The Grange Vercelli rice lands of the fertile Po’ valley, whose waters are fed from the Alps of northern Italy, are the historical centre of European rice production.

This high quality organic Italian rice is cultivated by three long established Vercelli rice producing families. Gentle dehusking using the producers’ traditional in-house facility guarantees the lightest shelling. This enables the nutrients of the outer layer and germ to be retained. This method is critical to the final great taste and texture of the cooked rice.

Once dehusked, the rice grains are graded according to colour, quality and size. Only the highest quality products are good enough for Seggiano!

Wild Red rice, otherwise known as Riso Rosso Selvatico, resulted from the casual crossbreeding of black Venus rice with other strains and is now grown as a variety in its own right. This wholegrain red rice is rich in fibre and prized for its colour, slightly sweet, nutty flavour and appetising aroma.

Cooking Tips

This is perfect for cold rice salads or stir-fried with vegetables.

We suggest preparing red rice this way: measure 2 to 3 cups of water for every cup of rice, lightly salt the water and bring to the boil. Cover the pan, lower the heat and boil for about 40 minutes, until the rice is cooked, adding a little more hot water if necessary.
