Our producer - Tenuta Margherita
Tenuta Margherita in Northern Italy has been producing the best varieties of Italian rice since 1904. Covering an area of 250 hectares in the Desana countryside near Vercelli, one of the most important rice growing areas in Italy, this family business takes care of the whole production process, from cultivation in the paddy field to rice drying and processing with bleaching stones in the company rice mill up to careful packing.
The transformation of paddy rice into white rice, using conical bleaching stones, is a slow and delicate process and still today it is considered the best because grains preserve their amber colour as well as their nutritional value and remain intact and uniform. All the green, broken or imperfect grains are carefully eliminated to obtain very high quality rice with an intense flavour and great consistency.
