This is the first time in the life of our family that we have decided to cancel our olive harvest. In case you have not heard, the growing season (spring, summer, fall) of 2014 has been a very difficult one for Italy, and particularly for Tuscany—it has been too cool and too wet—and the results of many of the fruit crops (olives, figs, grapes, etc.) have been close to devastating. We had hoped that our olive orchards, which are 100% organic, could produce a better crop in spite of these terrible conditions, but unfortunately, it was not to be. We are dedicated to producing only the finest extra virgin olive oil of the utmost quality. Therefore, we have decided to forego the olive harvest because the end result would be a product that we cannot guarantee to be the highest standard that we can sell and stand by with pride.
Fortunately, we still have a supply of oil from the 2013 harvest which has been stored in optimal conditions in our cantina and still is of excellent quality. We will use this supply for our guests who come to stay with us for the 2015 season, and for the needs of our family.
We are so very sorry not to be able to sell and ship to you a beautiful supply of 2014 new olive oil. We hope that you will join us in looking forward, more than ever in our lives, for the next year’s supply—in fall of 2015!
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
