In September 1952 Giuseppe Fellin, an alert and keen wine merchant, visited the food fair in Parma, Northern Italy, where he participated in conventions about the beneficial qualities and the increasing consumption of mineral water. G. Fellin remembered that in as early as 1913 Professor Lode and Professor Bamberger from Vienna had analysed the water springs on the Plose Mountain, near to his summer home, and had found them to be excellent. After having personally experimented the beneficial qualities of water of the spring he decided to have the results officially tested.
He personally withdrew a large flask of the precious liquid and walked with the pannier strapped upon his back down to the valley. The results of these tests were excellent and this gave way to the ambitious project of bottling the Plose mountain water. The first inspections began in 1953, made all the more difficult by the scarce means of transport available at the time and the imperviousness of the locality.
But after 4 years a fully equipped building had been built next to the holiday home, where the first bottles of Acqua Plose were produced. Today the Fellin family, careful in respecting the local values and traditions, has constructed a modern factory that allows for the bottling of the water according to the most rigid hygienic standards, maintaining the excellent qualities of the water.
