Our Story

Discovering new traditions with centenary heritage

Our story dates back to the beginning of the last century, when our family patriarch Vincenzo, a doctor who believed in the extraordinary health benefit of extra virgin olive oil, continued the cultivation of the olive trees of Tenuta Angillito, that once belonged to the local Church.

 

Our olive grove extends for circa 45 hectares with around 8,000 olive trees of Carolea cultivar and is located near the findings of the powerful Greek polis Terina (c. 400 BC) in Lamezia Terme, Calabria.

 

Inspired by this significant heritage, our family now in its third generation, continues investing in quality and innovation, making Oro Don Vincenzo available to connoisseurs looking for excellent Italian extra virgin olive oil.

 

The name Oro Don Vincenzo is our tribute to our patriarch Vincenzo, addressed by our local community as “Don”. He was extraordinarily  dedicated to the cultivation of his olive trees and the precious gold (“Oro”) extracted from them.

 

Our younger generation has recently successfully re-branded Oro Don Vincenzo, complementing our consistent focus on quality with a smarter yet traditional identity.

 

This has ensured appreciation by famous extra virgin olive oil experts and our presence on the most relevant international guides and awards.
