The company

Quality since 1926

San Bernardo is positioned at the centre of projects run by families who have made history with Italian beverages. The Gruppo Montecristo, which has an annual turnover of 70 million Euro producing 350 million litres, was founded by the Biella and Colombo families.


Gruppo Montecristo acquires Fonte Ilaria – the Lucca based company producing carbonated drinks and mineral water also for private labels.


Gruppo Montecristo acquires Fonti di Posina in Vicenza – a company operating in the mineral water market and specializing in the production of sterile beverages: particularly in the organic sector which constitutes 20% of its export turnover.


In May 2015, ownership of S.Bernardo passed from the multinational Sanpellegrino-Nestlé to the Gruppo Montecristo becoming the key player among the company’s projects.
