Reschio houses around 4,000 olive trees – quite enough to keep everyone on the estate rich in olive oil all year round.
Many of the houses have private olive groves which the estate manages and maintains for owners. The olives are harvested in October. Once pressed at the Castello, where the old equipment and grinding stones can be seen still today, they are now sent down to the local olive mill where a method of spremitura a freddo or cold-pressing produces a far superior extra virgin oil.
Oil can be bought at the Bottega and in office at the Tabaccaia.
