A long experience in rice cultivation matured over five generations, making of a job a real culture asking for continuous improvement. Perinotti & Conte - Owners

Back five generations the Perinotti Family cultivates rice in the Grange Vercellesi area in Piedmont. A life dedicated to rediscover varieties of native rice: an ambitious choice in an historic period in which standardization rules.

Gli Aironi brand's name means herons, birds that stand out also in the company logo, formerly in way of extinction and now returned in great numbers in the Grange, confirming the company's attention to environmental sustainability. An other proof is the work done to hydraulic works that has allowed to reduce to the minimum the usage of chemical products.
