Cereal

Vignamaggio’s cereal grains were planted on uncultivated land at the bottom of the valley. Vignamaggio decided to use indigenous and ancient grains like the hard grain Senatore Cappelli and soft grain Verna varieties that have always been planted in this area and are well suited to organic cultivation methods.

Verna and Senatore Cappelli are tall growing grains that produce a lot of straw that is useful for keeping the piglets warm in winter and for mulching the vegetable garden.

Both are stoneground to best retain both nutritional value and distinctive flavour, perfect for the semi whole wheat flour that Vignamaggio’s restaurant uses to create exceptional bread rolls, pizzas and focaccias.

The Senatore Cappelli hard grain is used mainly for the handmade fresh pasta often on the restaurant’s menu.

Fava beans and barley were planted to be used as animal feed during the summer and winter, when acorn season is over and when the pastures have less grazing delicacies on offer.

Posted on Saturday December 19, 2020

The Vignamaggio woods are scattered with paths that wind through a rich, fragrant and welcoming Mediterranean vegetation: the trees are not very large, but healthy and lush. Through their foliage one can glimpse the remains of ancient dry-stone walls, reminders that every corner of this land was once cultivated and that the woods, before the […]
