The Oleificio Basirico olive oil company lies on the beautiful sloping plains of Mount Erice in Sicily where they apply the latest technology for their oil press and grinding equipment. The oil is extracted using a continuous extraction cycle made entirely of stainless steel. During the course of the day, the olives are picked by hand and briefly stored in well-ventilated containers and then cold pressed the same day. The freshly-extracted oil is then stored in stainless steel containers where the natural settling process is allowed to occur before being bottled resulting in an outstanding quality product.
