Harvest and production process

Harvest and production processes

The oil is produced from olives picked from the best plants and its varieties are "Ogliarola Salentina" and "Cellina di Nardò". The harvest takes place through the shaking of the tree, the olives fall into nets in order to avoid touching the ground. They are washed and placed in big cases and milled within five hours; only in particularly hard periods are they milled within 6/12 hours.
The olives, picked and taken straight away to the oil-mill, are first of all separated according to their selection and the land they come from, in order to identify the production and the quality of the juice obtained, and also to preserve their fragrances, perfumes, and organoleptic characteristics in the best way possible. This it is possible also thanks to packaging in dark green glass.
The packing takes place in little batches od dark glasses in order to guarantee the optimal preservation for these and as important element of guarantee for the customer too.

The manufacturing process is fully controlled by traceable certified equipment to guarantee the highest quality for the consumer.

OUR VALUES

"The olive mill is the holy place where the oil kept time with its slow surfacing. Fragrance are so powerful to bring back memories.
When I was a little boy I remember my grandfather tasted that precious olive oil and I remember that my brothers and me watched his poetic and repetitive gestures, in silence. The millers were waiting anxiously for a retribution. Then, Grandpa's face lit up with pride and satisfaction and an indescribable joy pervaded people's thoughts.
Feelings we may still feel when we see our precious olive oil and when we offer it to those who appreciate the unique taste through tradition" (R.Cazzetta)

The olive tree has been the inspiration for many in songs and poems.
Many linguistic expression concerning the olive tree and the olive oil production have been created. Many proverbs reveal the importance that the olive oil production has always had, from ancient times.

L'umanità dell'albero d'olivo

I popoli del Mediterraneo
cominciarono ad uscire dalla barbarie
quando impararono a
coltivare l'olivo e la vite
Tucidide

Olea prima omnium arborum est
L'olivo è il primo fra tutti gli alberi
Columella

Gli ulivi
sono fantasmi affollati
nelle distese di grano
oltre i lunghi filari delle viti.
Tanta polvere tanto sole
e la gola insecchita
porta a miraggi di sorgenti
nell'arida terra del Salento
dove le montagne si sognano
Ennio Bonea
