The flavors of the island - The island’s extra virgin olive oil

Le Gandine

In the hamlet of Peschiera Maraglio, in the heart of Monte Isola, an oasis of peace and timeless beauty is hidden: ‘Le Gandine’. This locality is characterized by its 120 olive trees arranged on various terraces, but even more by its enchanting view of the southern shore of Lake Iseo.

The ‘Le Gandine’ oil
Thanks to the unique microclimate of the lake island of Monte Isola, the olive groves of Gandine (and other places on the island) produce olives of the highest quality. A superior category extra virgin olive oil with a unique flavor is extracted from these. Since 2018, the ‘Sambusida Samuele’ farm, specialized in the production of extra virgin olive oil in the municipality of Monte Isola, has continued to pass on this tradition of taste and quality. From here comes an exclusive extra virgin olive oil.

In the village of Siviano you can find their shop, where you can buy cosmetics, oil and dried herbs. It is also possible to taste their oil with cold cuts and local cheeses accompanied by Franciacorta wines.

The shop is open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
