The project

WHO WE ARE

Our company started with the purpose of recovering abandoned lands on the Portofino Promontory. Inspired by a group of local guys, our project has grown while remaining faithful to the territory; working with the land as our grandparents did, carrying out activities that are environmentally friendly and oftentimes employing animals. Our farm It is a living museum of facets of Portofino’s life welcoming visitors to discover and taste its natural treasures.

The revival of traditions

THE IDEA

The idea is simple: to recover abandoned land, to resume traditional cultivation techniques and promote a return to agriculture and animal husbandry that for centuries have been part of our region. Donkeys historically having lived in our territories as the work and life mates of many families, are now being re-integrated into the territory.
In terms of crops, we have recovered and returned to production many local vineyards and olive groves which are very important sources of a generational livelihood that was largely abandoned over the last 30-40 years.
“La Portofinese” was born as a local project, for the local territory.
It produces a range of local products derived exclusively from crops grown and gathered on the Portofino promontory. The strength of this project comes from it’s revolving around the cultivation of the soil and the recovery of abandoned lands.

WHAT DO WE DO

Craft beer

The project of the first Portofinese craft beer was born from a simple bet; no one had ever cultivated Hops on the hillsides above Portofino, and no one had ever produced a craft beer on the promontory.

Local Honey

The production of honey, propolis and pollen from the Portofino Promontory is born from the bee forest located in the Prato area, over the Bay of the English.

Orchard and Vegetable garden

Coming soon.

Animals

Our idea is to continue to further animate the mountains of Portofino: with donkeys, goats, chickens, geese and chickens.
