Back five generations the Perinotti Family cultivates rice in the Grange Vercellesi, a life dedicated to the research of the excellence and to rediscover varieties of native rice: a courageous and ambitious choice taken in an historic period in which standardization would have been a safer way. The best lots are now packed with the “Gli Aironi” brand: the same birds that stand out also in the company logo, formerly in way of extinction and now returned in great numbers in the Grange, confirming a renewed environmental sensitivity. The founding Company’s principles are the attention to the environment and the sustainability: since years the family Perinotti uses methods of cultivation of reduced environmental impact and experience innovative techniques. Past and present, tradition and innovation; with the work done by the past generations for the improvement of the crops conditions, for example with hydraulic works that has allowed to reduce to the minimum the usage of chemical products; with the experimentation of the today’s generation that has allowed the attainment of purity and of the variety uniformity, great company treasure.
