Monica Farese has lived and worked with her family in the Netherlands for 14 years but is originally from Rome, Italy. Good food and cooking are her greatest passions. Since childhood, she has been taught by her grandmother how to prepare, cook, and serve delicious Italian food. Andrea is her right hand in the kitchen. He comes from Girasole in Sardinia and has been working with us in the monastery since last year. Andrea has taken Sardinian food culture and flavours of the sunny south of Italy and added them to our menus… Buon Appetito.

When you think of Italian wine, maybe a Chianti, Valpolicella or a Barolo pops into mind. But have you ever acquainted yourself with Passarella, Pecorino or Esperanto? These last three wines belong to the increasingly popular winery Ciù Ciù. Asia, Canada and the US have already discovered this winery, and the popularity of this traditional and organic winery is also growing in the Netherlands.


Organic wines from authentic, indigenous grape varieties and made using the most modern techniques, these are the wines of the house Ciù Ciù. A traditional winery that slowly conquers the world from the Italian Marche (Le Marche). And that is not surprising, because quality is paramount—available per bottle: Rosato (Rosè), Bianco (White), Rosso (Red).
