OUR VEGETABLE GARDEN IN THE SUMMER
Summers for Grandpa Tino are not the same anymore. From rackets and mountaineering boots to spade and rake.
He puts all the passion into it, we pick it up and cook!
His vegetable garden every summer offers us excellent products:
Courgettes, Salad, Green beans, Rocket, Carrots, Leeks, Cabbages, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Celery, Parsley, Basil, etc.
Tasting is believing!
From father to sun, this butcher shop has always been with us.
The meat that we buy is of Piedmontese race bovine born and bred in the province of Cuneo.
Their diet is natural and consists of hay, corn, bran, barley and soy.
In order to support the quality of PIEDMONTESE BOVINE MEAT we joined a supply chain for protection and traceability that links restaurant, butcher, slaughterhouse and breeder. Everybody works respecting the quality with the purpose of offering a trusted product, of excellent value.
Chicken quality is also guaranteed by the project “POLLO FELICE”; it is bred in the Province of Cuneo’s countryside, in a non-captive environment and conforming with their personal needs.

THE APPLE JUICE
In Tetti di Dronero Livia cultivates the land with respect. She doesn’t use any chemical treatment and she pays attention to the maintenance of biodiversity and to the safeguard of autochthon species.
Apples are hand-picked from trees and then they are brought in her artisan laboratory “La Mosterei” where they are washed, minced and pressed.
Juice is mechanically filtered, pasteurised and bottled.
So, only apples, no addition of liquids, preservatives or colourants.
Livia offers another service to the territory: she makes her laboratory available to whoever would like to make juice with his own apples, maintaining the productions alive.
You can taste and buy Silvia’s juice in our hotel.
