Our goal is to start harvesting in the morning to bring olives to the oil mill at the end of the day to get the highest quality. All crusher operations are performed with careful attention with strictly cold extraction. After extraction, the oil is filtered to completely eliminate sediments and stored in stainless steel silos at controlled temperature in the absence of oxygen. Bottling takes place at the time of ordering from the customer, to retain the fragrance more.
