Our Menu

We work the land according to the oldest farming traditions, with a knowledge passed down over time by the expert hands of those who knew these rich territories. We produce wines resulting from a selection of the best grapes vinified in purity, reflecting the intense character and charm of the terroir, and we offer dishes that respect the tradition and the true taste of the ingredients. For these reasons we are confident that we can offer flavors that will remain in the memory of those who taste them.

Our starters

We breed pigs scrupulously by altering the diet with vegetable waste and selected feed. The processing is carried out in our butchery. You can visit it near our farmhouse.

Our main courses

Capunsei

With butter and sage. This is a dish of Solferino tradition. They appear in a cylindrical and tapered shape. This dish takes us back to the times of Gonzaga.

Pumpkin tortelli of Mantua tradition

The pumpkin tortello is a typical dish of Mantua cuisine and the tradition dates
it back to 1500 with the progressive affirmation of pumpkin’s cultivation coming from Central America. The purpose of these preparations was to obtain a tasty
and nutritious dish just with what the farmer economy provided.
Also for this reason it has become typical in the Po Valley’s cuisine.
Today this is still deeply rooted.
