The Garden of the Estate
Having the utmost care for the environment is an issue that we believe in, that has always been a passion and that we have put into practice through a series of activities: from the use of electricity generated by our solar panels to the waste separation, from the use in the vineyards of small quantities of strictly necessary pesticides to the production of wine with techniques that preserve the characteristics of origin.
Even in our Wine cellar we have put in practice this concern for the environment, offering healthy foods and possibly with 0km ingredients. For this was born our Garden, an area where we grow in a natural way what we then offer to our guests in the dishes that we prepare daily.
We respect thus the original flavour and the seasonality, in order to offer the highest quality and the highest food safety.

In our Garden we also grow the " Red Onion of Cavasso and Val di Cosa" included among the “Slow Food Presidia”.

Onion of Cavasso and Val Cosa
It comes from a seed that seemed to be forgotten, but that is regaining the taste of many. It is the red onion of Cavasso or rather, the " cigola rossa di cjavàs."
Its cultivation goes back centuries and until the 60s it was a very important resource for the families in this area. The seeds were handed down, with patience and passion, from mother to daughter from the women of the country, dedicating their time to this vegetable. And after having cultivated and harvested it in the characteristics braids (riesti), they came down towards the valley to sell them.
The elders remember this vegetable as the "Red Onion of Marladi" because most of its production came from this area, the area further north of Cavasso, giving it some unique features.
Very aromatic with a particular sweetness, it is round in shape and with a characteristic flattening at the poles, the interior white with red veins, purple in the matured tunics. The size is significant: on average from 100 to 150 grams, but are frequent onions that reach up to 300 grams. The production area includes the whole municipal area and the neighbouring countries of Cavasso.
The specification for cultivation imposes strict rules such as crop rotation: it means that after a year of production, the soil should be at rest for two seasons or it must accommodate the planting of other vegetables. In addition, fertilization should be done with organic products and the sale to the public in braid, which can be large (about 2 kg) or small (about 1 kg)».

Its "sweetness" makes it very palatable and thus consumable even raw, taking better advantage of the many qualities of onions. It should be remembered, in fact, that this product helps with digestion and metabolism, has diuretic action and has a strong anti-diabetic action. In dermatology it is used as an antibiotic and antibacterial; it is also a good expectorant, is purifying, it reduces cholesterol, triglycerides and lipids in the blood. But, above all, it would seem to be useful in the prevention of cancer.
