Born in 1992 from the dream of two friends who are passionate about the olive tree, initially as a farm and since 2002 also as an oil mill, Lucchi e Guastalli was the first to obtain the Riviera Ligure DOP certification and the first in Liguria to use green technology, characterized by the absence of oil waste.

 

In fact, as a natural laboratory for the introduction of new technologies for Liguria, the oil mill recycles the oil by-products: the olive kernel is recovered and destined for heating, while the pomace is sent for the production of electricity at biogas plants.

 

The company produces oil, wine and honey, thanks to its 20 hectares of terraced land, divided into several plots, located in the municipalities of Riomaggiore, Santo Stefano di Magra and Vezzano Ligure. Land management, implemented through controlled grassing, is aimed at maintaining natural fertility and preventing erosion.

The company applies integrated phytosanitary defense techniques, through the priority application of organic farming methods, also to protect the health of bees.

  • The hives are located in the area of ​​the Cinque Terre National Park, and offer, among others, the rare production of heather honey.
  • The olive groves are DOP Riviera Ligure certified, with a prevalence of Razzola olive, the main variety of the Riviera Ligure DOP cultivated in the area.
  • The wine production is mainly based on indigenous white and red vines.

 

The company carries out cultural and educational activities on olive oil, courses for tasters, guided tours of the olive groves and the production plant, conducted by Marco Lucchi, Panel Head of the APOL of Genoa.
The link with the territory is something very strong indeed: in fact, the Lower Lunigiana, crossed by ancient communication routes such as the Consolare Aurelia and the Francigena, is characterized since ever by the cultivation of olives.
