The Estate

La tenuta
In the green treasure trove of ancient woods, rich in waterways, protected to the north by the hills that slope gently down to the plain of Verona, in a picturesque natural amphitheater, is the Park of Musella in San Martino Buon Albergo.
In the frame of this natural oasis born Fontanara: an olive groove of more than 3000 plants of old and new generation.
The unique microclimate, the considerable quality of land, a modern irrigation system guarantee the high quality of the production.
Everything remains in compliance with the traditional cultivation, sublimated in manual harvesting and crushing in the day.
 

The Oil Press

Il frantoio

Every day our oil press, using a cold extraction system, crushes not only our olives, but also those sent to us by farmers in our area as well as from other parts of Italy.This limits any contact with oxygen between pressing and storage which, under a strict nitrogen environment, keeps our extra virgin olive oil both intact and undamaged.
This type of processing, one of the first of its kind in Italy, is the result of years of research undertaken with the sole intention of safeguarding one of Italy’s noblest and best known food products.
