Cernaia’ (Scuderia = stables), and the name Cernaia is still found in today’s address of our farm.
