The culture of &' d&' olive oil of the highest quality has been part of the Guglielmi family for several generations and today Luca is the guardian of this important tradition started in 1925 by his grandfather Ermelindo. We are in Tuscany, in a hilly area, but a few steps from the sea and the famous Bolgheri cypresses: this is where Il Bottaccio stands with its olive trees and oil mill. A place appreciated all over the world for its wines, the climate, the beauty of the rolling hills adorned with centuries-old olive groves and capable of producing a noteworthy extra virgin oil.

The Il Bottaccio company consists of 30 hectares of olive groves, partly centuries-old, distributed between the area of Venturina Terme and Monterotondo Marittimo with a variation in altitude from 50 to 100 meters above sea level. It is in this specific geographical area that, thanks to the climatic characteristics, the type of soil, the influence of the winds and the presence of thermal waters that flow underground, those precious and tasty fruits are obtained from which l& #39 is obtained; oil from Il Bottaccio.
