FATTORIA LA VIALLA
La Vialla Estates – Toscana
Fattoria La Vialla is a family run agricultural farm comprising thirty or so hill top farmhouses and is situated in the Chianti Tuscan countryside near Arezzo. Since 1978 the Lo Franco family has looked after its terrain and reared animals, employing biodynamic methods of cultivation throughout its production.
Wine, extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, pasta, sauces, jams and biscuits and typical desserts, are made in its artisan workshops and the guests can assist in its everyday production.
La Vialla and its flavours are genuine – some would say ‘forgotten’ flavours. The care and conservation of the land and its produce is in the hands of the Lo Franco family and its ‘workers’ – who for affection, dedication or for mere pleasure are known as the ‘Viallini’. Research into recipes from the past, avant garde development projects, environmentally friendly technology and energy saving are all an integral part of a life cycle and of the seasonal production of the fruits of the earth.
