A portion of orchard for preserves
The produce of the orchard and the vegetable garden are processed in the workshop of CasaMatilda to become a number of sweet and savoury delicacies like typical antipasti, sauces, fruit juices, jams and much else.
All artisan preserves are handcrafted by Anna and Fabio without preservatives, colorings, thickeners or chemical additives… simply made with genuine ingredients to the original recipes of grandmas of this corner of Italy, just adding much passion!
THE FARMERS: ANNA GARNERI AND FABIO PALLADINO
Casa Matilda was founded in 2008 when Anna and her husband Fabio left their job in business administration and moved to the hills of Langhe. Guided by their love for the land and relying on their experience in food and wine, they started off a project in order to fulfill their need for more authentic human connections, even in business, as well as for genuine tastes and smells – more generally, a need for a genuine environment where to raise their family.
Farmed organically (but not certified), the 5-hectare estate grows fruit and vegetables which are then preserved and bottled according to traditional family recipes.
CasaMatilda means accommodation too: it offers lodging as an agriturismo, so that guests can fully enjoy nature and its produce, be it at breakfast or later during the day with a tasty “merenda sinoira” (a traditional afternoon brunch) with delicacies really produced with zero produce miles.
