We really liked Matteo’s ‘crash course’ in olive oil. Matteo is incredibly passionate and explained the entire production process of olive oil as well as the differences between real olive oil and ‘supermarket’ olive oil. After the tour which lasted about an hour we tasted the olive oil (and more) which was lovely. Marthe & Wouter

We visited Pornanino olive oil mill in our last day in Toscana, unfortunatelly Matteo was busy due to an error of electrical system in the farm, but his wife Francesca gave us more than enough overview about olive trees (they have 4000 trees), olive harvesting (they are doing it by hands) and olive oil production in their own mill. She knew the answer to every question and even more. Also Matteo found some time to say us hello. Thank you very much, that you showed us your olive oil production and I can say after tasting (we just drank it and applied it to the skin) I have never ever tasted so good olive oil. Of course we bought some bottles, but as they are able to ship it, I'm sure we will order it again.

We called Matteo to buy some olive oil after having read about his mill the day before. Matteo was able to receive us at very short notice and to our surprise, also gave us a very passionate and informative tour regarding the small-scale, traditional production of olive oil at Pornanino, also highlighting the differences with “the industry”. Very highly recommended for anyone interested in high quality, traditionally produced olive oil and the olive oil industry in general.

Constant Companion and I visited Azienda Agricola Pornanino on our culinary tour of Tuscany. Pornanino is unique in that they cultivate their own olives on 36 hectares, hand harvest them by hand to guarantee ripeness, and cold press them the same day in their own mill which assures freshness! This provides the customer with a product that is extraordinary and unlike the adulterated garbage on the market today! The drive into the farm is spectacular, if a bid twisting, but once we arrived we were greeted by Matteo, the son in law of Franca and Lia Lombardy who started this business. Matteo gave us a thorough description of their product and more importantly a list of the problems associated with "fake" olive oil today! Once finished, his wife Francesca, treated us to a tasting of this "Green Gold" on freshly toasted Tuscan bread. They have some gifts for sale here and more importantly you can order their EVO online for shipping to the States. There also are some cottages for rent, which might provide be a nice respite.

Visiting this unique farm with friends from Livorno we hadn’t seen in 27 years was truly a wonderful experience. Our friends drove and oh what breathtaking views we had through this part of Tuscany. Many of the roads are unpaved, very curvy and yet this is part of the rustic charm. Matteo is the 2nd generation in the family business and we certainly hope not the last! He explains what types of olives are used and why, when and how the olives are harvested, the whole production process, why they aren’t part of the organic program and most interesting to me was what makes their small farm so unique and so important to support. We purchased their home made olive oil soap and are anticipating the mid December arrival of our pre-ordered oils. To taste the difference in the oil is proof that this family are masters of their craft and we will be repeat customers as are so many others.
