Farming

Historically, the Reschio Estate had been farmed by hand along terraces immediately surrounding the fifty farmhouses. Tobacco was cultivated, some food crops, olive groves and, mulberry trees to feed the silk worms resident in the castle and a few head of cattle. When the land was abandoned in the late 1970’s, it was left fallow until the Bolza family acquired the Estate in 1994. It was important that the agriculture chosen reflected the family’s ethos of conserving and preserving the land, letting progress evolve in an organic way and always in ways that would complete the circle. Nearly three decades on, we grow all the grain required for the horses’ feed, sufficient hay for their, and our chickens’ needs. The vines and olive groves are managed efficiently and we make and bottle wines for our own Estate label as well as for some of our House owners. We grow wheat which is taken to a nearby water mill and the flour returned in great sacks for use in Reschio’s restaurant kitchens. It is important to us to reduce the food kilometres, growing ingredients and buying from our near neighbours. It tastes better and just makes better sense
