Vegetable Gardens & Orchards
Vignamaggio’s organic fruit orchards are set on various sites on the Piano di Montagliari floodplain, a quiet and uncontaminated area along the Greve River. Plum, apple, apricot, pear and pomegranate orchards are alternated with fields of grain. On the coolest part of the farm, bordering the forest and river, we have our berry orchard with blackberries, raspberries and currants.
Each year, in the area around Case all’Orto, we plant seasonal vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes, onions, basil and other aromatic herbs. Between the sunny terraces of Vitigliano one can spot the artichoke plantation that treats us to its exquisite organic artichokes every spring.
Fruit, herbs and fresh vegetables are handpicked every day and served to our hotel guests, or used to make delicious jams, preserves or exquisite spirits.
