The Ravida estate, 'La Gurra', is located on the south west coast of Sicily, 9Km/6 miles away from the agricultural town of Menfi, 120km/80 miles south of Palermo, the capital of Sicily. It lies in the heart of an area still devoted to farming, far from industrialized and developed regions. Dominated by the overlooking Mediterranean sea, the family's 16th century farmhouse is surrounded by vineyards, lemon and olive groves some, existing for centuries. It is here that multi award-winning RAVIDA extra virgin olive oil, praised by food critics as ‘one of the finest oils in Italy’ is produced. Over 56 hectares/180 acres are devoted to oil-producing olives. Alongside the traditional varieties - Cerasuola, Biancolilla and Nocellara - that combine to give RAVIDA olive oil its distinctive flavor, they grow Leccino, Frantoio, SF17 and the odd Kalamata. Cerasuola produces a tasty and fragrant full-bodied oil, Biancolilla, light green in color adds aroma and delicacy whilst Nocellara, gives the oil a hint of fruitiness. Ravida Extra Virgin Olive Oil has an exceptionally low acidity level of 0,10%.
