Via Madonna del Soccorso SAN VITTORE DEL LAZIO - (FR)
ARS AVI was founded in 1950, born from the passion of Alberto's, the family "grandfather", who planted and took over the trees of the Leccino, Frantoio and Moraiolo olive cultivars in San Vittore del Lazio, to process them in his olive oil mill in the province of Frosinone.
Alberto - the "grandson"- welcomes me. He has recently begun to collaborate in the company.
We start the visit.
The Olive Oil Mill
Sight, smell taste: to promote the culture of olive oil also means sensorial education. This is the spirit which animates ARS AVI to join together people who are curious and passionate about olive oil, to explore the existing connections between the territory, food, senses and emotions. Specifically, ARS AVI offers the opportunity to:
· Visit the oil mills
· Stroll around to discover the olive groves
· Participate at olive oil tastings
· Join food tours
Ars Avi commits in spreading the culture of tasteful and healthy especially among the new generations.
During the harvesting and olive pressing season, the company offers educational days for students of all ages. A guide accompanies and shows the participants the production process and explains the different stages of olive processing. To learn how to know and recognize olive oil, the company organizes the "Workshops of taste", specific meetings to illustrate the qualities of olive oil, aimed at showing how to distinguish among the different products on the market.
The Olive Tree Grove
The terrace in front of the building offers a splendid view of the olive grove and the valley below.
It is a beautiful day. Cicadas sing like in a concert: summer is all around. Also the moon contributes to this scenographic setting
The olives are growing well: it will be an excellent vintage.
We end our tour looking forward to the next visit for the harvesting and processing of olives.
See you soon!
