THE D’AMATO FAMILY HAS BEEN PRODUCING OLIVE OIL SINCE 1870
The D'Amato Company is in fact one of those enterprises that have been able to preserve their vocation at their best for over a hundred years. Today the company has 160 hectares of olive land with 20,000 olive trees. Olives are picked directly from the tree at the right stage of ripeness and do not touch the ground during harvesting operations. Within 24 hours of gathering, the olives are pressed and undergo cold extraction thus producing organic extra virgin olive oil that keeps the organoleptic characteristics typical of the raw material unchanged. All manufacturing processes are also carried out in compliance with health and hygiene regulations, without altering the origins and traditions of the product. The D'Amato Company is located in Veglie (LECCE) in the green Salentinian countryside (Apulia region), a land kissed by the sun, just 10 km away from the sea.
