What to expect

Today we are going to take you on a tour of the fine Canino extra virgin olive oil directly at the farm! We will start our visit at our company olive oil mill in the beautiful countryside of Tuscia, not far from Rome.

There we will have a lesson on extra virgin olive oil, its history, and the physical, chemical and organoleptic characteristics of Canino olive oil. You will learn more about the different cultivars, their distribution in Italy and around the world, and cultivation methods.

We will visit the olive oil mill to explain how the Canino olive oil is collected, pressed and stored. We will show you how to read the label correctly and the costs of a quality extra virgin olive oil.

We will taste three types of monovarietal olive oil from our own production, comparing them with a commercial oil and giving you advice on how to combine them and use them to best effect in the kitchen.

We will continue with the tour to discover the famous Canino olive oil with a visit to four of our olive groves (Gioacchina, Monte Freddo, Spinicci and Capo Terzo) in a caravan, with our own car following the company Jeep. During the tour, we will give you information about olive cultivation in Tuscia.

We will conclude the experience by enjoying a final aperitif at the little house in our highest olive grove.


The Food Expert: two people and the love for a territory, that of the Canino countryside, in the heart of Tuscia. This is the beginning of the adventure that brought me, along with my life companion, to put down roots in this land and then, almost inevitably, to become producers of monovarietal extra virgin olive oils.

We produce extra virgin olive oils from five different cultivars (Canino, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino and Frantoio) and from single plots. Our olive groves are mainly located on the volcanic soil of Canino and neighbouring municipalities. We’ll let you discover all the benefits and taste the famous Canino olive oil together.

Two people and the love for a territory, that of the Canino countryside, in the heart of Tuscia.

This is the beginning of the adventure that brought me, along with my life companion, to put down roots in this land and then, almost inevitably, to become producers of monovarietal extra virgin olive oils.

Our vision is ambitious: to enhance monovarietal extra virgin olive oils in their original territories, creating gourmet oils with a wide range of flavours and aromas. We want to enhance the essential flavours of monovarietal oils and the variability of their taste “year after year”, without trying to keep the taste “constant” with mixtures of more varieties.
