CARE OF THE TREES

Quality olive oil begins with the care of the trees and the land. For over 80 years, we have been looking after our Coratina olive trees. We till the land instead of using any herbicides.

HARVESTING

When it is time for harvest the olives are handpicked and treated with great care.

COLLECTION

Nets are spread on the ground to catch the falling olives. They are collected and poured into crates.

TO THE MILL

Immediately after the olives are harvested they are taken to the mill to undergo the extraction process.

THE OLIVE PRESS

The olives are started on the the press.

SIFTING

The first step on the press is to sift out the twigs and leaves.

WASHING

The olives are then carefully washed, removing dust and dirt.

FIRST STONE
COLD-PRESSED

To extract the oil the olives are first crushed in a stone mill. The olives are crushed with the pit in. The pit contains a highly concentrated amount of powerful minerals and polyphenols.

OIL SEPARATION

The crushed olives are then processed in a centrifuge, seperating the olive oil from water and solids. The water contains valuable minerals and is saved to be put into the olive groves, as a natural fertilizer. The solids are used as fuel to heat the factory, so nothing is thrown away.

EXTRA VIRGIN, UNFILTERED

The final result is a vibrant, anti-oxidant rich extra virgin olive oil.

Mazzone Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains a minimum 600mg of polyphenol anti-oxidants per liter, compared to only 100mg per liter in multi-varietal oils.
