About Us

Welcome to Country Slow Living

Ciao and welcome to Best Italian Olive Oil website and thanks for stopping by!
This project was born from the passion of Verdacchi-Pinelli family for green and quality traditions. Since 1976, when we bought il Fontanaro farm we’ve started to do our best to be self sufficient, not wating our planet, but enanching our land.

Nowadays, after several decades, we are very proud to produce our extra virgin organic olive oil, olio della Pace at Il Fontanaro Olive Oil  Estate in Paciano, Umbria, Italy.  We are a family owned 100% organic olive grove and estate and our yearly harvest is approaching! Have a look at our photos and videos and don’t forget to order your own bottle of the best olive oil in Italy!  We are rated by Slow Food,  the New York  and London World Competition and among best Italian olive oil.  Come and visit us for a unique olive oil tasting and cooking class, we are always happy to share our love for the green living!

We are a small family adhering to principles of quality extra virgin olive oil making. We firmly believe that the olive oil we make is capable of competing with world famous brands.

Our extra virgin olive oil is a combination of hard work of our makers and the unique terroir: thoroughness on each stage of olive oil making and usage of up-to-date techniques.

In our wine racks you will find a vast selection of different wines from the four corners of the globe. Our friendly and experienced staff will help you to find that ideal bottle.

Lucia Pinelli

What a surprise!

We participated at the olive harvest with the Pinelli family. I must say that the atmosphere that was breathed was magical. Then we attended their oil festival, along with a hundred other people. Fantastic experience that we will take with us. Grazie mille!

Endless flavour

Every time we come to Paciano meeting Lucia, we are amazed at how the simplest things can be the most wonderful.
