Villa Capodaglio

...more than two centuries of genuine passion for the land and its good fruits …

The Azienda Agricola Capodaglio tells a story of over two centuries of authentic passion for the land and its good fruits, experienced by working every day to promote a sustainable agriculture capable of respecting the natural characteristics of plants and to ensure high energetic and organoleptic value to crops. The ancient Villa (Villa Capodaglio) built in the XVI century, is now the headquarters of the company. The building used to be a private residence and lately a monastery, built on the ruins of the Castle of the  Carraras, surrounded by Cabernet, Merlot, Refosco, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Palava and Glera vineyards.

Two years ago the agricultural and winemaking tradition of our company met the taste for innovation. To the vineyard, we added the completely natural and sustainable plant cultivation of Goji Lycium Barbarum, adopting an agronomic method (Organic Forest®) that promotes and respects the natural ecosystems, the genetic biodiversity and the biological cycles within the agricultural systems.

 

The transformation of the fresh product (extra jam, pure juice and honey) is entrusted to the excellence of the Venetian Azienda Agricola Scarpon from Arquà Petrarca (PD). The farm is a rare and precious reality that has been working over the last thirty years in the production and processing of high-quality raw materials from our territory.

 

THE FIRST SUSTAINABLE ENTIRELY ITALIAN CROP OF FRESH GOJI. OVER 60.000 PLANTS OF GOJI LYCIUM BARBARUM AND 35 HECTARES FOR ITS PLANTATION. THE BIGGEST IN EUROPE.

A TINY FRUIT, A WORLD OF BENEFITS, a shared passion that runs through Italy, the Plain of Sybaris to the Euganean Hills.

 

OH SOLE and GOJI CAPO are the Italian brands that directly sell FRESH Goji Lycium Barbarum berries, exclusively grown in Italy, initially selected and harvested by hand. The product is 100% natural, thanks to the unanimous choice to support a sustainable agriculture capable of respecting the natural characteristics of the plants. The product ensures the highest organoleptic value and energy of the goji superfruit in its precious variety of the Goji Lycium Barbarum, naturally prepared and perfectly acclimatised on the Mediterranean soil.

The idea of cultivating in Italy the fruit of the goji plant was born in 2013 from Nicola Rizzo and his son Nicolò, owners of the Azienda Agricola Favella in Corigliano Calabro (CS). The farm was

already Italian excellence in the horticultural crops of mushrooms and the breeding of buffalas.  Hereafter they established themselves as the first company in Europe to cultivate and distribute with their OH SOLE brand,  fresh Goji Lycium Barbarum berries. They shared their consolidated know-how,  a fine selection of plants and seeds and the passion for this extraordinary fruit with their friends from the Azienda Agricola Capodaglio (PD)  and their brand GOJI CAPO, thus promoting the growth of a common excellence project (more than 60.000 plants and 35 hectares of land). By doing this, they granted a fully sustainable production of Goji Lycium Barbarum plants and fruits, as well as many natural products obtained from the processing of the fresh berries.
