At the junction of two mountain streams in the center of Tuscany is a place the Etruscans named Sàgona. The Romans built a temple to honor the sacred waters and later there was a small, stone church dedicated to St. Lucy, patron saint of vision and light. Now at Sàgona Daniele Corrotti and his team organically farm grapes and olives for wine and oil and vegetables for the Sàgona farm restaurant.
At Sàgona we aim for excellence trying to make the best extra virgin olive oil humanly possible. Sàgona olive oil reflects the territory in which it was made: the slopes of Pratomagno, a mountainous zone to the south of Florence in the province of Arezzo.
We try to work with respect for the land, for the people who work the land and for our ancestors who hauled the boulders for the dry stone walls and planted our olive groves. To guarantee the best quality and with respect for the olives, for the oil itself and for our customers, we have our own avant-garde frantoio, equipment that helps us delicately extract the oil maintaining intact the high quality, flavor and health benefits of the oil as it exists inside the olives.
Sàgona olive oils are available through a few specialty retailers worldwide and we sell directly from the farm. For information and purchases:
