…since I was a small child I dreamt of becoming a chef!
For me there was no other choice…

Then when I was eighteen, I had another dream: to produce everything I cooked.

The castle where my father was born would be the perfect setting
to merge culture with hospitality…
and this dream came true when we bought the castle when I was thirty years old.

After twenty years, the renovations are now complete.

And now almost all my dreams have come true…
The last one that remains is of course the most difficult, the most important…
To create a grand restaurant to showcase what we produce
and the gastronomic culture of my homeland!

Just as I promised my mother…

To work towards my dreams, in silence and with humility.
