TUSCANY, OUR LAND
Podere San Bartolomeo is a family run company situated on the hills of Santa Luce, in the Pisa region, in the heart of Tuscany. This land, like a casket, contains countless little know wonders: art, history, culture, nature and a lot of knowledges and traditions about food and wine. The rich cultural heritage is all one with the wholesome and authentic tastes of Tuscany, and also the spontaneity and vitality of the people, the rural landscape and natural protected areas, like the beautiful lake which faces our farm.
A land where you can appreciate "slow life", through medieval village, sweet hills and the sea horizon, a land where you can discover the true Tuscan good living. Since many years we defend and work on this beautiful land to continue an ancient tradition: high quality extra virgin olive oil production and the production of wheat with low content of gluten.
All our oil is from our own olive trees, we have 1.500 trees, youth and century-old ones. We cultivate only Tuscan typical cultivars as Moraiolo, Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Lazzero.
This last cultivar, Lazzero, is an ancient one, it is a native cultivar of Pisa and Livorno area. To defend its uniqueness and to prevent it from disappearing, we contributed, through the production of a monocultivar extra virgin olive oil, to the creation of a "Slow Food" presidium which want to defend and valorise this ancient Tuscan variety.
