Like a journey back in time, traveling along old roads buried deep in Molise’s green hills with their rarefied air and ancient ambiance; here in this gently undulating Italian countryside is where Marina Colonna’s extra virgin olive oil came to life. The origins of the relationship between an ancient Roman family and this farmland on the border between Molise and Puglia dates back to the beginning of the 1800s. There are now vast stretches of olive groves, wheat and sunflowers. The olive groves cover 55 hectares, half of which are organic, with over 15 cultivars. Colonna values each stage of production, from tending the plant to extracting the oil, and understands its importance in achieving a high quality extra virgin olive oil with all the fundamental olfactory characteristics, flavor and health benefits, making it an indispensable part of our everyday healthy diet.
