Italy among the Kitchen and the Garden
Good Food and Conviviality are the epicenter of Italian life. Every family meets at the table to share stories, daily life and troubles. Lunch and dinner are, for us Italians, the most important and most loved moments.
Every Italian has remembrance of when he was a child helping the grandparents in the vegetable garden, picking basil leafs and the ripe tomatoes for lunch. Those fragrances, tastes and colors are etched forever in our mind as happy moments.

Come to stay a day with us from the field to table by an authentic organic farm in Montalcino's countryside, few kms outside the Old Town.
