Farmhouse Primavera and Villa Poggio a Varna: a hymn to history, beauty of nature and culture
Thanks to its beauty and the historical importance of these places, Farmhouse Primavera is part of the Park Benestare of Gambassi Terme and Montaione.
In the Middle Ages, many battles between the historic rivals Florence and Siena took place in the valley dominated by the tower of “Villa di Poggio a Varna”, to which some of our wines are dedicated; the ancient underground passage between “Villa Poggio a Varna” and the farmhouse “Il Poggiale”, that at that time was a monastery, dates back to this period. Some of the older inhabitants of the village of Varna still remember it, because during the Second World War the passage was used as a shelter during the bombings.
Furthermore, in the nineteenth century, Villa Poggio a Varna gave hospitality to important figures as Giuseppe Garibaldi and Giuseppe Verdi, as evidenced by two marble plaques exposed on the façade of the Villa.
