The need to create an independent oil mill in order to personally follow every phase of the processing of olives into oil has always been a fixed idea of the family. It is said that already in 1800 one oil mill was created inside the property even if for several events it never managed to be put into operation. Today the company boasts a splendid oil mill immersed in the evocative landscape of the Masseria Perpetua: a great source of pride but also a concrete way to check the purity of the oil from production to bottling.
Future and past
The mill, completed in 2015, symbolically represents the heart of the company. A refined and modern design building that integrates perfectly with the surrounding landscape rich in history and tradition. Capable of leaving everyone breathless, with its nearly 100 square meter dome made entirely of glass, Frantoio Schinosa also stands out for its cutting-edge technological equipment, capable of ensuring a product of the highest quality.
Cure and Safety
The extra virgin olive oil that is made in the Schinosa oil mill is 100% pure and free from contamination with oils produced by third parties. The control of each production phase allows to monitor in an automated and very accurate way the temperatures and the creaming times, thus ensuring an extraordinary product, perfect from every point of view. Here, the attention never ends: the extra virgin olive oil is stored in silos which are subsequently filled with nitrogen under pressure to avoid oxidation of the extra virgin olive oil and preserve its quality over time.
A look to the future
Schinosa extra virgin olive oil, cold extracted from native olives, contains all the charm of our land in its extraordinary flavor. Thanks to cutting-edge technologies and the wisdom of peasant tradition, our oil stands out for its genuineness, for its innate beneficial properties and for the richness of polyphenols and vitamin E.
““Every olive tree it is like a member of our family. A father, a grandfather, a great-grandfather. We leave them the task of telling the story of our family in the world, through our centuries-old oil ”.
Coratina is the Apulian olive par excellence. Known for its intense taste and richness in polyphenols, very powerful antioxidants that give it the typical bitter aftertaste and the sensation of slight spiciness when tasted.
Peranzana is a variety with a round and elegant taste. Its taste is unmistakable, sweet, a perfect balance of bitter and delicate that amazes the palate at every taste and that conquers even the most demanding.
An extra virgin with the scent of the countryside in spring, which fills us with pride. This blend is made from an ancient recipe handed down in the Di Martino family generation after generation to maximize the flavor of fresh olives. In fact, this oil is cold extracted within 6 hours of harvesting from olives from all the Apulian lands of the company, in Trani.
