The Lupatelli family created Morello Austera to celebrate their love and respect for their native lands in the Marche region of Italy. After discovering that their beloved Amarena di Cantiano cherries were disappearing, they felt it their duty to re-introduce this incredible fruit. They began growing local varieties of cherries in 2000. Cherries, along with mulberries and apples, are now grown all over their six hectares of land. The microclimate of the farm is a perfect environment to grow their beloved fruit. They pick and process the cherries at their own facility on the property. The cherries are grown without the use of pesticides and bees are used to pollinate the trees. Ideal on fruits salad, ice cream or with panna cotta.
