Passion for a territory

By purchasing lagAlpi's products, you directly support all those alpine realities with an original and traditional soul.


lagAlpi products are a real treat and are genuine and authentic. I found an unobtainable grappa that I had been looking for for a long time and I was delighted. I recommend trying all the honey varieties!


My children gave me a wonderful present: a basket full of delicacies from lagAlpi. I discovered many ingredients I didn't know about, such as apricot vinegar, which is now a must on the table, and I made a delicious risotto with their rice. I am looking forward to the new order.
