The olive trees as well as the production of our organic olive oil “olio extra vergine di oliva biologico D.O.P. Podere I Prati” are located in the UNESCO world heritage site “Val d’Orcia”, which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata, in Tuscany. This region is not only famous for its excellent olive oils and wines, but also for its historical importance in art and culture during the Italian renaissance.
Our olive grove is located at approximately 500 meters above sea level. This altitude combined with the central Italian climate creates a perfect environment for cultivating olive trees, with a greatly reduced risk to plants and fruits. The ideal conditions therefore make it unnecessary to use chemicals on our olives. Neither our land nor our olive trees have been treated with any chemical products for over 40 years. We continue to cultivate our land and produce olive oil according to European organic standards.
