Location

The factory is located in the north of Marche (central Italy), in the territory of Monteciccardo in the province of Pesaro Urbino.

With an area of over 60 ha, in a hilly area where the altitude is 300 meters, the proximity to the sea and the microclimate contribute to forming a perfect habitat for growing olives. 

Land and cultivation techniques 
 

An area of 20 hectares is cultivated with about 7,000 plants of three different types of native olives (Raggiola, Ascolana tender, Rosciola) and two national-type (Leccino and Picholone). 

The plantation is provided with an automatic watering system hooked to a weather station, which is automatically activated and brings a balanced water irrigation and minerals to the entire cultivation.

The use of pesticides is minimized thanks to the placement of pheromone traps and to a regular laboratory sample analysis with electronic instruments. 

Harvesting is done using a vibration shaker which doesn't cause any demage to the olives.

Oil Production

The milling takes place the same day of olives collection. The extra virgin olive oil production process includes:

  • leaves remover
  • washer
  • hammer crushers
  • kneading atmosphere
  • decanter centrifuge  


Il Conventino produces single-variety oils characterized by low acidity with a high number of aromatic substances and antioxidants (polyphenols), which are a concentrate of health and flavor.
