The Farm Picnic
Zero km cuisine and childrens’ laboratories
Only a short distance from Rome, on the Appian Way, there is Fiorano’s Farm. It’s a place rich in history, where respect for nature and love of wine are harmoniously fused in one. The Prince Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi was the first to ever believe in the potential of this place, in the soil that was so rich that it gave a wine that was appreciates in Italy and in the whole world. After many years since his death, his three grand-daughters have revived their grandfather’s project starting a new cycle.
The biological restaurant is immersed in the rich nature of the countryside around Fattoria di Fiorano and has been dedicated to the Prince Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi, according to the wish of his three grand-daughters who inherited the winery. The menu is perfectly combined with the superb wine the Farm produces and is inspired by the week’s vegetable garden’s harvest, which is only 20 m from the kitchen. The simple but well-cared-for style and the familiar and kind welcome you will receive make it the perfect place to rediscover the emotion of sharing the table on special or traditional occasions. All ingredients are exclusively produced in the Farm with biological growing techniques: extravirgin olive oil, vegetables, honey and jams, wine, bread, cereals, flours, cheese, tomato sauce, etc.
Guided visit of the Farm: historical vinyard, cereal growing, biological vegetable garden, wine cellar, barrique cellar, chicken pens, the dairy, the shop. The visitors will then be accompanied to pick-up their picnic baskets and blankets to put on the ground. The visitors can freely choose where to have their pic nic: under the olive trees near the historical vineyard, in the woods or at the tables on front of the haystack labirynth. The visitors will be given a pic nic basket with food and cutlery and a blanket to put on the ground.
