The inhabited villages: San Felice, Portese and Cisano blend into the green of the morainic hills.
In a corner of the lake the gulf of Salò and that of Manerba join and together they form a small cove, from which the Latin name “Sinus Felix” originates: the happy inlet.

The leaves of our olive trees look at the lake and the roots sink into the moorish land that extends on the headland of San Fermo.
The wind, the sun and the important presence of the lake mitigate the temperatures thus creating the ideal habitat for the cultivation of our olive trees. Their presence in the area dates back to the Roman era.
Among the varieties that we cultivate in the area there are the Leccino, Frantoio, Pendolino, Casaliva and Gargnà cultivars. The latter are native cultivars that contribute to characterize the typicality and quality of our Garda DOP oil.
