Tastings of Olive Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The cultivation of olive groves and oil production was born from a special passion of the Olearo family. In the early 1990’s, the first grove was planted on the “Conca degli Ulivi” land in Cardona hamlet. It is a 5 hectare plot which enjoys particularly favorable sun exposure and wind protection. Oil production began in 2008.
The olives are harvested by hand, while the cold pressing is carried out by a mill in Liguria
The resultant oil is crude, non filtered, with a very low acid level and peroxides, and can be sampled at the Enoteca, together with our wines.
BIO VINEGAR of MONFERRATO
Barbera Vinegar of Monferrato
To obtain an excellant vinegar, one must begin with an excellant wine, Barbera d’Asti.
The process takes place in a small vinegar still, at the Campasso Farm. The vinegar is then aged in French oak barriques.
