SOCIETA' AGRICOLA IL FRANTOIO DI VICOPISANO, Farm

A pleasant microclimate, a passion for organic farming, their own ancient oil press: these are the primary characteristics of the Commercial Farm Il Frantoio di Vicopisano. The farm, which is located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, has approximately 3,000 olive trees, a lovely vineyard, a vast fruit orchard and a forest on the nearby hill.

The extra virgin olive oil is then stored in stainless steel basins in a protected environment and kept at a stable temperature under 18° C, until it is bottled in the cellar immediately prior to marketing.

Everyone knows the difference between a fruit which has just been picked from the tree and one which has travelled to reach a supermarket counter. The first possesses scents and flavours which are only a faint memory to the second.

For this very reason, overlooking the farmyard and Oil Press you will find the Bottega del Monte, a simple and welcoming place designed to receive gourmets. Here visitors may taste and purchase directly both the commercial farm’s products as well as a
