The olive is a natural product. The character of every olive oil is strongly influenced by the variety and by the typical traditional and cultural influences in the region. Every olive oil has a slightly different taste every year, exactly the same case as with wine. The climatic conditions at the time the tree is in blossom and the fruit ripens also significantly affect the quantity and quality of the harvest.

PDO: The „protected designation of origin“ means that production, processing and manufacture of a
product take place in a given geographical area, using a recognized, specified, often traditional method. The Italian equivalent is referred to as „DOP, Denominazione d‘Origine Protetta“.
PGI: The „protected geographical indication“ states that at least one of the stages of production – i.e.
