The Vegetable Garden

At Potentino we have decided to grow and process our own vegetables and fruit. We make pickles, jams and preserves in order to become as self-sufficient as possible. In 2016, we started a new project on an idyllic plot of land on the other side of the river where the soil is more suited to growing vegetables.

This plot of land has long been a part of our lives- it belonged to our great friend Moreno, one of the local mountain singers the Cardellini. We helped pick his grapes each year which was always follwed by a huge feast and much merriment. We will be making a special Cuvée from his grapes which will be called "Il Giardino di Moreno". There is even an ancient winemaking stone there.
