Extra virgin: pleasure and well-being

About Us,

Yesterday we participated with our Dop Marchese di Canossa  to the event at the headquarters of Confagricoltura – Rome entitled “Olive oil: the pleasure of well-being.” There were about thirty producers and we were able to taste all the excellent extra virgin olive oils of the various Italian regions. There has been talk of the countless varieties of olives in Italy, the need to defend and pass on our heritage and, above all, the extra virgin olive oil characteristics that we often forget as consumers: it is effective in the prevention of arterial disorders and heart, lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood, has an anti-aging function as it is rich in vitamin E, beta-carotene (provitamin a) and antioxidants, such as phenolic compounds. It protects against decalcification and osteoporosis and has an effective preventive action against breast cancer and those of the gastrointestinal tract.

So the important thing is to protect and to know what we eat, and the extra virgin olive oil has the characteristics that increase both the pleasure and our well-being.

Great awards for the Fondo Brè

Awards,

It has been a super June for us!

We began on June 11th with “L’Oro del Benàco”, competition held by the Consortium Oil Garda Dop that rewards the best oils on the Garda lake, where our Fondo Brè won a prestigious second place.

While yesterday in Lazise, it has been held the award ceremony of the  Verona Olive Oil Contest, the first competition organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Verona dedicated to extravirgin oil.

Out of 33 participants evaluated by eight Aipo‘s professional tasters, we ranked second, and all the oils will be published on the Verona Wine Top guide.

Two great rewards, also considering the difficult year we’ve been through. There is still room for improvement and this will move us to do even better… See you next year!

Fondo Brè is worth to taste – Corriere della Sera

Press review,

Fondo Brè is in the list of the oils to to taste made by La Cucina – Corriere della Sera ,

In the world of oil, the king is His Majesty the virgin olive oil. But there are many peculiarities to discover, as the oils obtained from seeds or flavored ones. Or the unusual productions, which are made on the mountains, in the lands of an historic Italian family (the Canossa) or by trees saved by youth associations. We’ve asked Luigi Caricato, creator of Olio Officina Food Festival, to show us the most unusual that is worth to taste. 

Thank you!
