A day at La Raia
La Raia is a biodynamic farm, Demeter certified since 2007
For over half a century the international Demeter trademark has been granting the correct implementation of the biodynamic principles to cultivations and food productions all over the world. Controls on the conformity to such principles and to the provided procedures are constant.
In particular, as far as wine is concerned, Demeter certification attests not only the quality of grapes, but also of all the processes of winemaking and of the winery itself. The commitment to the respect for nature goes thus throughout the entire productive process, to deliver to consumers a biodynamic wine, peculiar expression of the terroir and exclusive product of nature’s will.
La Raia’s winery distinguishes for its exclusive biodynamic piedmont wine production which highly respects the international certification criteria.
Living La Raia
The byodinamic culture
The biodynamic method, which is becoming more and more popular all over the world, encourages to consider the farm as a single organism where human activities are in perfect harmony with plants and animals.
Gavi’s traditional cuisine, historically contaminated by elements from Liguria and Piedmont, has been revised by chef Tommaso Arrigoni in the menu served at aró, Locanda La Raia’s restaurant.
A unique ecosystem of nature
180 hectares of cultivation and pastures that protect numerous animal species: La raia is a true supporter of biodiversity.
