Casale Podernovo

The Tenuta Podernovo winery completes the unique experience of a farm holiday in Tuscany

The Tenuta Podernovo – the wine estate - speaks of a love for this land, strong enough to drive the Lunelli family, who have run the Ferrari wineries for three generations, to direct their passion and conviction to the creation of elegant, intense red wines.

The Tenuta Podernovo winery complements the unique experience of a holiday in Tuscany, where the views, tastes and fragrances work together to offer guests a dream holiday that engages all the senses.

Holidaying in Tuscany and savouring the Italian lifestyle also means getting to know its wine culture and tasting some of Tuscany’s finest wines, Teuto, Aliotto and Auritea, which are produced on the estate.

Three great Tuscan wines, the fruit of a family’s passion and traditions

Separated from the farmhouse by a garden, the Tenuta Podernovo winery has a symbiotic relationship with the land, reflected in its exposed stone walls.

Here, in a fascinating setting, the Lunelli family watch over as the structure and character of two great Tuscan wines, Teuto, Aliotto and Auritea, mature in highest quality barrels for the delight of lovers of fine wines.

Accompanied by an expert guide, our visitators listen to a fascinating story from grape to wine and end their visit with a tasting experience.

Guided visits to the cellar with tasting are available:
