San Domenico-Adorno is located at the foot of Mount Contessa, in the territory of Maida, bordering Lamezia Terme Valley. Azienda Agricola San Domenico-Adorno with their century-old olive trees of the Carolea variety is part of the DOP Lametia-certified area.
The farm has been part of the estate of the Votta family since the 16th century. Already at that time they possessed an oil mill whose wheel was driven by the waters of the River Pilla that flows along the estate.
Nowadays, following ongoing research activity, studies and numerous practical applications, the object of producing healthy, optimal fruit preserving the plant’s health and the environment has been achieved: the final product is a single-variety, high-quality orchard.
Olives are shaker-harvested when fully ripe, are pressed right away in the in-house continuous-cycle mill, which processes at low temperatures only olives grown in the San Domenico-Adorno estate through advanced, stainless steel machines.
