andare per cantine

The cultivation of olives, widespread since ancient times, produces a particularly popular extra virgin olive oil in the area, the real secret of the kitchen that the many local mills still obtain grinding with a stone mill or by traditional methods, to ensure a pure product. From November to February, many local mills introduce the new oil with a tasting of bruschetta, toasted bread scented with garlic (for those who like it) and plenty of oil.

For the oil, there is a protected denomination of origin, covering the Colli amerini, and the Municipality of Amelia is part of the Association “Strada dell’Olio DOP Umbria”. created to fully value this typical product of excellent quality, the extra virgin olive oil, present in the species moraiolo, leccino, rajo, frantoio, in a territory that being, to a large extent, still devoid of the presence of parasites, does not require the use of fungicidal substances, thus allowing a completely natural cultivation.
