If you pass between the months of October and November from Lake Garda it will be very easy for you to meet entire families intent on harvesting olives.

You will be able to observe the nets on the ground, the single-up stairs on which to climb to reach the highest branches, a series of vibrating tools to make the olives fall without damaging the plants. But the thing that I want to underline in the midst of all the technology that is evolving is above all this: the oldest and most effective means are always the hands. Those rakes full of fingers that delicately come to detach even the most rebellious olive!

So the Garda oil that many of us consume on a daily basis is not just a delicacy for the palate. It brings with it the love and dedication of all the gestures I have just described. Bring the laughter and confidences of shared work. It brings the satisfaction of continuing a great tradition that makes Lake Garda unique and special: Garda DOP extra virgin olive oil.

Garda DOP extra virgin olive oil: what are its characteristics?

The Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Garda Dop is produced in the provinces of Brescia, Verona, Trento and Mantua.

The cultivation of the olive tree on the shores of Lake Garda has ancient origins and traditions.

The Garda populations have cultivated olive trees since Roman times, so much so that writers such as Catullo, D’Annunzio, Goethe and Carducci have told of their presence.

The Garda oil, thanks to the favorable Mediterranean micro climate of the area, is the oil produced further north in the world.

Extra virgin olive oil Garda DOP is distinguished from extra virgin olive oils of other origins for its elegant and delicate flavor and for the light and characteristic almond aftertaste.

The main varieties (cultivars) used for the production of Garda DOP are Casaliva or Drizzar, Lezzo, Favarol, Razza, Rossanel, Fort, Morcai, Pendolino, all typical of the Garda area.

Oil Garda DOP, in particular, has the following characteristics:

  • intense to marked golden-green color, due to the high content of chlorophyll;
  • delicate fruity scent;
  • soft taste with a typical almond aftertaste;
  • maximum acidity in oleic acid equal to or less than 0.5% (higher values are not allowed than for other extra virgin oils are allowed).

Thanks to its unique characteristics, which make it truly versatile in the kitchen, Garda DOP oil is used in many recipes. The delicate flavor in fact enhances the dishes without covering the taste. Delicious both raw and cooked, it is the ideal ingredient to be used for fish-based dishes, white meats, carpaccio, raw and cooked vegetables, dips, legumes, fresh or semi-aged cheeses. Garda DOP oil is also excellent for the preparation of desserts, paired with chocolate, with sorbets and ice cream.

It is also used in cosmetics for its high nourishing and moisturizing value.
