Tastiness guaranteed by an unique territory, where the olive tree has been grown for centuries, in the utmost respect for nature
Close your eyes and imagine ancient olive groves, on sunlit ledges, where you can admire centenarian plants. A priceless treasure, guarded and handed down to the present day by sensitive and wise producers able to offer extra virgin olive oils of high quality.
Among the many authocthonous varieties of olive trees we point out to you the Casaliva variety, from which is obtained an extra virgin golden green oil, golden-green in colour, with a delicate flavour and with an aftertaste of green almond, artichoke and aromatic herbs.
An oil full of singularities
Did you know that extra virgin olive oil from Garda Trentino is produced farther to north in the world, beyond the 46th parallel? This is due to the typical Mediterranean climate of Lake Garda!
And not only that: our local olive trees contain a remarkable concentration of polyphenols, the natural antioxidants, essential for keeping ourselves fit.
A successful asset
Many are the awards and prizes, both at national and international level, obtained by the producers for the excellence of their work. A tradition already certified in 1998, with the DOP Garda Trentino (Protected Designation of Origin) label, by the European Community. The municipalities of Arco, Riva del Garda and Tenno are members of the National Association “City of Oil “ and in particular in Arco was inaugurated the “Olive Tree and Alto Garda Trentino Oil“ Academy.
