The farm is located in “Contrada Serravalle” in the area of “Chiaramonte Gulfi”, in the centre of the DOP “Monti Iblei” region, in the sub-zone “Gulfi”. The farm, was part of a larger estate, for centuries, it has belonged to the family of the present owner and up to the nineteenth century was a typical “all-embracing” farm, where grapes, olives and carobs were cultivated.
In 2001 the owner has improved the farm and an irrigation system has been applied to the whole property. It is not only a simple bottle of oil that we are offering you. It is rather the result of one thousand years of culture, constant and patient daily duty , the fruit of a generous land and a blessing of the sun.
