Azienda Agricola Tiare dal Gjal
Fabio Bolzicco of Azienda Agricola Biologica Tiare dal Gjal in Corno di Rosazzo farms only a few miles from the Slovenia border. He has only been farming ten years, five of which organically. Fabio sells 99% of his produce at a farm stand on his farm.

This is close to the area of Italy where the lovely Rosa di Gorizia grows, which has only been popular for about 10 years but described in books from Austrian era in 1800’s. Fabio likes to grow it because gets better price than Treviso Tardivo because it is not grown by larger scale farmers, thus there is less supply.

To clarify any confusion, Rosa di Gorizia is a protected name which reflects it has been grown in Gorizia comune (municipality) in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy. Farmers that grow this same plant in another area name it for that particular place, thus Fabio’s is Rosa di Gjal. This concept is similar to Vidalia onions. What makes that onion a Vidalia is the place it is grown, not the particular variety.
