The Farm of Podere l’Aione came into life in 2002 with the purchase and restoration of an ancient property, after it had suffered a long period of neglect. We brought back together all the areas of the land that had been split up over the years.
We took our chances, and also made our mistakes, we learned how to manage a farm, work in the fields and harvest crops.
Today we take care of about 4 hectares of vines, we boast a beautiful olive grove that we planted ourselves and that has been giving us an excellent extra-virgin olive oil.
We have been beekeeping for ten years, as a passion. Our apiary has 10 to 20 beehives, producing wildflower honey that changes according to honey extraction periods.
Agritourism cannot exist without a working farm enterprise. The maintenance of lawns and gardens is done in parallel with field work and woodland management. If nature is left unattended, it nullifies all human effort.
PODEROSO Morellino di Scansano Docg - Our Morellino. It is obtained from the vinification of Sangiovese grapes grown on our vineyards..
TESTADURA Maremma Toscana Igt - A wine produced from the Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties after spending 12 months in wood.
EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Our oil is produced from the Leccino and Olivastra Seggianese olive varieties. Olives are collected and sent to the local mill to be turned into olive oil. Part of the oil produced is used on the farm, the rest is sold at the farm shop in bottles of different sizes..
Every year, in the summer season, the honey produced by our bees is packaged and sold at our farm shop.
