They are culinary gift ideas that give your family, friends and anyone you know the possibility of tasting typical products that would be hard to find close to home. In fact, Fattoria La Vialla’s products aren’t sold in any shops, they can only be ordered through the catalogue or on the website. The gift packs are studied so you can try the new wine vintages, or send a “gourmet greeting” to a distant friend. There are many different assortments containing wine, olive oil, pecorino cheese and even cold cuts (always from organic agriculture) at some times of year. For the most important festivities, Christmas for example, we produce a number of typical specialities such as Panettone (a soft leavened cake with raisins and candied peel, all certified organic) or sweet, chocolate-covered delights, the Stracci and Brutti ma Buoni.
Some of them are unusual gift ideas, real local specialities – produced in a limited number in La Vialla’s bakery – such as the Panforti or Panpepato that originate from Siena.
