WindsetFarms_Chef_DanaReinhardt-1

Join Chef Dana Reinhardt in exploring the incredible bounty of Casa Caponetti in Tuscania, Italy. Casa Caponetti, is situated on a stunning 125 acre olive farm and home to an ancient Etruscan necropolis, comprising one of the largest single ruins on private land.

We will harvest seasonal produce from the extensive biodynamic vegetable gardens (27 varieties of tomatoes!) and use meat from the heritage breed cattle, pigs and chickens located directly on the property. We will learn to make pizza in the wood fire oven; master the tricks of hand-made pasta and forage for wild herbs and mushrooms in the surrounding woodlands.

The trip will also include visits to Trebotti Winery in Orevieto for a wine tour, tasting and dinner; historic Viterbo and it’s perfectly preserved medieval core, San Pelligrino and Tuscania Market and walled city centre. Come and join us for a week of exploration, cooking, learning and laughing.
