Over 2000 years ago, the ancient Romans brought the first olive trees to the upper Lake Garda region. With it’s sheltered geographic location and Mediterranean microclimate due to proximity to Lake Garda, it is one of the northern-most zones for olive cultivation in both Italy and Europe and now boasts a centuries long tradition. The main olive grown is the local Casaliva variety; together with the Frantoio variety, they make up over 95% of the total olive crop. Other varieties present to a lesser degree include Leccino and Pendolino olives, as well as the local Raza, Trepp and Favarol varieties.
The Frantoio di Riva – Italia was founded in 1965, in 1998 it was the first producer of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the DOP Garda Trentino certification, one of the first DOP recognized in Italy. In 2008 the Riva olive press received bio certification for the production of organic olive oil. The actual olive press used at the Frantoio di Riva – Italia is a three-phase continuous press but includes the separate milling of individual batches of olives, resulting in batches of oil from only each individual consignment of olives. All olives are cold-pressed, and temperatures are not allowed to exceed 27°C.
Today the Riva del Garda olive press or Frantoio di Riva – Italia works with a majority of locally grown olives, producing extra virgin olive oil that has won the highest national and international recognition for its unique characteristics. This triumph is a result of several factors, including the following:

Our idea of quality is precisely what led us to create a brand that symbolises just this, in the food sector and in lifestyle, the excellence and the seriousness that have always been at the heart of everything we do and all of our expertise. The range of Fontanara products are the fruit of many years of research, passion and dedication that make us proud to be able to offer these to a clientele that is becoming ever more attached to our brand. 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 prevents 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, 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.
