The Taggiasca Olive Tree has ancient origins that start in pre-Roman times.
The olive groves are on the Ligurian coast, but the major concentration is on the west side. Imperia, indeed, holds 75% of total production.
The olive’s name takes its origin from the city of Taggia, in the district of Imperia.
During the Middle Ages, indeed, it was an important center for the cultivation of this kind of olive.
We have to thank Benedictine Monks for the spread and cultivation. But also as for teaching the farmers how to build the drywalls.
With hard work the farmers built drywalls situated in Imperia and in the inland. Small valleys around the drywalls well protect them from the wind.
We can absolutely say that in this countryside, indeed, the Taggiasca Olive Trees have found the perfect microclimate conditions to grow.
The oil that we offer you comes from this valley and from these olive-groves that grow from 100 mt to 600 mt above sea level.
