This year has been quite challenging: 3 extremely hot and dry months till September, with temperatures up to 42 celsius in the shade.
The olive trees went in protection mode and the fruits ended quite dry till about 2 weeks before harvest time at the end of October.
We had some rain mid october but it was too late to improve the quantity and had some impact on the quality of the olives.
Bottom line is that we had a small harvest and low yield, altogether 150 liters of Poggiarello EVO
Fortunately some of our friends in the valley have a very different soil, water availability and exposure. we are confident that we can offer local EVO of premium quality asap
Beyond Tuscany, we are in collaboration with mills and producers and our list of Italian EVO of quality will be soon on display on this site
