THE BEST MINERAL WATER IN THE WORLD
The scenery of the Dolomites is fantastic and unique on the planet. They are located in the North-East of Italy, between the Austrian border and the most Northern regions of Italy, mainly in Trentino Südtirol. They are recognised worldwide and have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Area. They are an astonishing expression of Mother Nature, a majestic symbol of purity, beauty and uniqueness.
Cedea mineral water spring was recently discovered in the deep core of the Dolomites. It was called Cedea, after the Goddess of Water and Life of the local legends. It’s the only mineral water spring at the feet of Her Majesty Marmolada the Queen, the Dolomites’ highest mountain. This high quality water has exceptional features.
Noble, pure, sustainable mineral water
The contained exploitation of its source allows Cedea to achieve maximum sustainability, without any impact on the ecosystem.
Nature is the first key point in making Cedea a truly noble mineral water.
No human intervention is necessary. No drilling in the ground, no pumping, no invasive structures or machines, no filtering, Cedea is naturally pure.
The plant and the entire production process have been designed to be sustainable and green at the highest level, in line with the local culture of high quality of life, protecting nature and safeguarding the environment.
The famous and historic village of Cedea has a population of around 1800 people. It is governed by the ancient laws of the local Ladin culture, which protect the land and the rich nature of this corner of paradise. In line with the culture of Ladin self-government, Cedea is an artisan business that is beautifully integrated into its natural environment.
Mineral water with crystal clear quality
Cedea has been conceived as a maximum expression of quality since the beginning. In this respect, all the aspects of its products reflect not only the best standards in terms of bottled mineral water, but also the fundamental culture of care for Mother Nature. The choice of Cedea is in fact to produce only prime quality glass, refusing on purpose any plastic packaging.
Sustainability and recycling are the only possible keys for a development gentle to the planet, and glass is not only a completely natural material for bottling, but it’s also the material keeping the best quality of the water that the planet gives us.
Cedea is simply aligned with the natural principles of our Earth, thanking it for the highest quality of Cedea mineral water.

The famous romantic Ladin tale of King Laurin tells that he fell in love with the beautiful sister of the Ostrogoths King, so he kidnapped her. He eventually hid her into his kingdom, whose entrance was recognisable thanks to a magnificent Garden of Roses.
To protect her from being found, he cast a spell to make the roses invisible: “No one will lay eyes on my roses, day or night”. But he forgot to mention the time when it is neither day nor night. So at sunrise and sunset, the glare of the sun floods the enchanted Rose Garden with its marvellous light, the Enrosadira.
Honouring this legend, the Cedea symbol is a Rose flower, recalling to the magic Enrosadira of the Dolomites, while its stem is made with the name of Cedea, the Ladin Goddess of Water and Life.
Inside its bottle, Cedea water glares and shines lively and vividly coloured, like the natural paradise of its birthplace, thanks to the surprising light refraction from the thick bottom, vibrantly painted and embedding the rose petals.

Drinking alkaline water helps the body to reach a balanced pH, which needs to be slightly alkaline. For the same reason it’s healthy to eat fruits and vegetables.
