Azienda Olivicola Petrazzuoli
The Olive Oil Company “Petrazzuoli” is located between the hills of Caiazzo (a small town nearby Naples), in the town of Ruviano, an excellent district for the production of the extra-virgin olive oil, as a part of the European Union projects “City of Olive Oil” and “High Quality Olive Oil”.
The Company “Petrazzuoli” extends to over 70,000 square meters, exclusively cultivated with olive trees, most of them centuries-old, that color and scent the landscape. Petrazzuoli family has an ancient history that goes back to
the twelfth century, when the Prince of Capua entrusted the management of his lands to some members of the “Petra” family, which started the production of olive oil with craftsmanship. Petra’s olive oil, already renowned at the time, gave its contribution to change the family name from “Petra” to “Petra-zzu-Oli”, including forever in its name the family tradition. In recent years, the family descendant Giovanni Petrazzuoli, recovered and restarted the renowned olive oil production, reconnecting to the old Petra’s farming techniques such as the
“green manure” (a natural and efficient method to fertilize the soil with the nitrogen of leguminous cover crop, a method utilized also in organic agriculture). This technique allows respect for nature during the entire production chain, assuring a fresh and genuine product.
Olive trees are fed and cuddled as the expectant mother feeds her child in the womb, ensuring a healthy and vigorous growth of the tree, and without artificial handling give their fruit, allowing the making of a precious product: extra-virgin olive.
