From Tree to Table

September & the olives are looking good
In October the nets go out

The olives are ripening beautifully

Time to begin harvesting

Sacked up ready for the oleificio
Oleificio San Francesco

The process begins with sifting prior to being washed

Washed, ready for pressing

These are OUR olives being pressed!

And the 2013 vintage comes out of the press

Transfer to our oil can begins the old fashioned way

But hubby prefers this way
35 litres of extra virgin olive oil now rest in our kitchen
And our final bottle of 2011's oil is waiting to be started at lunchtime
