In the Torri del Benaco olive groves - the Farm’s historical core -

some centuries-old olive trees of Garda autochthonous cultivars were present;

From these cultivars the Farm’s agronomic varietal plan began to developed,

entirely based on their bond with the Garda territory.


The specialized olive groves of autochthonous Lake Garda cultivars find their ideal environment in the lands of Castion Veronese,

the immediate lake hinterland, at short distance from the farm historical core at Torri del Benaco.

These lands, purchased by Paolo Bonomelli for their morphological characteristics and their extension,

allowed the recovery, development and enhancement of the individual local cultivars under the most suitable conditions.
