It is said that our sense of smell is directly linked to our memory. While you may never have visited Agraria Riva del Garda on the northern shore of Lake Garda in North Italy where ULIVA DOP is produced… chances are the aromas of wet stone, fresh cut herbs, clean apple or toasted almond, stimulate your memory and nostalgia. Expect an experience no less evocative when tasting this flagship Garda Trentino DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Superior Casaliva olives are harvested and pressed at peak early stages and from there every aspect of production is designed to protect the integrity of the finished oil. The flavor is dense, with a complex harmony. This balance makes it readily identifiable as a jewel!

It also holds a number of international distinctions and is recommended by the most widely recognized gastronomic guides. It has become the flagship Garda Trentino DOP Extra Virgin Olive oil.

Meet The Makers
Agraria Riva del Garda won over Randall's heart and stomach at a blind tasting of 100+ EVOOs at Vinitaly. It is not logical that superior EVOO could come from Lake Garda because of how far north it is. However, the soft breezes coming from the south get trapped by the edges of the Dolomite mountains and create an ideal micro-climate.View The Profile
