AN OIL THAT TELLS THE STORY OF OUR LAND AND OUR TOILS
Our oil emerges from a historical and cultural journey that mixes ancient knowledge with the daily toil of living on fertile terrain suited to olive cultivation. Our work sustains and adds value to this vital crop which thrives in volcanic soil, in a climate and at altitudes capable of giving the olives unique and recognizable organoleptic characteristics.
The Vùlture Oil Millers project was born from the collaboration of olive growers and millers in the Vùlture area, in north-eastern Basilicata, and its mission is to protect and enhance local olive growing, following in the footsteps of the long-standing tradition that has always existed here.
The hard work they do every day and the continuous improvements made to production have made Vùlture oil millers the guardians of an agricultural and natural heritage that remains intact and still relatively unknown.
Their commitment to quality and upholding tradition goes far beyond the fields and the mill, and requires dedication and culture, know-how and a sense of responsibility towards a history which, thanks to new generations who are revisiting and renewing it, can now look to the future.
The Protected Designation of Origin scheme, introduced in 2013, offers a recognized quality path and guarantee for consumers that they are receiving an excellent product, as tradition dictates.
