About Azienda Agraria Viola:
There is a magical piece of land in Umbria between Assisi and Spoleto on the hills of Foligno. This is the home of the family Viola. The tail of the Viola Olive Oil begins in the early 19th century when Biagio and Lucia passed their love and passion for the olive trees to their son Ferdinando. Years passed by, then the moment came when Diamante, Ferdinando's son turned the family's passion for olives grove into a small family business. Biagio Viola son of Diamante made sure that the company will prosper while passing the legacy of the family Viola to the next generation to Marco. Marco understood the modern days' changes as well as carried on the family’s legacy and traditions with care. With his professionalism and respect for the environment, the Viola name became the synonym of love of the family and land, deep gratitude and quality. Marco's philosophy is that every bottle of Viola olive oil has a history of its own. We also think every bottle of Viola Olive Oil is part of the Viola Family history, which makes this oil so remarkable. The family farm is 14 hectares with 5000 olive trees. Nowadays they are collecting olives from 65 hectares with 22000 trees, producing olive oil in the family mill which was built in 1927, now equipped with the latest technology. A remarkable family with a remarkable history and beautiful olive oil, this is Azienda Agraria Viola.
