The farm is family run. The farm covers an area of 9 hectares in the territoy of Vasto City, province of Chieti, in the heart of Punta Aderci Natural Reserve at an altitude of 27mt on the sea level, along the splendid Trabocchi Coast, one of the most prestigious and enchanting places on the Adriatic coast of Abruzzo. The farm follows the rules of Biological Agricultural and Biodynamics Demeter and observes the specification of the Protected Designation of Origin “Colline Teatine Vastese” to guarantees its provenance.
Harvesting occurs mainly by hand, with the help of shakers that drop the olives on special nets, and are just the olives that fall on the harvesting nets that are brought to the crusher for cold squeezing, wich usually takes place within 5 hours.
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.
"Don Vincenzo" Colline Teatine PDO, ultra-premium, very well balanced oil is produced from a mixture rigorously precise of olives Gentile di Chieti (40%), Leccino (30%), Moraiolo (15%) and Nebbio of Chieti (15%), according to the regulations of the Disciplinary DOP Colline Teatine that highlight a uniqueness that you have never tasted before.
