The purity of a water

It is here, above Lake Como, that mineral water Fontelaura has its origin, pleasurable, light, extremely digestible, with a very small amount of sodium.
The areaMineral water CHIARELLA flows from the very heart of the mountains that surround Lake Como. It is here, straight from the rocks of Mt. Grona, above Plesio, that its proven health benefits come from. FONTELAURA's source is not very far from Chiarella's, it is in the same uncontaminated environment that dominates the wonderful scenario of Lake Como. Mount Grona, a rocky pearls among the other mountains, is the main source of the precious minerals that enrich both Chiarella and Fontelaura.
The historyAfter being considered "the good water" for centuries, appreciated from the local population for its qualities and known benefits, CHIARELLA has been bottled for almost 50 years right from the spring in Plesio, above Menaggio. FONTELAURA's history is, on the other hand, more recent: it started in 1995, after the realisation of a new process of purification, and it has chemical and physical properties similar to the ones of its "sister" CHIARELLA.
The properties of the siteWithout any doubt, the purity of CHIARELLA and FONTELAURA is given by the untouched environment these waters come from. The green meadows and woods around and above the springs melt in the rocky slopes of a massif, which is both calcareous and schist-crystalline (the Grona-Bregagno complex). This complex provides a water rich in noble elements, in fact, this water takes all of these precious elements right from the rocks.
Production and respect for the environmentOpened in Plesio in 1965, the establishment (at the time only Chiarella) was greeted from newspapers as "the most panoramic establishment in Europe for bottled mineral water". Since then, the factory kept on renovating and updating its establishments, putting side by side, in 1988, the glass bottle line and a new plant for bottling the water in PET. In 2007 a brand new establishment was opened with the latest technology for bottling in PET (Krones one-piece through blowing and filling bottles in "white room").
ACQUE MINERALI VAL MENAGGIO S.p.A. never stopped growing and making its standards higher, in fields such as production, security, hygiene and reduction of energy consumption through modern establishments. These establishments meet the needs of both clients and workers, without forgetting the importance of being environmentally friendly.
