EXPERIENCE: Tour and Tasting

Citrus grove Tour & Nonna Tonia's Limoncello

A Unique Experience

First of all, a "Citrus grove Tour" in the garden in the garden and then you will be revealed the "secret" recipe with which Nonna Tonia has been preparing her Limoncello for 50 years. You enter the centuries-old citrus grove, a typical Vesuvian garden and from here you will be transported back in time through the story of anecdotes and legends that surround it. Then, we will dedicate ourselves to the research and collection of the best lemons and, then we will move on to the implementation of the recipe, to the various steps of the manufacturing process, a manual and practical moment to which the participants are also invited: from the cutting of the skins to their infusion alcohol, until filtering and storage in glass bottles where the infusion will rest for weeks before being ready. I also show you where to store it, in which glasses to serve it, how to taste it, obviously using Limoncello prepared previously, and finally we compare it "Blindfolded" with other Limoncello to discover its Uniqueness...!

In the frame of the typical Vesuvian citrus grove 

The experience takes place in the garden of the family palace, 19th century residence, a practicable oasis of greenery and relaxation, which you certainly wouldn't expect in the city center!

You enter the entrance hall of the Palace through a portal made of "Piperno", an ancient Vesuvian lava stone which surmounts a door made of Walnut and Chestnut with, at the top, decorative iron elements. At the bottom, passing a wrought iron gate, you enter the garden ...a practicable oasis of greenery and relaxation, which, of course, you wouldn't expect in the city center! Our family fought to prevent it from becoming a skyscraper, first, a parking lot, then. The continuous production of Limoncello has become the affirmation of the family's cultural identity and environmental sensitivity.Leading the Guests, among the citrus fruits, the black earth and the lava stone walls, telling them anecdotes, fills us with pride.
