A Long Tradition For Quality

When in 1160 Barbarossa besieged the city of Milan, he put on fire the surrounding area. It was this event that gave its name "Bruciata" to the current location near Albairate. While flames advanced, only the old mill resisted as it was surrounded by a watercourse. Since 1910, the mill has been in the hands of the Tarantola Family who has planted the rice mill. Today, Riseria Tarantola is one of the most renowned companies in the abbiatense region and is an internationally renowned brand for the goodness of its rice, as well as organic and biodynamic products.
