Did you know that in Valpolicella each winery produced also a terrific EVO oil?

In Italy, production is mainly concentrated in the center-south. While the province of Verona is the northernmost area in the world, where it is possible to cultivate the olive tree for the production of olive oil.

In particular, in this territory, two different production areas certified D.O.P. (protected designation of origin): Garda-Orientale and Veneto-Valpolicella.

In fact, Valpolicella enjoys a very favorable microclimate for the cultivation of olive trees and vines.


Olive oil: production phases

There are two stages of extra virgin olive oil production:

  • olive harvest
  • extraction
  • the olives are traditionally harvested by hand on nets, as is still the case, for example, for the Valpolicella Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The harvesting period runs from approximately mid-October to the end of December. Harvesting by hand is long and difficult, but it is absolutely essential to ensure the production of a fragrant extra virgin olive oil with no unpleasant odors.
  • Once harvested, the olives are stored in plastic bins and bags. They are stored away from heat sources and are pressed within 24-48 hours of collection. The “virgin oils” are obtained exclusively from an extraction based on mechanical processes. There are two different types of extraction:
  • pressure
  • centrifugation

There are five production phases within an oil mill:

  • preliminary stages
  • milling
  • extraction of the oil must
  • separation of oil from water
  • storage, clarification and bottling.
