Family tradition

Documents dating back to 1800 bear the proof of how lands “with sterile olive trees” became prosperous and fruitful olive groves,

The constant improvements introduced by successive generations throughout the ages projected the company into the future.

A legacy THAT LOOKS FORWARD

The traditional vocation for olive-growing and the continuous efforts in the search for quality and improvement, make the company one of the best known and most qualified producers in the area.

The young and innovative management, but still close to tradition, is the right link between past and present, where every innovation is the result of the family experience of decades of activity and passion.
