What to expect
Discovering the ancient art of cultivating medicinal herbs and aromatic plants in Trentino! Walk on the path along the “Vecchi Mestieri” route in Grumes di Altavalle and reach the hut immersed in the uncontaminated woods of the Cembra Valley. We are waiting for you with herbal teas and natural syrups to let you know how to grow a medicinal plant and all about the beneficial properties of medicinal plants.
Our farm is specialised in the cultivation of aromatic plants and top medicinal plants. We also grow and process small fruits, including spontaneous species. In addition to the cultivation of the most common medicinal herbs (mint, lemon balm, calendula, cornflower, monarda, sage, thyme, lemongrass, lavender, chamomile…), we have chosen to grow more particular plants as medicine such as sea buckthorn and aronia. In order to respect biodiversity, we use small plots to grow each cultivated species of aromatic plants and medicinal herbs.
At the end of this amazing experience, enjoy a pleasant walk of about thirty minutes to reach panoramic terrace overlooking the wonderful terraced vineyards of the Cembra Valley.
A tasty apetitif awaits you. You will taste local cured meats, cheeses and flavoured caciotta, honey and jams, paired with a glass of wine from the Cembra Valley.

A varied landscape, rich in alpine lakes and coniferous forests, which the inhabitants shaped while preserving its wild beauty. Witness and soul of the Valley itself is the stunning terraced landscape with over seven hundred kilometres of dry-stone walls, where vineyards have found a favourable habitat to the growing of vines since Etruscan times.
