Welcome to our story
Since 1927 we have had the aim of enhancing and spreading the culture of quality, in full respect of nature
An all Calabrese story
It was the beginning of 1927 when the first generation of olive growers in our family began this journey that has been going on for almost a century. It all began with a passionate and far-sighted Carlo Rota who, together with his brother Salvatore, has the intuition to grind the olives he produces himself. The small oil mill, located in the center of the town, comes to life. Harvesting becomes a moment of celebration and squeezing the moment of reward with the expected oil, the result of a year of hard work. The enthusiasm and passion for genuineness and tradition pass from generation, the wisdom for this work is transmitted from father to son and from son to grandson. Today we have grown, the plant has grown, we have adapted to modern techniques, but we always remain faithful to the tradition that has taught us so much over the years.
Our history is our passion, our strength is quality
The estate covers a total area of 150 hectares, of which 75 are dedicated to the specialized cultivation of the olive tree.
The soil, of calcareous clayey and sandy origin, is ideal for the cultivation of the olive tree, as it is rich in all the macro and microelements essential for its growth. The whole area of our estates enjoys a wonderful Mediterranean microcrime, consisting of hot, dry summers and short, rainy winters in the right amount. All this is even more accentuated by the position of our estates, halfway between the Sila National Park and the wonderful Ionian coasts.
