History and Territory

Our company was born in Ceraso, in Cilento in the province of Salerno.

Here the Iannicelli family has been carrying on the tradition of growing olive trees for the production of high quality olive oil for over 200 years.

In fact, the labels of the olive oils "Sopraffino di Ceraso" and "Finissimo di Ceraso" revive the ancient brands of the Iannicelli family, which already in 1800 boasted the prestige of managing an export business capable of crossing oceans to reach the South. America.

Cultivation, fertilization and plant protection methods that are still completely natural today, olive harvesting in the peak period of qualitative performance and rapid delivery of the fruit to the mill within 24 hours are the key elements that have allowed us to obtain the high production standard handed down through the generations. from generation to generation.

The pride and trust in the high level of quality we achieved soon led us to develop the intention of subjecting it to a rigid certification process that would guarantee its authenticity and naturalness in every phase of production, from the cultivation of the plant until bottling.
We have thus achieved the recognition conferred by "Sidel CAB SpA" Organic Agriculture Certification, code 5767, an authoritative certification and inspection body, authorized by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food, Forestry and Tourism Policies and by the Ministry of Economic Development.
We have been rewarded for pursuing a production method based on total respect for agricultural ecosystems, refusing to make compromises such as the use of genetically modified organisms or synthetic products and making use of the only source allowed by the ancient modus operandi: the natural fertility of the Cilento soil.

All this happens in the Cilento Park, which fascinates visitors by offering landscapes that contain centuries of history and anecdotes from our past.
Suffice it to remember that this very land was a crossroads for wayfarers and travellers, acting as a hinge between the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian Sea and thus merging peoples and cultures.

The Cilento Coast also boasts 2 marine protected areas and 10 blue flags, an international recognition that is given to coastal locations that have clean seas and beaches that meet high quality parameters.

We want to invite you to visit this corner of paradise located in the southern area of โ€‹โ€‹the Campania region, in the province of Salerno, an area declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Come and stay in one of our homes that you find on Airbnb and for which we have obtained the title of Superhost, distinguishing ourselves in terms of hospitality, courtesy and service.
