Our values

Only nature knows the unique and inimitable recipe for Acqua San Bernardo: since ancient times, San Bernardo has been known as “the miraculous spring of San Bernardo” by locals, the first to benefit from the therapeutic properties of this water and to recognise its particular lightness. Our water is free to run, surge, nourish and nourish itself. It is to nature that we owe our most precious gift. Light, balanced and as pure as the spring from which we draw it, knowledge of the extraordinary qualities of our water has always encouraged us to maintain its properties intact and to reduce our impact on the environment. It is only by doing so that we are able to offer it to current generations and take care of it for the generations to come.
