The Olive oil Museum
From rural handicraft to industrial technology: this is the leading thread of the Olive Oil Museum. An ancient, powerful lever press, millstones, screw presses and a reconstruction of a 19th century water mill are the highlights of this exhibition, also enriched by historical documents and teaching equipment. A celebration of oil and olive trees, two peculiar elements in the history and civilisation of Mediterranean peoples.
In the Museum shop all the different kinds of our Museum extravirgin olive oils can be tasted and bought, together with a wide selection of delicacies closely connected to olive oil, like different kinds of spicy oil and aromatic vinegar, pesto, different products in oil, tasty and variously flavoured olives. And, last but not least, a wine shop with best wines from the Garda district.
