Caperberries are the flavorful fruits of the caper plant: they have a small, roundish shape, resembling small berries or seeds. They are usually green or light brown in color and have a firm and crunchy texture. Caperberries can be used as a condiment for salads, fish dishes, or meat dishes. Their acidity and crunchy texture make them excellent for enhancing sauces and tomato-based dishes.

The Virgona agricultural company arises as a completion of a long enological 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 has the shape of a Ypsilon, and right in the center lies Salina, the ancient Dydime, the twin island formed by two ancient extinct volcanoes: Monte Fossa delle Felci and Monte dei Porri, now protected by a Natural Reserve. In 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.
