Many of the best restaurateurs and chefs worldwide, along with the high-quality food industry, have immense respect for Curtrera extra virgin olive oil.
The company’s origins date back more than a century ago. For generations, the Cutrera family has been dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees and olive oil production. The quality of their extra virgin olive oils is also due to the geographical location in the Iblei Mountains, where the centuries-old olive trees have been thriving in their natural habitat for thousands of years.
The techniques of cultivation, harvesting and processing of olives are rooted in the history of the island. The olives are harvested by hand, picked and milled the same day, before being cold extracted and preserved in controlled temperatures. This strict process results in an excellent olive oil that is unmistakably fruity and balanced with bitterness and spice.
