About the AVUS

The Avus is a tribute to Giuseppeโ€™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 extra virgin olive oil is produced with estate-grown Leccino, Pendolino, Frantoio, Moraiolo, Carolea, and Coratina olives.ย

Made in Italy

All EXAU olive oil is made in Calabria, Southern Italy where our family has been growing olives along the Ionian coast for almost 100 years. The trees benefit from the Mediterranean weather, their native climate.

Our trees range in age from 3 to 100 years old planted over three different generations. We also source fruit from other small, family-owned estates.

What is Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil available to consumers. It must have a free fatty acid of less than 0.8%, peroxide below 20, and be free of sensory defects.

Extra virgin olive oil is produced with healthy and fresh olives harvested from the olive tree. The olive fruit is crushed and milled (pressed) before entering the centrifuge, a machine that separates olive oil from vegetable water and solids. Fresh oil exits the mill which is then filtered and bottled.
