Uliveto di Maya is a private 5 acre olive grove just north-east of Rome in a small lightly treaded part of the Lazio region called the Sabines, where olive trees have been part of the rolling hilly landscape for thousands of years. These olive trees planted by the Romans; peaceful weapons used to unify that which they had conquered, are the trees that produced the olive oil the ancient romans in ‘town’ consumed.
The land and these precious trees are meticulously cared for with the help of local farmers, keepers of the artisanal secrets of agriculture that have been passed along through generations. The olives are hand picked and taken straight to be cold pressed into exclusive 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil at the local mill solely by mechanical means. Thanks to the limited production and the traditional methods used, the product guarantees the highest quality and most wholesome essence of this region’s outstanding timeless olive oil.
We hope to bring to your table the unique experience of tasting the juice these trees have kept producing for hundreds of generations, and for you.
