Rene's passion for Alpacas was born in 2001 soon after he and Esther moved permanently to the Maremma in southern Tuscany.

 

Poggio Piero was to become an unlikely Alpaca ranch  where soon there was a herd of more than 55 animals.

Due to his passion for Ferrari and all things F1, the males are named after Ferrari racing drivers and the females after country singers. I forgot to mention his passion for country music! Presumably there weren't enough female F1 drivers'!.

He prided himself on his due diligence and was a great believer in the use of science, statistics and analysis to better understand and improve the herd - never a simple task! Which is why we have a huge array of knowledge and data on each animal.

Sadly Rene passed away suddenly in November 2016 and his dream ends with him and now the herd has with sadness been sold.

Welcome to Poggio Piero. We leave photos of the animals on the site (along with his great side kick Massimo) in tribute of Rene's project.
