Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The extension of the Buti family's farm is currently 13 hectares, mostly planted with olive trees (frantoiani, leccini, moraioli) and vineyards (Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Malvasia etc.) with a small part planted with woods and fruit orchards.
With the re-cultivation of old olive trees and planting of young olive trees, the total number of olive trees will reach about 2,000 with an estimated production of 2,500 liters of extra virgin olive oil per season.
The municipality of Buti is surrounded by the Pisan mountains that reach a height of 1,000 meters above sea level, which create a barrier around the village and farmsteads, within which, in the valley, is the town center.
These mountains protect the valley from the brackish-laden winds from the sea and partly also from the cold winter tramontana winds, the micro-climate that is created favors the cultivation of olive trees, vines etc... Which produce high quality fruit.
