About The AVUS

The Avus is a tribute to Giuseppe’s nonno and rightfully so as he planted most of the olive trees from which this oil is produced. Located 1 km from the Ionian sea the property lays flat. A barrier of protective plants helps to create an environment in which a well-balanced microclimate for the grove thrives. The trees range in age from 100 to 10 years old. Nonno Francesco enjoyed planting a variety of different trees on the same property to encourage natural pollination between cultivars. The result is a grove that feels like an exploration of ancient northern and southern Italian cultivars. The Avus is produced with estate-grown Leccino, Pendolino, Frantoio, Moraiolo, Carolea, and Coratina olives.
