For more than 190 years...

The history of the olive oil mill of Sant’Agata d’Oneglia and the Mela family is inextricably linked to the history of Taggiasca olive trees: a variety which was introduced to the west coast of Liguria by Benedictine monks in 1600.

In 1827, the Mela family – one of the oldest families in Sant’Agata d’Oneglia – began to dedicate themselves to the production of extra virgin olive oil, pressing the sweet, tasty Taggiasca olives with the help of the village’s small stone press, which was operated by expending great physical effort.

Nowadays, this type of press has been replaced by new technology and more modern methods of production, which are able to ensure the quality and authenticity that customers look for and appreciate.

However, even though more modern equipment has replaced the old methods of production, the principles underlying the production of olive oil, and the passion and ability of the Mela family remain unaltered. These are the very values responsible for the success of the traditional recipes of the Mill and its extra virgin olive oil.

Its specialities are the first choice of chefs working in the most famous restaurants, as well as the most discerning delicatessen shops that promote typical Ligurian flavours, in countries as far apart as France and Germany, the United States and Japan.
