About Azienda Agraria Viola:

There is a magical piece of land in Umbria, nestled between Assisi and Spoleto on the hills of Foligno. This is the home of the Viola family. The tale of Viola Olive Oil begins in the early 19th century when Biagio and Lucia passed on their love and passion for olive trees to their son, Ferdinando. As years passed, the moment arrived when Diamante, Ferdinando's son, transformed the family's passion for olive groves into a small family business.

Biagio Viola, the son of Diamante, ensured the company's prosperity while passing the Viola family legacy to the next generation - Marco. Marco comprehended the changes of modern days while carefully preserving the family's legacy and traditions. With his professionalism and environmental respect, the Viola name became synonymous with love for family and land, deep gratitude, and quality.

Marco's philosophy is that every bottle of Viola olive oil carries its own unique history. We also believe that each bottle of Viola Olive Oil is a part of the Viola Family history, making this oil truly remarkable.

The family farm spans 14 hectares with 5000 olive trees. Presently, they harvest olives from 65 hectares with 22,000 trees, producing olive oil in the family mill built in 1927, now equipped with the latest technology. A remarkable family with a rich history and beautiful olive oil - this is Azienda Agraria Viola.
