Pictorial scenarios evoke the splendor of the spa where San Pellegrino water springs forth at the foot of the Alps in Brembana Valley; the most famous mineral water in the world, and the very beginning of a beverage empire.
The Group is known internationally for its S. Pellegrino mineral water, which, along with the still water Acqua Panna, is served on the tables of the finest restaurants in over 120 countries. The Sanpellegrino company was born in 1899 when, at the plant of the same name, an exclusive treatment center at the time, water gushing from the slopes of the Alps in Brembana Valley began to be bottled. In 1957 Tuscan Acqua Panna was born, whose source had been noticed since the sixteenth century for its beneficial properties. The Acqua Panna estate, comprising 1,300 hectares, in 1564 owned by the Medici family and which currently includes the spring, the plant and a villa for its guests from all over the world, is still a safeguarded territory. In addition to S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna the company exports a wide range of sparkling beverages, including the historic drink brands Aranciata, Limonata and Chinotto. If we also consider the local brands Levissima, Recoaro, Nestlé Vera, S. Bernardo and Pejo, as well as the range of iced teas, the Sanpellegrino group is certainly Italy's largest beverage company.
