From fields to our tables.

Our rice is born in the fertile rice fields of Cascina Grampa. Thanks to the homogeneity of the soil, water and microclimate, each variety has a special uniformity of colour, shape, size and consistency of the beans.

The entire production chain in the field, from the choice of seeds to drying and storage, is followed by our company with artisanal care. Only the husking and packaging phases are entrusted to small local companies but always under the rigorous control of RisoTesta. The result is a good, reliable product that is increasingly appreciated even by chefs and connoisseurs.

Our varieties: ABC of rice

for Carnaroli
