A family story


The roots of our family rooted in these lands for three generations, that is since Grandpa Alfonso, former oil trader, bought the first hectares in the early 60s and made it before a vineyard, then a wheat field, and finally an olive grove.


After him, his son Salvatore, while addressing other activities, has never been able to resist the call of this magical place, to the point of deciding, in 2010, to extend the property to its current size and launch, together with his wife Daniela the Oikos project.


Today, history repeats itself with their eldest daughter Federica, who, after studying law abroad and worked in international law firms, has suffered the same appeal and decided to get involved to delve into the wonderful world of extra. Becoming Sommelier of Oil and it specialized with a master's degree in food & wine management, is determined to make the family business with her sister Julia and brother Alfonso, a touch of modernity while respecting the ancient tradition.


 


The Farm


The olive grove, from which is produced a high quality extra virgin olive oil, dominates the Terre and protects them embracing its borders.


This is where we grow different qualities of Olive: Nocellara, Biancolilla, Mona Lisa and Bella di Spagna, each characterized by aromas and flavors. From their wise combination, together with the constant care and attention, never forced the olive trees, there is one single oil, flavor and unmistakable aroma.
