Our water

Acqua Panna is a premium still natural spring water that flows through the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany. Each drop of Acqua Panna is naturally filtered by the earth and perfected by time on a 14 year journey to the spring, giving it a special mineral balance for the smoothest taste.

The FDA defines spring water as “water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.” The FDA sets stringent national standards for what qualifies as “spring water” – standards that Acqua Panna consistently meets or exceeds.

The source of Acqua Panna is in Mugello, in the region of Tuscany, Italy.

Acqua Panna takes its name from the Villa Panna Estate in Tuscany, a summer estate that was owned by the noble Medici family of Florence.  The Medici family were of the most renowned art patrons in history.  Their court included some of the most celebrated artists & visionaries including Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, and Botticelli. The iconic fleur-des-lis symbol was their crest. The Medici family acquired over 3,000 acres of land in Scarperia, Tuscany in order to turn it into an untouched hunting reserve. They officially limited its borders with an act, dating back to 1564.  That decree still exists and guards the land where Acqua Panna flows.

Acqua Panna is described as the smoothest tasting water. It has been recognized by chefs and sommeliers around the world. The unique flavor profile of Acqua Panna comes from its 14-year journey through the aquifer beneath the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany as it develops its mineral composition which creates the smoothest tasting water.

According to expert sommeliers, Acqua Panna® Natural Mineral water is best paired with a 'light' wine, and all foods that are considered ‘delicate’. Acqua Panna perfectly accompanies and complements these tastes and enhances them on your taste buds. Usually Acqua Panna is paired with white or even bubbly wines, but of course everything is a matter of personal taste.
