Just a short distance away, in Villa La Pagliaia, one can admire the impressive late 19th-century estate residence, which belongs to the San Felice tenuta. Here too is the olive press that produces San Felice’s extravirgin olive oil.
Its location is crucial, for it ensures that the olives will be pressed the same day they are picked, a critical factor in obtaining the highest quality oil.
The ancient millstones have given way to more modern technologies. Today, centrifuge extraction allows a greater protection of the olive’s delicate flavours and aromas, which abound in our elegant estate oils.
