Azienda Agricola Paneolio is located in Valpolicella, close to Verona. It is the olive grove of the Pan family, who have dedicated themselves to quality and sustainability in the production of olive oil. For over 20 years, the Azienda founded by the owner Peter Pan, has been producing olive oil and sparkling wine of exceptional quality, with a passion that has been passed down through the generations.
The Pan family has been passionate about high-quality food for over 100 years. The two youngest generations of the family are now passionately pursuing new paths in olive growing. In doing so, they remain true to the Pan family’s belief in combining tradition, innovation and truly sustainable methods.
A tree can be recognised by its fruit, so they say. Thus, for us a healthy tree is the origin and basis of an excellent olive oil. We grow varieties that harmonise with the location and cultivate our olive grove according to the gentle principles of biodynamic agriculture. From the fruits that grow from this careful cultivation, we obtain the best possible olive oil using the latest technological methods: with regular checks on the degree of ripeness, we determine the optimal time for harvesting and within a few days we carry out the harvest by hand. The chilled olives are processed into olive oil at controlled low temperatures in a protective atmosphere. And because all the work is done directly on the farm, it takes only two hours from harvesting the olives to bottling the oil.
We are excited to share our passion for olive oil and sustainable agriculture and show you Peter Pan’s olive farm.
