Il Mulino della Porta di Sotto is a melting pot of history, culture, tradition and food and wine. Here the ancient vaults of the sixteenth century mill host the cheese of fossa and enchant the visitors of Mondaino, here the story that transpires from the ancient and thick walls bewitches who has the pleasure to cross the threshold, here the stories of the cheese makers fascinate and transport in a world lost, here palates in search of lost flavors find a home. It is at the Mill of the Porta di Sotto that the Fossa di Mondaino cheese is refined, dairy excellence of this corner of Romagna, a step away from the lands of the Montefeltro, where different cultures and influences come together to create an unforgettable union to savor and enjoy with all the senses.

At the Biodinamica Mara Estate the vines grow accompanied by classical music: strings, winds and musical chords spread in the air and embrace the plants that thrive among the harmonies of Mozart, as in a boundless concert hall. Works of art are in perfect harmony in the natural landscape of Tenuta Mara, in an unparalleled artistic path en plein air: to welcome guests, but also to watch over the entrance of the Estate, is the arch of the round of Besana by Mauro Staccioli, created on the occasion of the Milanese exhibition Besana '80.
