The name Coppelli is derived from the fact that in the subsoil of our vineyard at the Eco-Farm a spring called the Coppelli emerges. This water is collected and used for the irrigation of our farm. Thus, we have decided to give that same name to our wine, and to a few of our locations such as Coppelli’s Wine Cellar and Grotto and Coppelli’s Olive oil press mill)
I Coppelli olive oil press mill rises from the ancient walls of a drying room used in the past to dehydrate chestnuts, corn on the cob and other products collected from the Portofino hill sides.
We decided to transform it while still keeping its main identity and characteristics.
Our oil mill is now equipped with an ecologically-sustainable system which will become energy self-sufficient quite soon, all the while fully respecting the environment.
The cold crusher ensures the success of the most delicate phase of the entire process when producing the extra virgin olive oil. Inside the oil mill you will also find a multifunctional laboratory for the processing and production of our products. Surrounding the building is a beautiful olive grove integrated with young olive trees, where our poultry ranges free.
We thought about different activities to celebrate our strong bond with nature.
A charming kitchen garden surrounds the oil mill: collect vegetables, fruit and herbs together with our Chef, who then, in a tailor-made cooking lesson, will teach you how to prepare and cook what was selected from the garden using the most appropriate recipe. Just Imagine the quietness of passed times, the light that filters through holes in the drying room, drawing arabesques all around you. You’re in the perfect place, at the perfect moment.
We have a space dedicated to the activities related to the olive oil world and a precious lab where together we can make home-made soaps and candles from our beeswax…or we might prepare the tomato sauce following our grandma’s recipe.
A dinner or special lunch? A day to celebrate? Activities for your children or the family together. These, and many other experiences, can be planned and organized for you at I Coppelli olive oil press mill!
