Olive mill in Liguria, Sanremo

Olive mills & Olives in Liguria

Liguria is famous for its healthy and especially good olive oil. It is considered the best in the world among connoisseurs

The Ligurian hinterland is dominated by wild romantic valleys and terraced olive groves. Land rows are divided into small portions to ensure that everyone takes good care of his piece of land. Some of these are difficult to reach and are on steep slopes. Olives are grown at altitudes of up to 600 m.

The Taggiasca Olive is the olive variety mainly grown in Liguria

These were cultivated by the Benedicitan monks in the 11th Century in the course of organized olive growing and they spread quickly over the whole region. One of the reasons was that the mild good taste was very fruity and aromatic; it is regarded as particularly healthy. The relatively small olives are harvested in the season between November and March and grow in terrassed locations in the slopes.

Finely meshed nets are spanned below the trees

The farmers and their helpers hit against the branches with wooden sticks so that the fruit fall. About 10 kilos of olives are harvested per person per hour. The olive mill is able to do a cold press of 20 percent of it, which is equivalent to about 1.6 liters. Over 5 million olive trees thrive in the Imperia Province which is the main growing region.  Each plant yields 3-8 liters of oil.

Good cheap olive oil is non exisistent in Liguria because its yield is very costly. The oil maintains its quality when it is stored in the dark at 12-16 degrees. You can purchase it from the markets, grocery stores (Alimentari) or directly from the oil mills. If you want to know more about the history of the olive trees, we recommend that you pay a visit to the Olive Oil Museum "Museo dell'Olivo" in Imperia Oneglia.

    • The rare 'Taggiasca Olive' used in Vittorio Cassini's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil can be considered, in today's terms, an organic crop in accordance to European rules of farming and harvesting. The trees producing this olive are cultivated on the Ligurian hills of Perinaldo, Baiardo and Apricale, between 500 and 700 metres above sea level. Here they are unreachable by the insects that damage crops and so the plants have no need for any chemical treatment.

      The olive trees are fed exclusively by the natural elements. The harvesting is done by hand and this permits the selection of the finest quality olives. The cold press method used is known as the 'ciclo continuo', a new procedure that avoids oxidation or deterioration to the oil. It is only after this process that a very low acidity olive oil is obtained - which of course means the purest, cleanest taste. The above-mentioned process takes one hour to produce 50/60 litres of oil.

      In ancient times because of its purity, Ligurian olive oil was used as a medicine. Nowadays, it is considered a balanced condiment that has many of the essential natural nutrients the human body requires. Light and easy, it is digestible for people of all ages.

      The delicate fragrance, the intense yellow colour with a fresh artichoke fragrance and a pleasant after-taste of almonds, distinguish this oil. It is ideal for Mediterranean recipes and more, as it gives balance to simple dishes and enhances all flavours.

      The Cassini Family has been producing olive oil for more then seven generations. Olives are still harvested from the original trees planted over 200 years ago. To get a better quality of extra-virgin olive oil, Vittorio Cassini's farm has a limited production
