The Frantoio of Il Castagno
Pure flavor, infinite goodness: our oil.
The Frantoio of Il Castagno with its 10 hectares of olive groves, is a historic oil mill, the oldest in the area, which processes not only its own olives but also those of third parties. Before the renovation, the extra virgin olive oil was obtained with cold stone mills and the mill was also seen by its customers as a meeting place. Not only was excellent oil produced, but the farmers could also enjoy excellent bruschetta thanks to the presence of the fireplace.
The basis for every great recipe: our oil
In 2015, the Contessa, continuing the tradition, renewed the machinery, making modern as well as one of the best around, always with cold process. From 2022 the mill is open to organic, PDO Terra di Siena and PGI Tuscan pressings.
