Extra-virgin olive oil

From our olive trees we produce an extra-virgin olive oil of exceptional quality every year. This is the oil that we use for cooking, that our guests can purchase at the hotel, produced by means of cold pressing.

What is the extra-virgin olive oil and what makes it valuable?

"Extra Virgin Olive Oil" is obtained from the first cold pressing of olives, without chemicals. Only Italian olives, fresh, top quality, picked and pressed. The oil must have an acidity level of less than 1%.

Homemade jams

From the fruit trees grown on our land we also derive the fruits with which we produce homemade jams (figs, mulberries, plums, lemons, tangerines, oranges, quince, prickly figs).

Homemade liqueurs

But that is not all. It is on this land that we pick the lemons to produce an excellent Limoncello, the wild myrtle berries to produce Mirto, the black cherry leaves with which we produce an exquisite Elisir, the bay leaves to produce a fragrant Laurino, walnuts to produce the bitter natural par excellence, Nocino. After dinner, our guests really like tasting our homemade liqueurs , according to old jealously guarded recipes handed down from our grandmothers.
