The story of
Oltremonti à Linguizzetta
Our extra virgin olive oil is a superior category of olive oil obtained directly from olives and solely by mechanical means. Our olives are mainly produced from a selection of olive trees of the variety Ghjermana di Casinca which we have reproduced from secular trees in the village of Monte, center Corsica. They are harvested beginning of autumn with a typicity unique to our island. Each of our olive trees is treated with the greatest care guaranteeing optimum organoleptic and nutritional qualities to our products.
Way of life
Our family farm is situated on the East coast of Corsica, right in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. Born in the spring of 2008 our olive grove rests on soft sun-bathed hills caressed during the day by the sea breezes and in the evening by the “muntese”, the fresh winds coming from the high mountain peaks.
Hidden amidst green rolling hills along the Bravone river, Oltremonti extends over 35 ha. Part of our olive grove rests on a 5 ha park together with our mill and the second and largest part of the olive grove is situated one kilometer away.
Our extra virgin olive oil is produced in our own mill which Ivo has equipped and personalized with the latest oil extraction innovations. Our extra virgin olive oil is hence produced entirely on the farm from the olive tree to the olive to the bottle.
We are also equipped to work and produce olive oil for other producers in the region.
