Frantoi Cutrera Olive Oil

The main strength of Cutrera Sicily olive oil is the geographical location of its olive groves, which cover about 50 hectares. Here the olive trees have thrived for thousands of years in their natural habitat. The techniques of olive cultivation, harvesting and processing used have their roots in the history of the island.

The second strength of Cutrera’s Sicilian extra virgin olive oil is their three extraction lines. All the production stages are followed step by step, which makes it possible to produce a very high quality oil. Its third strength is the method of storing the oil in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks in a controlled environment. The use of nitrogen in the bottle maintains all the nutritional and organoleptic characteristics of the extra virgin oil. Finally, Cutrera’s know-how is the last factor that has led to many successes and awards both in Italy and abroad.
