In 1856 was established, in Cortemilia – Cuneo – FRATELLI CAFFA company which was the first food company specialized in working the Gentle Round Hazelnut of Piedmont and today it is the most famous one!
Tasting a sweet nut specialty here is like going back in times, 160 years of history and six generations of a great bond between the territory and family traditions Caffa brothers achieved their excellence thanks to the careful selection of the best Piedmont hazelnuts together with modern technology and constant controls.
What a funny story, once Cortemilia was famous for its silk trade, the biggest of Langhe region, after Alba. Caffa family once owned a grocery shop in the city center. They used to sell a little bit of everything, and trade barbera and dolcetto to South America. When the Royal Decree came out though, everything changed! Luckily for us!
