Olive groves are widely dispersed across the estate, amongst the vineyards and woodlands. Our 4,000 olive trees are the typical cultivars of the region, including Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino. These groves are certified organic, and every element of work in the olive groves, from the pruning to the harvest, is done manually. The harvest is typically in October or November when the olives are just turning from green to black. It is timed to allow us to deliver a vibrant Extra Virgin Olive Oil full of elegance and spice as well as abundant polyphenols (antioxidants).
