We are in the Aspromonte national park, in San Giorgio Morgeto, in Calabria. The Fazari family has been tending these magnificent olive groves with love, dedication, tenacity and courage since 1940. The key has been a vision in marrying the cult of oil making tradition with innovation. Starting from 1990, the family has planted new varietals, introduced new technologies and production systems, moved company’s sights outside of Italy. Progress is unstoppable. From Calabria to Tokyo to New York, picking up major awards along the way. The greatest reward is however the joy seen in the eyes of someone who tastes the oil… our oil.
In Europe’s northernmost olive region stands a jewel set in the Dolomites, where the lake tempers the extreme mountain weather and creates a unique microclimate that results in unparalleled extra virgin olive oil.
Agraria Riva del Garda is a cooperative farm, operated by 80 growers and boasting 85,000 plants.
Specific directives defined by agronomists, careful organisation of the labour, a short supply chain, and expertise in farming, together with an advanced entrepreneurial vision, have led to a number of national and international awards.
Founded in 1965, Agraria Riva Del Garda has become the first olive press to produce Garda Trentino PDO extra vergin olive oil in 1998 and it was certified organic in 2009.
We are located in the Monti Iblei, in southeast Sicily, a place famous for olive growing: it is said that the Phoenicians were the first to cultivate olives in Italy in this spot. Here, the Cutrera family turned its passion into a profession in 1999 and its hard work has been rewarded with many awards. The quality of Cutrera extra virgin olive oil is undisputed. Its uniqueness is also given by the fact that olives are hand-picked and immediately transferred to the mill where are cold pressed on three different lines. This allows to select the best technique to produce a truly sublime oil. Passion, skill, professionalism and innovative thinking come together with strength and respect for the land and cutting-edge technology.
A hundred fifty years of history in the quintessential land of extra virgin olive oil. This would suffice describe the Azienda Agraria Viola of Sant’Eraclio in Foligno. This persistent desire to tame the will of these indigenous olive plants, clinging to the rocky land, combines with the ethical decision to adopt organic farming to produce extra-virgin oils with big personality. EVO oils created, not merely produced. In each of these is the unparalleled union of knowledge and nature, supported by that spark of genius and instinct that distinguishes Marco Viola.
The beginning of the history in the mid-1950s with patriarch Fernando, the connection with the land of the Val d’Orcia, since 2004 listed as UNESCO World Heritage site, the relentless commitment to selecting the finest fruits from extraordinary olive groves and the determination and enthusiasm of son Giorgio in pursuing and perfecting the way of absolute quality: these ingredients are what led Frantoio Franci to reach the height of international excellence. Today, Frantoio Franci is regarded as the highest reference for those aiming to better understand extra virgin olive oil and immerse themselves in the fragrance, aromas, nuances and culture of a product that is healthy, delicious and incomparable.
Puglia, land of red soil and olive bushes. Here, in Modugno, is the birthplace of Mimì, a name that honours the dream of Domenico Conserva to produce one of the most delicious oils in Italy. Palpable excellence. Merit of the land that rewards distinction, character and uniqueness. Certainly so, but also thanks to innovative milling and careful controls of each step of the process. Process made of three values: respect, traceability and transparency. Every drop of oil is meticulously tested and tasted to offer only the very best and this has led to countless awards and recognitions from around the world.
