Montedoro (Sicilian: Muntidoru) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Caltanissetta in the Italian region Sicily, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) southeast of Palermo and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) west of Caltanissetta.
"Le radici di un albero vanno in profondità...
...quelle di questi ulivi arrivano al cuore."
"The roots of a tree go deep ...
... those of these olive trees reach the heart. "
Our grove in Montedoro is run by a family owned olive grove who invites you to live the experience of the oil ... from the harvest to the final product, by visiting their olive groves and the oil mill and ending the day with simple things, such as hot bread and freshly made oil, managing to take your mind away from everything and everyone.
The cultivars planted in the olive grove are Moresca, Carolea, Nocellara del Belice and Biancolilla olives.
Since 2012 we have planted Olive Trees all over Sicily and in 2021 will we be planting in Italy. Let us reconnect you with your Italian & Sicilian Roots!
