Olive trees and vines have been cultivated on our land since the Greek and Roman age, during the “Middle Ages our property belonged to the Church (The ruins of the ancient XI C. Norman Abbey are still standing nearby). My husband’s family took over the land at the beginning of the last century and he and my father in law, both doctors convinced about the healthiness of the Mediterranean diet, decided to keep up the family tradition. Presently they are proud to produce this high quality extra virgin olive oil. A moderate daily consumption of it can be a very good ally against the aging of our body cells. Orodonvincenzo is an excellent dressing for meat, fish, salads and vegetables. It will enhance the flavour of your dishes.
A mechanical arm shaker knocks down the olives into a net, then they are placed in bins and cold pressed in a mill at continuous cycle within 24 hours from harvesting, so as to preserve the fruity flavour, high amount of polyphenols and low acid content which account for its excellent taste and healthy quality.
