We proudly preserve a historic mill made by the Camplone Foundry of Pescara in the 1950s.
The stone mullers once driven by the force of a horse, the dough dispenser, two 12 “hydraulic presses and the centrifugal separator made up a state-of-the-art system, then updated with an eyelash drive system and finally adapted to electrical operation.
Since 1998 we have embarked on the difficult path of organic farming using a continuous method oil mill for processing olives. It was Domenico Antonio who traced the path of a quality production tradition carried on by his son Gregorio, his nephew Giovanni and today by his great grandson Gregorio Di Luzio.
A few numbers:
Santabarbara oil has been repeatedly reported by the Slow Food and GamberoRosso guides among the best organic oils in Italy. Donna Ludovica has received further awards, including international ones, such as BIOIL and NYAWARD.
