The Olive Harvest

Despite the many amazing wines and food products made in Loreto Aprutino, the town and the wider region is known for its amazing extra virgin olive oil. Each year, the olives are harvested by hand. The harvested olives are then given to a local frantoio (olive oil producer) who press the olives within 24 hours in order to ensure all of the natural flavour and organoleptic properties of the olives are preserved. The harvest isn't just a means of production, it's a tradition that forms the very backbone of the local community in the village.
