A precious gift from our thousand-year old olive trees

Schola Sarmenti’s beautiful olive trees have very ancient roots, dating back thousands of years… Their branches rise up to heaven in a cheerful embrace, outlining human shapes… they stay like amazing living statues soaring between heaven and earth. Since ancient times our olive trees have been producing fruit and giving their golden, precious drops, always reminding you the unmistakable scents and flavours of Salento.



In Salento – our generous red land kissed by the sun all year round – clever and patient hands pick olives up directly from trees. A scrupulous selection of the best olives finds its higher expression in Schola Sarmenti Oil that, since forever, is characterized by a genuine and intense aroma as well as a balanced and harmonious taste that make it ideal to exalt any kind of food.
