EVO DEL BORGO MILL

where excellence is born from love.

 

A history that grows in the heart of the Euganean Hills, in one of the most beautiful medieval village of Italy.

 

The “Evo del Borgo” mill is located in Arquà Petrarca, a small medieval village out of Padua that famous renaissance poet Francesco Petrarca called home.
The mill is at the base of the hill “Bignano”, in a natural area of volcanic origins.
The Callegaro family, sons, Silvia and Roberto, and father Guerrino, made of tradition and of passion a focus of its work.

The vineyards and olive trees located close to the historic family’s home produce high quality olive oils and wines.
In the last years, the Callegaro family started to produce other natural products too, like fruits jams, honey, chocolate and cosmetics, all made with natural olive oil.

All products are made with passion and high quality.
Silvia and Roberto’s objective is to make their products known and to cultivate the quality of the product itself, which is followed step by step from the fruit to the end result.

The time spent between the process of the harvest and the squeeze of the olives is very short. In this way, the real Italian extravergine olive oil is created!

The olives are used at the maximum of their potential and they conserve quality and their natural aroma.

We cultivate three different kind of olives: Rasara (an indigenous variety of Arquà Petrarca Village), Leccino and Matosso.

The taste of our olives is authentic and speaks about the place, where the olives are cultivated.

It is the taste of the original and authentic italian extravergine olive oil!

It is not by chance that our Brand is Evo: Extra Vergine Olive Oil. We create our products with love and passion.

In our olive oil mill, we only use the most valuable olives and we work to preserve their organoleptic characteristics.

The Mill Evo del Borgo wants to connect the tradition of our family with modern and innovative processing techniques.

Olio con sapiente arte spremuto
Dal puro frutto degli annosi olivi,
Che cantan -pace! -in lor linguaggio muto
Degli umbri colli pei solenti clivi,
Chiaro assai più liquido cristallo,
Fragrante quale oriental unguento,
Puro come la fè che nel metallo
Concavo t’arde sull’altar d’argento,
Le tue rare virtù non furo ignote
Alle mense d’Orazio e di Varrone
Che non sdegnàr cantarti in loro note…
Gabriele D’Annunzio

Across the scorched plain
an olive tree drifts
One lone
Olive tree
Federico Garcia Lorca
Non soltanto il vino canta,
anche l’olio canta,
vive in noi con la sua luce matura
e tra i beni della terra
io seleziono,
olio,
la tua inesauribile pace,
la tua essenza verde,
il tuo ricolmo tesoro che discende
dalle sorgenti dell’ulivo.
Pablo Neruda
