The production of our extra-virgin olive oil finds its roots at the beginning of the 20th Century. The passion and the dedication of our ancestors enabled us to refine the traditional techniques, mastering the skill of cultivating and handpicking olives of the finest quality.
Olive Italia is produced without the use of harmful substances, such as pesticides, fertilizers or any other type of chemicals. The richness in its texture and color and the genuineness of its healthy taste result from the painstaking care of our trees .
Olive Italia is a territorial excellence produced in small scale and highly sustainable .
It is not only oil, but a story to be told, a taste to be savored, day after day.
In Gardapraineto, we do not “make oil”: we cultivate unique olive trees and treat them with meticulous care.
Each Olive Italia bottle has been designed by Maurizio Orrico.
Its roots, like ours, are in Calabria, Southern Italy .
Calabria is a region of contrasts and wonders, proud of its values and traditions
and willing to share them with the rest of the world.
One of the wildest , purest, most intense Italian regions.
Welcome to Calabria, place of contrasts and timeless traditions.
Here we grow the most precious olives, like our ancestors before us.
Once, Calabria was the heart of Magna Grecia. From Greece, we inherited the sun, the sea and the wind that made it possible for olive trees to grow spontaneously.
As the time passed, we learnt how to obtain olive oil in the purest way:
by supporting each tree’s growth, without any interference.
This is what makes our olive oil inimitable.
