history

The Bariselli family have been farming in Franciacorta ever since 1898.

Today, Gianbattista and Francesco’s families live in the big country house in the heart of Torbiato di Adro, with their children and grandchildren. In this patriarchal family, work and love for the countryside have been happily passed down for the past five generations. Only if you get to personally know these people can you understand their extraordinary bond, their natural ability to share, the fuel that moves their life project.

The house is open for guided tours to all farmhouse guests and to all those who want to experience the real farming life, get to know the earth and its fruits, be completely overwhelmed by a different and old-style rhythm of life. Guests and friends are always welcomed like family in the big kitchen in front of the big crackling fireplace or, in the summer, in the shade of the cool porch.
