The Planeta olive grove extends for 98 hectares in the Capparrina district, a natural oasis of great beauty, and sloping towards the sea. Planeta’s decision to dedicate this land to olives was not random. It was both an ethical and aesthetic choice in order to safeguard the landscape and its nature, to make the most of the land and to create employment. It provides an alternative to the uncontrolled use of concrete, proof that other possibilities exist for the management of the unique heritage of our coast. The varieties of olive cultivated at Capparrina are those of local tradition; Nocellara del Belice, Biancolilla and Cerasuola. The harvest takes place early at the beginning of October. The olives are picked manually and processed within a few hours at the press situated in the centre of the olive grove to ensure the best tasting results. Our continual research into quality has allowed Planeta olive oil to win several national and international awards
