The Olive Grove

The Masseria ("stone farmhouse") Guidone is located in the Torre Santa Susanna e Mesagne area, in the province of Brindisi (Apulia). It consists of an impressive group of buildings, and many typical features such as, ancient sheepfolds, dry stone walls and a picturesque courtyard with antique threshing floor. It has belonged to the family of the present owners for more than a century. Its territory is characterized by a specialized, irrigated, intensive olive grove of ca. 16.000 trees of the best varieties, which occupy its entire area of about 80 hectares.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The production of our extra virgin olive oil begins at the end of October, when the olives, before they are completely ripe, are gathered directly from the trees, so that they never fall to the ground. The olives are cold pressed within few hours from the harvesting and produce an extra virgin olive oil which is naturally green in colour with yellow reflections. In order to get rid of the remaining impurities, the extra virgin olive oil is finally filtered.

Organic

Our extra virgin olive oil production follows strict organic farming methods, which imply the total absence of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In agreement with the Regulation (EEC) n. 2092/91, alternative methods like eco-traps or liquid traps are used for controlling the olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae) and Bacillus thuringiensis-based insecticides for the defence from tignola and Margaronia unionalis attacks, as well as synthetic fibers on the tree trunks for the capture of the Otiorhynchus cribricollis. The controls are made by Bios Srl.

Traceability

Our extra virgin olive oil production is certified by a system of traceability, which traces all production phases, from tree to the bottle final destination. This means that the consumer can trace the history of the oil standing on his table, going back through its extraction method, the persons involved in its processing and the source of the raw materials. Thanks to Unaprol's traceability system, which complies with UNI 10939:2001 standards, the origins of the product are documented and the parties involved are identifiable, thus guaranteeing safety and transparency for consumers.
