The Production Area
Our hazel tree production area is located in the heart of wonderful Tuscia, a region historically suited to cultivating Gentile Romana and Nocchione hazelnuts.
Due to its climatic characteristics and soil structure, the region benefits from elements that guarantee the plantations development, and for this reason it is known worldwide.
A Leading Area,
not just from the vegetation point of view
The Viterbo region, out of the whole Italian Hazelnut Supply Chain, is the foremost area for companies that produce equipment for managing and harvesting hazelnuts.
