PEQ Agri

sprang from our urge to take care of our land and the need to re-discover Nature.
Our mission is to honour our land and everything it gives us and to protect it and all its bounty.

Like the farms of old, we produce a little bit of everything and seek ways to protect the environment. We use traditional recipes when preparing our dishes and lots of passion when working our vineyards and gardens. We believe these values, which are ever harder to find in the chaos of modern life, still have a place in this world.

Natural produce and simple artesanal food processing drive our project.

We have no promises to keep or strict rules to follow, only the desire to appreciate the land we work and what it can yield, to find people with whom to share our dream and to find balance and sustainability in years to come; ethical practices are our founding principle.

Our company

With over 30 hectares of cultivated land, we operate in the agricultural, viticulture and hospitality sectors.

Our cultivated land covers various areas of the Western Ligurian Riviera, including Andora and the surrounding inland area, Tovo San Giacomo, Cervo, Pornassio and Imperia.

Reclaiming abandoned farmland

Most of our cultivated land has been reclaimed, as it had been abandoned, lain fallow and had often turned to forest.

Through a reclamation project that includes water regimentation and the restoration of ancient stone walls, characteristic of the Ligurian landscape, we are committed to enhancing the flora of our beautiful Andora valley.

Our vineyards and our wineries

Our Cascina Praié, Lupi and Guglierame brands are expressions of excellence, quality and our passion for observing traditional Ligurian viticulture
Eighteen hectares of vineyards

We produce only high-quality wines from our vineyards located in various areas of the Western Ligurian Riviera, mainly in Andora, Albenga and Imperia. The soil in each area has specific geological and climatic features.

A unique and wonderful landscape, where the green hills covered with vineyards overlook the intense blue of the Ligurian Sea.

Ligurian native vines

We cultivate only vines native to Liguria: Pigato, Vermentino, Rossese, Grenache, Ormeasco di Pornassio, and the less well-known but equally appreciated, Lumassina.

Our farms and our produce

Because we value biodiversity, all our productions vary with the uniqueness of the soil and its microclimate.
Organic farming

Following the best practices of organic and biodynamic agriculture, we grow a large variety of vegetables in our three gardens, including trombette (courgettes typical of the Albenga area) and the Belendina di Andora onion, a Slow Food presidium.

Our animals

We have chickens, bees, goats, sheep and other animals and we take care of them with great passion and love, always careful to guarantee them a healthy diet in a safe and healthy environment.

Multi-purpose workshop

Some of the products derived from our harvest are transformed in our multi-purpose ‘workshop’ to create gastronomic delights. You can taste our preserves, honey, cheeses and cured meats in our restaurants or buy them directly from our sales points.

Our olive groves

Our organic olive groves are located on an area of ​​over 10
hectares of typical terraces that characterise
and distinguish the Ligurian landscape.

As in olden days, our Taggiasca olive trees now grow along the rows of handmade stone walls.

Almost all of our olive groves have been reclaimed from abandoned land that we have cleared to give new life to the surrounding landscape.

Using only our own Taggiasca olives, we produce extra virgin olive oil through a cold pressing process that preserves their extraordinary organoleptic properties.
