The rules of the restaurant on the farm

Farmhouse restaurants are different from others because they have to comply with very strict rules on the foods offered to customers.

25% of the food offered must come from the farm that hosts the restaurant, the rest up to 85% of the total from farms in the region.

To these rules are added today those of the spacing envisaged for the Covid rules.

Our vegetable garden and our orchard

To comply with the rules of the farm we offer our guests:

Gavi white wines and native reds (Albarossa, Pelvaro, Monferrato) coming only from our vineyards.

Sparkling Brut and dry and sweet Rosé with grapes from our vineyards, sparkling in our cellar.

Vegetables of all kinds according to the season from our gardens.

Seasonal fruit from our orchard.

Wheat: we have a wheat field from which our flour is used to make all types of pasta (lasagne, agnolotti, tagliatelle, spaghetti, etc.), bread, focaccia, biscuits and cakes.

From Piedmontese farms we buy what we don’t produce, milk (which we use to make our yoghurt), cheeses, meat, etc.

In this way we manage to be a zero kilometer agritourism restaurant, with always fresh food, made at the moment.

Our restaurant is open on Friday and Saturday for dinner and on Sunday for lunch, all other days including Sunday for dinner only for bookings of at least 10 people.

We offer a tasting menu accompanied by an à-la-carte menu which varies weekly depending on availability.
