Our Olive Oil

We produce our olive oil, grown up totally in Cervano and made with love by our family since 1818.

Nothing is put on the trees, only sun and healthy air of lake Garda, we are very proud to have the real Mediterranean taste.

From our trees we extract 3 different kind of oil:

Gargnà: the name come from Gargnano the village under Cervano, it is a particular and very rare type of oil because the full harvest comes only once every 4 years, the taste is fruity and light with olfactory notes of artichoke and almond, this olive oil is produced with pressed olives immediately after the harvest to preserve the fragrance, delicate

Casaliva: the typical autochthonous variety from Lake Garda, intense golden yellow with shades of green, clear, bitter and spicy with hints of green clover, decisive and intense olive oil.

Min√¨ol: the origin of the name come from “Minimum oleum” because the berry is smaller, difficult to collect and the oil product is very rare, light taste

Golf Club Bogliaco

Situated out of Cervano’s gate , close to the hills on the western side of lake Garda, Golf Bogliaco lies in a basin at an altitude of 100 metres, covered with oleander, laurel, cypresses, olive trees and other plants typical of Mediterranean vegetation. The raised position gives a splendid view over almost the full length of the lake and the mountains which surround it. The decidedly mild climate offers the possibility of playing all year round.

Vittoriale Gardone Riviera

vittoriale map

Poet, soldier, hypochondriac and proto-Fascist, Gabriele d’Annunzio (1863‚Äď1938) defies easy definition, and so does his estate. Bombastic, extravagant and unsettling, it’s home to every architectural and decorative excess imaginable and the decor helps shed light on the man. In the 1920s d’Annunzio became a strong supporter of Fascism and Mussolini, while his affairs with wealthy women were legendary.

The amphitheatre is the first major structure one comes across after entering the estate and was clearly based upon classic models, the architect Maroni even visiting Pompeii for inspiration. Its location, like the other buildings of the Vittoriale undeniably offers a majestic view of the Garda lake, it is still used for performances today (Patty Smith, The National, Buena vista social club)
