Marco has a genuine and personable smile.
He reminds us that the inhabitants of this area, Viola Castello (Piedmont), call themselves “montagnin“:
tenacious, who face challenges with stubbornness and passion.
Just like Marco, who welcomes every challenge as an opportunity.
The fruit of his labor tells the peculiarities of his region where the chestnuts are king.
Viola Castello does indeed offer an astonishing variety of acres of chestnut groves.
The atmosphere is unique, very charming and in perfect balance between worldly nature and human work.
By Marco we find the Garessina chestnut, sweet, tender and, according to many experts, the best dry chestnut ever.
It is between these forests that Marco has found his passion and takes care of the processing of the Garessina chestnut following the old tradition: harvest, selection, drying and transformation.
If you are a chestnut and mountain lover, visit Piedmont and have a walk with Marco between the chestnut grove.
