Our Oil

For about the last 8 centuries the production of oil has been a ritual here at Masseria L’Astore. St John’s Chapel (XIII SEC., D.C.) with its Byzantine crypt, located in our estate, is historical evidence of the work of the Basilian monk architects of olive cultivation on the land reclaimed from the Mediterranean. The olive groves are some of the oldest in Salento and our underground oil mill which dates back to the early 800’s , was among the most important of the area.

The taste of tradition

In some corners of our farm, time seems to stand still between the millstones turned by mules and in ‘air you can almost hear the echoes and the heroic struggle of the millers, Masseria L’Astore’s oil is produced from 3 cultivars of olives: Cellina of Nardo or Saracen, Ogliarola and Leccino, coming entirely from the 40 hectares of olive groves.
