The Vinegar farmhouse Leonardi started its activity in the 18th century but it is from the middle of the 19th century that it has been specialized in the production of balsamic vinegar, using the own raw material. In fact, the farmhouse is surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards mainly with grapes varieties of Trebbiano (white grape) and Lambrusco (red grape). It is a closed cycle farm since all the production steps take place in the same plant.
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level.

These blends are made in an area known for single-varietal wines, shifting the focus from the grape to the terroir.
Liguria is an astonishing Italian Region where mountains touch the sea, little fisherman villages keep their ancient beauty and olive trees grow in stone made terraces. Rosmarino Farm is an old house dominating the Tigullio Gulf right in front of the famous Portofino village. Luisa and Gian Marco Petrelli, many years ago, discovered a charming but abandoned house made of stones and surrounded by secular plants of olive trees. They started renovating the house with love, preserving the ancient taste of Liguria. Luisa, a Gourmet Lover and senior member of the Italian Academy of Cuisine, started in 1995 a limited production of high quality extra virgin olive oil for top cuisine and gourmets. The first customer was Hotel Cipriani in Venice. Since then other prestigious hotels and famous chefs decided to buy her oil.

The Galantino family business dates back to 1926, when Vito Galantino had the foresight and determination to acquire a majestic Nineteenth Century mill-house, and turned it into an olive oil mill. Since then, two generations of the Galantino family have run the mill, carrying it to dizzying heights of quality. Today the Galantino Mill uses olives from the Fenice family estate and from 2.000 reliable growers. Careful handing of the olive fruits at the best stage of ripeness, careful selection, washing and crushing in the great stone olive mills, cold pressing and centrifugal separation, enhance the flavour and fragrance of Galantino Extra Virgin Olive Oil. After laboratory analysis and organoleptic assessment, and only then, does our Master of Olive Oil select and certify the oil.

An old Italian proverb says: “ For a good salad we need – the salt of a wise man, the vinegar of a miser, the oil of the altruist – a juggler to toss it and the hungry to eat it” All these characters are to be found at “Il Boschetto”; the wise man expertly conducts; the philanthropist lavishly provides excellent ingredients; the juggler skilfully mixes the ingredients and the miser spares nothing in passion or fantasy: the hungry ultimately enjoy the results!
Three generations of passion. To make such soft and delicate confections, that yield the same fragrance that artisan bakeries can produce, takes special ingredients, a slow and natural rising process, gradual cooling and patience, because good things cannot be rushed. Something that not all businesses can accomplish. But above all, what it takes is three generations of passionate people. Grandfather Tranquillo, the first to fall in love with the art of bread making, passed it on to his son Alessandro. Together they turned the bakery into an actual family-run business with a new workshop that opened in 1969. Dario is now the head of the company with over 75 years of experience and progress. Skillfully mixing simplicity with love for genuine products, time and foresight can yield one-of-a-kind results, because artisan pastry making cannot be rushed: time is needed to exalt and skillfully combine delicate flavors full of history. It is the art of transforming tradition into quality.

Our milling activity began in the mid 1950s when our father, Felice Marino, learned that there was a small mill for sale in the town of Cossano Belbo, complete with the original mill stones and rollers. Fascinated by the milling activity, he decided to buy it. Together with his wife and her parents, he began to produce a range of flours. At the time, it was mainly the roller mill that was used to produce "easy to work" and "fast to bake" flours — a symbol of modern times taking their toll. The products were widely distributed and and used mainly by bakers for bread making.
