Virna welcomes us into her home in Castellina in Chianta, a small town that dates back to the Etruscan era, high in the Chianti hills. Virna’s typical Tuscan house sits harmoniously with the local flora and fauna. This beautiful setting, home to the famous Gallo Nero vineyards, our Cesarina dedicates her life to her two greatest passions: cooking and horses.
Virna loves spending her free time making fruit conserves, preserving vegetables in olive oil, plum tomato confit, caramellised figs and brandied cherries, as well as any other delicious treats from her partner’s garden.
