  • Our olive tree varieties are Frantoio, Moraiolo, Leccino, and Pendolino
  • Created from our 100+ year old trees on our farm in Maremma Tuscany. Situated near the sea, the environment and soils produce incredible olives, that go on to make our IGP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Collection, and getting olives to the olive pressing mill, this happens within six hours of us us picking our olive, the olives degrade once harvested so it is important to be fast to mill the olives.
  • The olive mill used is state of the art, the olives once washed enter the crushing machine and the environment is zero oxygen, meaning oxidization of the olives during the crushing process does not occur, this ensures the olive paste stays fresh when its arrives to the pressing machine, which is also oxygen free.
  • Our olive oil is ‘filtered’ extra virgin olive oil; it is filtered through ‘single use’ paper filter blocks under pressure after pressing, all particulates that could cause the oil to go ‘degrade over time’ are removed. Non filtered oil should be used within months, filtered extra virgin olive oil has a much longer life.
  • After going through the disposable, one ‘single use’ paper filtration system, our olive oil is stored in our own personal storage tanks in a temperature controlled environment and the tanks are topped off with nitrogen, this keeps the oil away from any contact with air during storage, it is only bottled when required.
  • We store our un-bottled olive oil in temperature controlled environment under nitrogen and even when bottling we place nitrogen in the bottle to remove any oil to air contact, thus reducing oxidisation, one of the main reasons that extra virgin olive oil looses its flavour and supreme taste profile.
