AZIENDA AGRICOLA CUONZO FRANCO DI LETIZIA CUONZO

Slow Food Presidium

The Cuonzo farm was founded in 1970 when Mr. Franco Cuonzo started the production and marketing of extra virgin olive oil, by planting an oil mill with granite millstones in the old family villa. The family-run farm is about 30 hectares of olive grove cultivated in the two varieties Ogliarola and Coratina.

In 2010 Letizia takes over from her father in the management of the farm and converts it entirely to organic farming, adding to the old mill of traditional type, now abandoned but can be visited as a museum, a second line of “continuous” processing of the latest generation, specific for the organic production of olive oil.

For us olive oil is passion and culture:

  • Monocoltivar Coratina / Extra virgin olive oil, organic, 100% from our Coratina variety olives. Slightly spicy and bitterish taste.
  • Monocoltivar Ogliarola / Extra virgin olive oil, organic, 100% from our olives varieties Ogliarola. Sweet, harmonious and delicate taste.
  • Goccia / Extra virgin olive oil, organic, produced with the best olives of each harvest: a real olive juice, obtained by spontaneous outcropping without the need for pressure or centrifugation, following the rules of the ancient olive mill tradition.

The company not only produces and sells its organic extra virgin olive oil in Italy and abroad, but also offers customers, tourists and schoolchildren the opportunity to visit its olive groves and two mills, and promotes the culture of oil with guided tastings.
