Our world in a
red saffron thread
Our products about love
we put in all our preparation
The prized saffron spice is grown in our hills and is transformed in a closed cycle in the company.
The fields in which it grows are not treated with either herbicide nor with any chemical product and each step of the process is carried out by hand without the aid of mechanical or chemical means.
In October, when the saffron blooms, we begin the delicate collection of flowers in the early hours of the morning, when everyone is asleep again, and bearing torches we go in search of these beautiful flowers. As it is being collected and put in wicker baskets, you will start immediately the buffing process in our workshop, where with extreme care and expertise from every flower are the stigmas of the saffron extracts, then dried and packaged.
We decided to leave our saffron stigmas, and not pulverize, to enable you to see the quality and purity of spice. All this attention in the process of cultivation and processing make our saffron a spice that sought, presented in an elegant glass jar, it preserves and embodies all the natural beneficial properties and the best flavor characteristics. The result is a high quality product that connoisseurs appreciate and recommend.

The bulbs that are sold are all productive but of different sizes, starting from 2.5cm to 5cm in diameter. We are registered in the Official Register of Producers in the Piedmont Region Aut. no.0975, the health of our bulbs is controlled by the Regional Plant Protection Office.
Besides saffron we also cultivate fruits with which we make delicious premium jams.
Why choose our jams? For the dedication and love with which we take care of our plants, because every morning the fruits, when they are fully mature, are hand-picked and immediately processed, therefore there are no stages in cold storage which can alter the taste of the fruit. Because in our jams there is only a lot of fruit and a very low-sugar content, no preservatives or thickeners.
The cultivation of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, is based on different varieties of plants through which we get a progressive flowering. This choice allows us to have the ripening of the fruit distributed throughout the season and give us the opportunity to transform the daily harvested fruit and guarantees the high quality of our products. The planted strawberries are of a specific variety crossed with a wild strawberry, the “Mara des bois”, small and sweet, it really is an extraordinary strawberry. Other delicious jams are made with mixed berries, nectarines and also apricots, for which we use an old and very tasty local cultivar, the “Tonda di Costigliole”.
