The olive grove covers 3.6 acres and is divided into two sections.
The older section of around 1 acre, is parallel to the vineyard, with around 400 trees of
7 different varieties: moraiolo, frantoio, leccio, pendolino, mignolo, grappolo, and rossellino.
The other, north facing, of around 700 trees: pendolino, frantoio, moraiolo and leccio. Other olive trees
scattered over the farmland bring the total to 1,300 trees.
We manage our olive groves using the biodynamic method, enriching the soil
with green manure from leguminosae, in particular tick-beans; in the future we are planning
to create a stable meadow of lucerne (alfalfa) to ensure the soil
is kept perfectly aerated and soft thanks to the roots of this grass
which penetrate and work their way through the soil.
