Hazelnuts, treasures of Tuscia

Do you know that the Province of Viterbo is the main hazelnut productive area in Italy?

You will visit the farm, where I take care of the vineyards, olive trees and hazels with passion every day. You will discover our hazel groves and you will learn that the most widespread variety in Tuscia is the “Tonda Gentile Romana”.

We will show you the innovative workshop inside the farm.

You will taste our products: hazelnut spreads with a high percentage of hazelnuts, small amounts of sugar and no added oils (dark with 60% of hazelnuts, spreads with 65% of hazelnuts and with 70% of hazelnuts, the spread with dried raspberries and the one with hemp seeds), extra virgin olive oil and wine, as well as other specialities from Tuscia.


The Food Expert: my passion is my land. I inherited it from my grandfather who in the early 1900s, in Civita Castellana in the Province of Viterbo, started a 40-hectare farm. In the 1980s after a study and training period in Piedmont, I decided to make changes to my family business by planting vines, olive trees and hazels. I produce hazelnut spreads, chocolate and two different extra virgin olive oils.

My passion is my land. I inherited it from my grandfather who in the early 1900s, in Civita Castellana in the Province of Viterbo, started a 40-hectare farm, partly arable and partly pasture land.

In the 1980s after a study and training period in Piedmont, I decided to make changes to my family business by planting vines, olive trees and hazels. The Province of Viterbo is in fact the main hazelnut productive area in Italy: the most widespread variety is the “Tonda Gentile Romana”.

Inside the farm, I have recently opened an innovative workshop where I produce three hazelnut spreads with a high percentage of hazelnuts, small amounts of sugar and no added oils. Our hazelnuts are a blend of “Nocciola Gentile Romana”, “Nocchione” and “Nocciola Rosa”.

I also produce chocolate and two different extra virgin olive oils: one from Canino olives, very delicate and balanced, the other from a blend of Leccino, Maurino and Frantoio olives, with a more intense and bitter taste.
