Between Frassinello, Cella Monte and Rosignano Monferrato lies the Valle Ghenza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for Infernots, and the Valle Ghenza Truffle Truffle Association was founded to preserve and protect its particular territory.
The Ghenza Valley holds, as in a treasure chest, a precious jewel of nature, the Tuber Magnatum Pico, commonly known as White Truffle.
For centuries this typical product of the valley has been sought with passion and constancy by the "Trifulau", the dialectal name of the one who seeks truffles with his faithful friends "Tabui", or truffle dogs.
It is precisely to protect the precious heritage that the controlled truffle cellar of the Ghenza Valley has been created in this particular green area.
Known throughout Italy, the tasty and crumbly Krumiri biscuits are a small delicacy of the Piedmontese tradition that boasts more than a century of history. It seems, in fact, that it was 1878 when Domenico Rossi, their creator, invited his friends to his workshop in Casale Monferrato to let them taste a new specialty of his creation which was given the name of a liqueur at the time particularly appreciated, the Krumiro. It was these biscuits with a unique taste that we all know today and that obtained, between 1886 and 1891, the Patents of Provveditore of the Houses of the Dukes of Aosta, Genoa and the Royal House of Italy.
