TRIFOLAU FOR A DAY

The Jewel of our Lands

The Cascina is located on the rolling hills of Monferrato Ovadese, an area which, in addition to being very renowned for its wines, is no less famous for its prized white truffle. Everyone agrees on the extraordinary aroma and quality of the white truffles of these lands, true delicacies highly appreciated in the past, think of Gioacchino Rossini, who defined the truffle of these hills as "The Mozart of mushrooms". In a splendid rural context that takes you back to the past, our farmhouse boasts a natural reserve of white truffles.

MENTALISM EXPERIENCE

Think what would happen if someone managed to open the door to your subconscious, the same door that allows access to your imagination, thoughts, your deepest emotions!

Our sole aim is to make our spectators experience a new emotion, enter their memories thanks to sensations they have never felt before. A Mentalist does not play, but experiments, always leaving a veil of mystery in every experiment he does.

Daniele Losquadro and Pasquale Buonanno, Mentalist duo.

There are few couples in the world who practice Mentalism.

The choice to create a duo was born from the complicity of one being the other's support, one the other's missing piece.

If you are organizing your event in an evocative location from the past, such as an 18th century villa, or a castle, a museum, the "Back in Time" show certainly combines science and the occult in a Steampunk mood .

The "Moderno & Scientifico" show adapts to the modernity of the location, focusing the show on the application of psychological, mind reading and Cold Reading techniques.

50 SHADES OF RUCHE'

Ruché is a centuries-old vine; its history is not known exactly, but it is certainly one of the most interesting and dynamic native Piedmontese vines. There are various legends about his name, with one in particular which seems the most reliable. It is said that in a farmhouse, called "Rocca", some friars vinified this sweet wine to give to the inhabitants of the nearby Poggio castle: hence the origin of the term Ruchè. It sprouts slightly later than other vines, with a brighter green vegetation and denser shoots. It produces a long, sparse bunch, with round grapes and many seeds. Always very sweet and very early grapes.

It can be drunk vintage or even aged. Visit to the production cellar and tasting of 4 Ruche' paired with local salami and cheese. An experience that can be completed with a visit to Frassinello Monferrato and a visit to the Castle or Vignale Monferrato with truffle hunting, quad biking or e-bike rental for a "walk" among the vineyards and the rolling hills of Monferrato.
