the “real food mile”

Ever since it opened, Un posto a Milano has chosen to work with farmers, fishermen and breeders who work respecting animals, the land and its ancient traditions. They are courageous, revolutionary and passionate about their work.

Producers who we have discovered and met in person thanks to a direct dialogue which lets us guarantee to our clients the awareness of the products and the traceability of the ingredients, and which underlies the philosophy of the “real FOOD MILE”.

Our dear producers are now more than 100, distributed throughout Italy: we know them one by one and this is why we guarantee for them.

vineyard up the mountains

Vermentino Biancheforme

Azienda Agricola Terre Apuane Marina di Carrara – grapes: Vermentino, Albarola, Malvasia
glass € 5 / bottle € 26

In the heart of the Apuan Alps, this winery produces IGT Candia dei Colli Apuani wines in the autochthonous varieties. This wine is made from vines over 60 years old, through soft pressing, fermentation at controlled temperature and ageing in cement vats for about six months. Markedly acid, it is a mountain wine, «sprayed» by the saltiness of the sea.

Yellow-leaved vineyard up a hill

Derthona Colli Tortonesi Timorasso Doc

Azienda agricola Fiordaliso Volpeglino (AL) – grapes: Timorasso
glass € 5 / bottle € 28

This wine is made from an autochthonous vine of south Piedmont, which risked extinction due to the preference for less difficult vines from an agronomic point of view. A process of development started in the 1980s which has led to the creation of unique white wines. It is a wine with great richness, an intense straw yellow colour, with scents of flint and floral scents softened by a slight lemony note.

sloping terraced vineyard rows

Spergola “Spergle” Rio Rocca

Società agricola Il Farneto Castellarano (RE) – grapes: Spergola
glass € 5 / bottle € 28

A very old autochthonous vine, which has developed and spread thanks to sustainable agriculture respecting the environment. A fine wine, outstandingly savory and with a good persistence.

green yellow grapes hanging from the vines

Prosecco Sur Lie Doc

Cantina Casa Coste Piane Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene (TV) – grapes: Glera
glass € 6 / bottle € 30

This winery is in a historically lively area, in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. The wine is straw yellow in colour, with an intense bouquet with floral scents and notes of white fruit. It is fresh and mineral to the palate.

black grapes hanging from the vines

Il Rosso Masieri

Azienda agricola La Biancara Montebello Vicentino (VI) – grapes: Merlot, Cabernet, Sauvignon
glass € 5 / bottle € 28

This natural wine, ruby red in colour with purple reflections, is extremely easy to drink and gives a pleasant slightly bitter taste in the mouth. Its bouquet recalls violets, cherries and wild berries.
