Extra-virgin olive oil, one of the main ingredients of the Mediterranean diet, is immediately associated with Italy. It is a unique product by virtue of its ancient bond with the land. This bond re ects the biodiversity of our territory. Two varieties of particularly sought after olive oil are produced on our hills. The olive groves at our farm are situated in one of the northernmost traditional olive-growing areas in the world: the Pedemontana del Grappa. Although it is dif cult to determine the exact age of the olive trees, many of them are considered to be several hundred years old.
Other younger olive trees are 20 to 50 years old. Every region of Italy has different types of soil, consequently, the oil produced has its own typicalities and should be tasted acknowledging the value of these differences. In order to maintain the high quality of the end product, about 4 hours after being picked, strictly by hand, we take our olives to our oil mill for pressing. Every year, our olive groves allow us to produce two types of extra-virgin olive oil: cold-pressed oil and organic olive oil.
