  • A record-breaking biodynamic oil at the Grand Hotel

    The best biodynamic extra virgin olive oil of Lombardy comes from the Upper Garda Park: it is signed by the Giuliana Seminario company, which this year won a double gold medal at the 21st edition of the Andria “Biol Prize”, dedicated to the best organic productions of the national territory. The prestigious award went to both the Monocultivar Casaliva and the Blend: the latter was then also decreed best label at the regional level. Two products of absolute excellence in short, that you can also enjoy at Giardino dei Limoni, the à la carte restaurant of Grand Hotel Gardone. The Seminario company is one of the few in the oil field actually practicing biodynamic agriculture in Garda and Lombardy: a choice that comes from a great love for the land, and that applies to both the owned olive trees in the towns of Gargnano and Toscolano , located respectively in the villages of Fornico and Vigole and 400 meters high with a total of 2 hectares and about 500 plants, some of which are centuries old. Hence come the two company’s oils, which won several awards at national level.

    The extra virgin olive oil from Lake Garda has met great success all over the world. One of the most famous representatives is Mr. Gianfranco Comincioli from Puegnago, a wine and olive oil producer. He produces wine and oils of high quality that have been recognized by experts. His oil awarded by Gambero Rosso, an Italian food and wine magazine. In the prestigious magazine “Oli d’Italia” of Gambero Rosso two of his oils have obtained three leaves, that is the maximum score: the Monocultivar Casaliva and the Monocultivar Lecino Denocciolato. Mr. Comincioli is one of the pioneer in olive growing on Lake Garda: he was one of the first company to valorise the different variety of oil thanks to different pressings. He has opted for the pitted olive pressing: a complex procedure that gives sweetness to oil. In this way an oil can get its unique aroma and taste. So, you can try this special extra virgin olive oil by Comincioli at our restaurant à la carte “Il Giardino dei Limoni”. We can say that this is the gold of Lake Garda.
