Ursini is a family before being a company, a group of olive growers and its fruitswhose destiny is already written in its nickname Puti which means olive pruner in dialect. As early as the nineteenth century the members of this family were consider as master experts and were among the most requested by landholders for advice on caring for olive groves. Today such knowledge is enriched and expanded into various forms of producing oil, benefitting from the creativity and innovation innate in Ursini's Family DNA: the incomparable extra virgin in all its expressions, but also many specialities with new and surprising flavours, albeit linked to tradition and with the common denominator of extra virgin olive oil. An offer of absolute quality which does not permit compromises and allows the freshness of the best raw materials to be enjoyed all year long.
Ursini is in Fossacesia in the heart of Abruzzo, the green region of Europe in which there are three national parks and the enchanting Costa dei Trabocchi. A wonderful land in which the calling has always been olive growing, where the quality of life and ancient values allow for no compromises, exactly like Ursini production. For us, authentic excellence only goes through direct and personnel commitment, not delegated to third parties. Our olive groves, family olive-presses, in house-laboratories and directly controlled distribution are components of the chain. Offering the best product is a commitment we undertake in respect of our roots and the great patriarch, that centuries-old olive tree from the eighteenth century which observes us proudly from the garden of San Giovanni in Venere Abbey.
Ursini stands out from other companies starting from its home: no old-school factory and no industrial area, but an ancient site dedicated to the activity of the olive-press and a new and welcoming small-brick structure measuring over 1,400 square metres surrounded by olive groves. Here there is room for the warehouses, offices and above all the kitchen where all our specialities are prepared: situated in the centre of the surface area. The machinery is special too, tailor made for our unique culinary techniques and for soft pasteurisation
WE CONFIDE only in our olive mill.
A key overriding belief at Ursini is that authentic quality can only be obtained in a direct way. This principle has guided us in the choice to only use family own olive mill. Use of our own mill allows us to optimise working with the olives, precisely blending to ensure the quality of the oil:. Working within four hours from harvesting, type of pressing, kneading times and temperature, working the single varieties, choice of centrifugation and soft separation. Ursini is independent. We have no restriction by a hired party and their production standards. Our quality will never be comprised by antiquated extraction methods. Family olive mill therefore is a perfect marriage of artisanal calling and the newest technology available to produce a one of a kind product, that always illicit a response and interest of clients and professionals in the sector.
