Garden Workshops

Cooking, history, culture, agriculture and local products are at the heart of these activities held under the pergola of our ancestral vegetable garden. Every Saturday afternoon, an expert leads one of our garden workshops.

All our senses are engaged since these gatherings combine theory, practice and, of course, tastings.
