Respect for nature and tradition, a deep commitment to innovation and sustainability and a fervent devotion to quality at every step of our business are the core values of our company and brand.
We cold press Olio Piro in limited batches from a unique blend of early-harvest olives including those selected from our own groves of 300-year-old olive trees on the slopes of Mount Amiata in the Maremma region of Southern Tuscany. Our proprietary double filtration milling system developed in cooperation with the italian Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche yields a sophisticated Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a rich taste and an unusually high level of healthful antioxidants.
Everything we do, from hand-picking our olives to guard them from bruising to writing the harvest date by hand on each elegant bottle, is designed to bring you an unparalleled product from our mill to your table.
