Il Molinello - Agriturismo nelle Crete Senesi

OUR EXTRAVERGIN OLIVE OIL


VISIT OUR ONLINE SHOP

For most of my life and until about a decade ago, when someone would say “olive oil”, I would think  about the supermarket version of olive oil. It’s no longer the case.

#

In 1996 we bought “Il Molinello”, our house and farm business, but the olive grove was acquired later and at that point I decided to produce my own oil. I understood immediately that, even though it was an economic activity, the work would require patience and dedication in order to create what I wanted: an excellent product.

#

In that period I decided to follow a Slow Food course and later took an ONAOO course to become an official oil taster. Thanks to these experiences I could understand and carry out everything I needed to know to create an excellent product:

    •    Harvest the olives before the 15th of October (when the majority of olives are still green) 


    •    Only harvest by hand 


    •    Go to the olive press within 24 hours following the harvest 


    •    Organic farming (of course)

 


Our oil is fundamentally important to us. We sell it at our agriturismo and we cook our food with the oil- food we share with our guests. This is why I love to talk about it. I think that it’s only when people understand what a real “quality” oil is that they can fully enjoy it. That’s the reason why I put as much care as possible in our oil tasting lessons.
