Il Cantastorie

Olive harvest

“Il Cantastorie” is an olive farm producing a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil.

The olive harvest is a traditional, annual event. The olives are picked partly by hand and partly machine harvested with a shaking device driven by a compressor. The olives fall into big nets placed under the trees and are then collected in crates.

Afterwards the olives are transported to a nearby oil mill for processing. The processing consists of mashing the olives with special machines while ensuring the oil remains pure and uncontaminated by any other substance. The oil obtained is of high quality and can be consumed right away.

There is also the possibility of observing this olive mashing process at the oil mill and to sample the freshly produced oil commonly known as “olio nuovo” (new oil).

Come and enjoy the unique colors and flavors of fall!
