Olive oil from Gemona

In Gemona you have the opportunity to taste an excellent extra virgin olive oil, one among the most awarded in Italy. You can taste it directly from the pressing room of the Fachin farm. Fernanda, organic producer, decided twenty years ago to experiment with the cultivation of olive trees in an area where in winter the cold, if on one hand can damage the plants, on the other hand favors the production of very high quality olives that give beneficial polyphenols to the oil. Today in Gemona, ancient local varieties of olive trees are grown, with a consequent wide range of oil productions. To book a visit with tasting, write to
