Do you know the Mediterranean scrub? Lentisk, myrtle, rosemary, broom and euphorbia, holm oak, oak and then the King: the Olive Tree! Perhaps this tree is the symbol of this scrub that resists the dry wind and the arid heat of southern August. Surely landing on the island these are the first fragrances you will smell.
But … have you ever tasted the Mediterranean scrub?
There is a beautiful family that grows olive trees strong enough to resist to a climate that is not always kind but that can give an oil of character that you’ll love.
Corrias family will proudly bring you along the whole milling process inside their organic oil mill, in Riola Sardo.
But it is in the very first weeks of autumn that you can take part in a magical moment, the olive harvest, which their trees give generously. Spending a few hours in their olive groves will be an opportunity to listen to old stories of this amazing world, whose roots are lost in time. You will learn the techniques of harvesting and you will see the whole process of production of a biological oil with precious nutritional properties.
But the love of Corrias family for extra virgin olive oil does not stop there. Yes, because they are able to soften the taste of a noble oil with the aromas of the other plants of the Mediterranean brush.
Corrias have carefully studied the combinations, never common,growing and selecting the plants of the Mediterranean bush right on the seaside so that they can release all the fragrance and scents of the sea in their oil.
