These olives boast a crisp, tender bite with an irresistibly mild, buttery-sweet flavor. Perfect for pairing with other Italian antipasti like dry cured salumi, sharp Italian cheeses. Delicious with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

Azienda Agricola Sciauro di Sicilia
Located off the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in Castelvetrano, Sicily, Sciauro di Sicilia has an impressive property spanning 30 acres in the heart and soul of the gorgeous Valle del Belice. Sicily’s rich history weaves a story of colonization, a dramatic and romantic tale of great military and political powers vying for control of the land and its productive wealth – olives. Sciauro di Sicilia is owned by Doctor Calcedonio Calcara, a lover of olive oil and a highly appreciated producer who has respect for his land and its traditions. He has a loving and gentle approach to his olives, pampering each tree as children and knowing them one by one: some are young, thin seedlings of a few years, while others are ancient olive groves with large foliage and twisted trunks. Each step of the production process is carefully monitored to ensure the highest quality. The olives are harvested by hand with a small team of 3 people, each bringing a highly specialized skill to the task. Then the olives are pressed immediately and each bottle is filled, labeled and numbered by hand.Read more
