Picked exclusively by hand in order to assure their integrity, the olives are put in large ventilated baskets and sent to the milling process within 12 hours from their picking.
The farm name recalls latin origins, suggesting the place where, in ancient times, olives were crushed, namely the “trapetum.”
We are in the heart of Sicily, a few miles far from the Mediterranean Sea and Valle dei Templi, in a land with a perennial vocation for olives and vines growing. Warm and dry weather gives a special strength and full taste to olive oil, which can be found in Sicilian lands only.
