How we produce our Sabina Dop Olive Oil
Have you ever been in an olive mill? The smell of olive oil is intoxicating! Although processing techniques changed over the decades, the core of tradition in Sabina is the same as it was 70 years ago. The harvesting season starts in October. No machinery is involved in this step: olives are hand-picked. This job is no easy task, but this is a ritual for farmers in Italy, a ritual they wouldn’t give up for all the money in the world.
Once farmers have picked them from their trees, olives are put in wooden boxes to be transferred to the olive mill, where they are cold pressed in a modern continuous machine. When cold pressed,olives retain all of their properties and give us the high-quality extra virgin olive oil famous all over the world.
Now it’s time for Terre Sabine to put the oil in their bottles and deliver them to our customer all over the world. Come and buy Terre Sabine healthy olive oil and bring to your table the virtues of this fragrant, healthy golden liquid.
