The origins of Pineo: special water for a reason
Water. Purely natural. Served from the source.
Pineo water comes from deep inside the Benedio mountain, a holy mountain that stands at 1,500 meters in the municipality of Estamariu.
The average capacity of the Pineo sources is 25,000 litres an hour – never pumped, just naturally arising. The water we do not bottle eventually flows into the 261 km long El Segre river.
