CIAO, WE ARE THE DE MARCO FAMILY. WE ARE OLIVE OIL PRODUCERS SINCE 1885, BUT MOST OF ALL WE ARE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL LOVERS.
In the beautiful Mediterranean landscape of Salento region, very close to the sea, our great grand father, Vincenzo De Marco planted the first olive tree in 1885. At that time, the women living and working in our land, used to wake up singing to our olive trees at sunrise. Thanks to their singing, our olives have been cultivated and harvested in a joyful environment that we worked hard to maintain, through four generations.
Nowadays the harvest has been mechanized but it still starts very early in the in the morning, when the first sunlight comes up. With this method, we make sure the olives never touch the ground and they are happily taken to the mill to become olive oil straight away, within 5 hours of collection. If you want to know more about us and the passion of our family for olive oil, you might want to visit our land whenever you are around.
OUR NEW MILL
IS JUST LIKE OUR OLIVES. GREEN.
Our new olive mill has absolutely no impact on the planet,
thanks to the first system 100% no waste.
This year, we’ve changed oil mill to improve the quality of work on our EVO Oil. This is a great change, for two main reasons: our new mill is now cleaner, more equipped and more professional; this means our daily work turns a bit easier, while our EVO Oil turns a bit better. But most of all, our new mill is the first zero-waste press in the world. We owe this brilliant invention to Giovanni Cassese (Mioolio), who found a way to use extraction wastes to power a Biogas Plant. It’s a real revolution for EVO Oil production worldwide and we’re proud to be through its pioneers.
EXTRA VIRGIN AND EXTRA HEALTHY.

In one word, it’s healthy. 100% recommended for a genuine and natural lifestyle. We’re very proud of these results, which confirms one more time that from hard work and true passion can only come highly quality products.
