Our New Award!
Olivigna has won Manningham Business of Year.
Here’s the thoughts of our co-founder Anna Gallo.
“I’m am thrilled and humbled to have won Manningham Business of the Year for 2016.
“To be chosen amongst such esteemed finalist really is an honour.
“When my husband John Di Pietro and I first dreamt up Olivigna – a place that would combine the best of Italy with the best of Australia on a beautiful stretch of rolling bushland– we always hoped people would get what we wanted to achieve; that they would see our vision and want to be a part of it. The award confirms they do. It reinforces that the way we bring friends and family together – to relax, to connect, to celebrate, to experience la dolce a vita on our 20 stunning acres – really is valued.
“I couldn’t be more proud of how we’ve been accepted by the community and of how we’ve been able to add to what makes this part of the world so very special.”
The Manningham Business of Year Award attracted a record number of applicants and was presented to Olivigna at a gala dinner held at the council offices on November 9.

Our thanks once again go to all involved.
