Our Organic Olive estate

About Our Organic Olive estate, il Fontanaro.

The Fontanaro Organic Olive estate and villas was  built in 1893. We are  located in Umbria, “the green heart of Italy” on the border of Tuscany, the property is set on 40 acres with  more than 2.500 olive trees and a small vineyard.

The view lends itself to rolling green hills facing breathtaking sunsets and sunrise like a Perugino’s painting. The history of il Fontanaro  is the history of  our Pinelli  family,  Italy.

More than 38 years ago, we bought   the ruin  of an 18th century farmhouse,  including  50 acres of land. Gradually we restored it into a country house for our family. At that time we  started planting olive trees.
At  the same time we expanded and developed the property and  transformed it in a small luxury  resort (with infinity pools and hot tub), where we can accommodate up to 46  people who we treat as a part of  our family.

To enhance the  Italian experience, we  present authentic food matched with excellent wines with educational farming and cooking experiences.

Our  wine cellar contains an extensive collection of unique wines from all areas of Italy, as well as from other countries  where they  have travelled.  The cooking classes and the wine and olive oil tasting become a highlight for our visitors. And also our Adopt an Olive tree project.
