The story of Maurizio and his oil, it is also the story of a land and a legacy. Raised in the Sicilian tradition, Maurizio developed this love of earth and olives. It was with pride and passion that he created his own olive business in 2004 in the small town of Ferla, in the middle of nature and the secular olive trees belonging to his family. Since then, he watches over his olive trees throughout the year, relying on the family know-how that has been passed on to him, protecting his trees from harsh winters and the drought of summer.

The Olive Grove 

The olive grove count about 1000 trees covering more than 7 hectares., The majority olive is here the Tonda Iblea. Most olive trees are from 10 to 50 years old, the olive grove is located in the countryside of Ferla, a small quiet town at 560m altitude in the province of Syracuse, Sicily. The climate there is fresh and healthy, enjoying a good geographical location. The hilly terrain, rich in volcanic stones is very difficult to work. The harvest is therefore complicated, but it is also the reason why this organic olive oil is of such great organoleptic richness.

Fun Fact:

The producer's favorite recipe: a tomato salad, with onions, a hint of oregano and a drizzle of olive oil.
