Frantoio di Riva
Riva del Garda, Trentino-Alto Adige
 

Agraria Riva del Garda was founded in 1926, it's a collection of 1800 olive growers, 300 grape growers and 80 farmers who produce local products from cheese to salumi. It’s a great example of farmers working together in an integrated economic network to produce quality local products. It was a fantastic experience visiting them in 2012 and witness the collaborative effort first hand. While the quality of all their products is very high, the olive oil is something even more special. The Casaliva olive variety is only found here, on the north-shore of Lake Garda. Garda creates a moderate microclimate where the olive oil can thrive in the mountain environment.See more

These are some of the most northerly planted olive trees in Europe that are planted on steep terraces and are divided between hundreds of growers who are all driven to deliver the highest quality fruit to the Agaria. A strict selection occurs at the mill, which is a state of the art, three-phase continuous operation, and all of the oil is produced and bottled on site. These oils are as elegant and creamy as Puglian oils are intense and pungent; they are the perfect counterpoint to the more Mediterranean styles and showcase the variety of flavor and texture available in real Italian olive oil. The awards Agraria Riva del Garda has acquired for their oils is too long to list, but maybe the most significant achievement was the dedication in 1998 of one of the first Italian DOP for olive oil, it was given to this small appelation when they were the only active mill in the area. The Frantoio di Riva Olive oils from Garda have always been something very rare and very special.
