The “Bottega dei Sapori” took shape from a conservative restoration of the old inn and tavern cellar, where you will also find the complex of three apartments, called “La Campagnola”.
This is where they used to produce wine from the local grape vines, which were cultivated in the “terraces” of the lemon grove, since lemon cultivation had begun to decline in the early 1900s. There is still evidence of such practices: a grape press, a vaporiser from the 1930s used to introduce steam into the barrels and stabilise the wooden slats, barrels, demijohns, old work tables, and shelves made with antique axes to cover the lemon trees.
