From september to december

A fundamental aspect in the production of European Extra Virgin Olive Oil is what is commonly called olive milling and which takes place in the period from September to December. 

A very significant moment

The procedure is well organized and punctuated by mandatory steps. The olives harvested from the trees with mechanical and manual methods are immediately taken to the mill, in order to guarantee maximum quality and yield. Subsequently, the entire harvest is transferred to the defoliator, a precise machine which automatically, by means of mesh gears, removes the leaves and twigs that have escaped the watchful eyes of the farmers, separating them from the olives. We then move on to “repilitura” using special machinery.
After washing, the fruits arrive at the mill and enter directly into the crusher, starting the processing cycle.
