2024, Sicilia and Toscana olive oil excellences

This year, our combined love for Toscana and Sicilia has a surprising twist.

We are now offering a selection of Sicilia Extra Virgin Olive Oils, we have teamed with a wonderful local frantoio in Sciacca so that you can complement your olive oil cellar with flavors of Biancolilla, Nocellara del Belice, Cerasuola oils

We have decided to do so because both the quality and availability of oil is really top level in Sicilia. Also recently the tensions in the olive oil market has made Toscana E.V.O very expensive and difficult to find.

We are personally supervising the quality and consistency.

You just need to order and they will be shipped to your door.

2023 Production update

This year has been an extremely good year, it was 15 years we did not have such wonderful conditions for the olive grove.

The spring was a little confusing with a mixture of mild temperatures and 3 weeks of strong rain. Rain can be problematic when the olives are flowering: the rain can wash the pollen thus reducing the number of future olives. Many areas around us were hit by that rain during the flowering season, but we were lucky.

We are quite high up and the olive trees flowered just after the strong rains meaning that the pollen had a chance to fly around (pollination for olive trees happen with the wind, not with insects).

Then the summer was VERY hot and dry till September, with temperatures up to 43 celsius in the shade.

The olive trees went in protection mode and the fruits ended quite dry till about 2 weeks before harvest time at the middle of October. The production was late.
We had some rain 2nd half of October, and it was JUST in time to give some water to the trees and fruits. Beginning of November all was set for a wonderful harvest.

Bottom line is that we had an amazing harvest in quality and quantity. The yield was average but quality was good !!!, altogether 250 liters of Poggiarello EVO

There is very good oil available in our area which we can easily source for you once our stock is over.

Beyond Tuscany, we are in collaboration with mills and producers in Sicily and our list of Italian EVO of quality will be soon on display on this site

Welcome to eleiva.it

we look after and live on our olive grove. we have perfected the many steps of cultivating the olive trees and producing the Extra Virgin Oil

we aim to produce our very own best Extra Virgin Oil, called Poggiarello. It is hand picked on our olive grove, milled on the field as quickly as possible after harvest and left to rest and sediment for a short period before being available to you!
This oil has very limited production, in 2021 we have produced only 150 liters

our experience and training as Olive Oil Sommelier make it possible for us to select the very best Extra Virgin Oils throughout Italy, our first selection is Olivello.
It is produced in Seggiano with mainly Leccino, Morraiolo and Frantoio cultivars. The extraction is done daily after harvest in a modern centrifugal mill and left to sediment naturally.

please don’t hesitate and for any questions email us: info@eleiva.it
