An intimate place notable for its delicate tones; and we are not only talking about colours.
The name is evocative of those stores of yesteryear that no longer exist: the local shop or ‘bottega’.
Where relationships were genuine and honest. Where there was mutual respect and a great affinity between those on one side of the counter and those on the other.
Places where you didn’t just go to buy something but also to have a chat and be updated on the latest trend.
A name, Mariella, in honour of the extraordinary lady who has been at Vittorio Moretti’s side since ever.
La Bottega di Mariella is a little treasure chest where you can hide away and enjoy yourself discovering a host of precious items, the result of research that has left no stone uncovered.
It is managed with great competence and passion by Giovanna Tedeschi, expert on fashion and all that can be defined luxury.
Luxury that does not need to be exhibited or broadcast, but which is recognisable in a thousand little details: the craftsmanship of cashmere, the perfect cut of a dress, the suggestion of a fragrance created by an extraordinary "nose", the preciousness of a jewel that is unique because it is handmade.
Her research is unceasing and knows no barriers: from Italy to Vietnam, from the US to India. The best the world has to offer is found here, in this secret little corner of the L’Albereta.
It is no coincidence, therefore, that the Bottega di Mariella is the only place where you can directly purchase the Terra Moretti Group wines: Bellavista, Contadi Castaldi, Petra and Tenuta La Badiola.
On the subject of wine, the Bottega di Mariella is the only place authorised to sell an absolute rarity: Vigna Leone, a pure chardonnay of rare elegance produced by L’Albereta’s private vineyard and vinified by Bellavista.
Not found anywhere else because it has been created exclusively for L’Albereta’s guests, this is its most authentic souvenir.
