A bit of history
Riso buono rice produced in Casalbeltrame by the Azienda Agricola la Mondina, owned by the family of Luigi and Carlo Guidobono Cavalchini, has unique organoleptic and nutritional qualities and a long-standing tradition.
A tradition that goes back in time, to the late 17th century, when the Gautieri noble family, after leaving the county of Nice, settled in these areas around Novara, introducing over the years significant improvements, especially regarding irrigation methods and cultivation techniques. A tradition that has continued with time, following several hereditary successions, with the marquises Cuttica di Cassine and, currently, with the barons Guidobono Cavalchini.
Tradition draws its strength not only from the passing of time: it becomes a real driving force when it goes hand in hand with the hard work of generations, with a sense of belonging to the land, with love and absolute respect for nature, with a commitment to reach increasingly high-quality levels.
