Selection by Olio Santa Barbara

In the 10 hectares of olive grove, partly historic, partly newly planted, monumental specimens and young plants stand side by side. The territory is that of the hills on the outskirts of Chieti, at an altitude between 100 and 180 meters above sea level.

The soil in which the roots of our olive trees sink gently slopes towards the North-East and is composed of clay and sandy marls of a gray-yellowish color from which limestone pebbles emerge. Exposure to sea breezes from the nearby Adriatic creates an ideal microclimate for olive growing.
