Palazzo di Varignana is a project hinged around the recovery and regeneration of historic buildings, abandoned rural lands, and farmhouses along with crops that have been discontinued.
Founded in 2015, our agricultural estate stretches today over 500 hectares of land. Thanks to the restoration of the ancient varieties of native olive trees, extending for 242 hectares, we are proud to produce one of the most awarded and recognized extra virgin olive oil in the world.
Alongside the olive groves, there are also 57 hectares of vineyards, 3,000 square meters of vegetable gardens, a vast orchard, and an original and rare crop of saffron.
The line of products under the brand "Palazzo di Varignana" includes 5 types of the finest extra virgin olive oil (of which three are monocultivar and two are blends), 4 kind of wines: Chardonnay, Sangiovese e Pinot Nero which is our milestone, delicious jams, and fruit juices, precious saffron pistils, salts flavored with medicinal herbs and Goji berries.
This project intends to bring forward values such as tradition, local area, excellence, and health.
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Palazzo di Varignana has obtained the Municipal Designation of Origin from the Municipality of Bologna, distinguishing itself in the panorama of local excellence.
The Municipality of Bologna has decided to establish its own Municipal Denomination (De.Co.), in order to survey and enhance the agri-food activities and products of the area and as a tool for promoting the image of Bologna.
