The caper plant is a perennial shrub of tropical origin: it is widespread in the Mediterranean area and, in the Aeolian Islands, on the Island of Salina. Harvesting takes place from late May to late July: the so-called capers are the buds of the plant. After harvesting, they are spread out on jute sheets and sorted by size (capers and caperberries). Salina Capers are perfect for enhancing salads, fish or meat dishes, and dressings. Their intense flavor and crunchy texture also make them ideal as garnishes for appetizers and pasta dishes.

Virgona’s Salina Capers are available in Small, Medium, and Large (Caperberries) sizes, in packages of 250 or 500 grams.

The Virgona Farm was established to complement a long winemaking tradition, contributing to the enhancement of the wine production of Salina, given the economic, social, historical, and cultural importance that this sector has always had on the island.
The Aeolian archipelago is shaped like a Ypsilon, and Salina, the ancient Dydime, is located right in the center, the twin island formed by two ancient extinct volcanoes: Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri, now protected by a Natural Reserve. Within the 27 square kilometers of this lush volcanic land, there is a concentration of environmental and landscape resources that constitute a heritage to be fiercely safeguarded.
It is divided into three small municipalities: Malfa on the northern slope, Santa Marina on the eastern coast, and Leni in the southern hinterland; every year it is a coveted destination for thousands of tourists enthusiastic about the beauties that the island offers with its crystal-clear and uncontaminated waters, considered a true paradise for divers; beaches, coves, and inlets for boaters, cliffs sculpted by the sea, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets with kaleidoscopic colors.
Salina is the island that more than others has been able to preserve its rural soul, maintaining the typicality, genuineness, and authenticity of its traditional economy, based on caper cultivation and the production of the famous Malvasia wine.
The dazzling colors of the island and the intense scents are also captured and offered again in the variety of cuisine that offers different interpretations of the local gastronomic tradition.
