High quality extra virgin olive oil

From our fields to your table

Savoir faire and Traceability

The high level qualitative organoleptic characteristics of our extra virgin olive oils and the appreciation of clients who have often become friends motivates me to preserve this precious good, the truest and most authentic expression of this territory.

The long-awaited annual harvest begins at the end of September and lasts through the month of October. The olives are harvested by expert hands with individual machines, placed in ventilated boxes and taken directly to the onsite oil mill.

The mill at Le Amantine

The mill
at Le Amantine

One of the most crucial aspects of oil production is milling, and very often farmers must use industrial mills that can leave remnants of low quality olives to mix with other, higher quality varieties. When I took over Le Amantine, I wanted to make sure that we would control all of the steps in the system so that every drop of oil would be the absolute pinnacle of quality. So we built our own.
If you’ve ever visited the farm you’ll know that the mill is a particular point of pride. As enthusiasts know, to obtain an optimal oil one must start with healthy fruit which is then defoliated and washed. The olives then pass through our 2-phase extraction plant with vertical malaxers, guided by the crusher, who must be calm, competent and passionately dedicated to quality. While the technology is state of the art, it always depends on a human touch.

Throughout the milling process, man and machine work together with a single goal: to bring out the best in the fruit. As anyone who has tasted our oil knows, we work on the sincere desire to craft a product of great value. Low temperature control, immediate cellulose filtration, stainless steel storage and in house bottling guarantee the highest quality oil within a closed and completely traceable environment.
