La Combarbia- Winery using Traditional ideas with Modern techniques
The story of La Combarbia started in the sixties when Novilio Mariani came to Cervognano and settled there with his family. This area is known since long for the cultivation of the vine, and he was the first in the family to produce it here. Novilio’s nephew, Gabriele Florio, took over the company in 2016, with the aim of continuing and establishing the family wine business. The purpose was to combine traditional ideas with modern techniques and machinery to cultivate vines and winemaking.
Significance of their Winery Name
The name Combarbia means crossroads, a place where multiple roads come together. The farmers of the village met at Combarbia, in rooms in front of the village Church. They talked to each other and shared their stories and personal facts while sipping on the best Tuscan wine.
The name of the winery was kept Combarbia so that their wines reflect the spirit of brotherhood.
