Arkè Olio di Sicilia
Arkè is the beginning, the fundamental element from which everything originates.
Arkè is the sun and the soil. It is the respect for traditions, it is love and passion.
Arkè is continuous research to create a higher quality olive oil, where typical flavours perfectly match with the local territory. Our extra virgin olive oils arise from the heart of Sicily, on the hills near Caltanissetta, at 600 meters above sea level, in an area which has always been suitable and devoted to growing olives, pure synthesis of an ancient identity.
For over three generations the passion for olive oil production has characterized our farm, which devotedly searches out and selects the best olives to produce an extraordinary quality olive oil.
We are located in the heart of Sicily only a few kilometers from the Mediterranean sea. Arkè is its history, the history of the family. It is values and charm. Arkè means working in an amazing territory.
Our family has dedicated itself to the olive cultivation and the oil production for three generations. Our grandparents started their adventure in the lands near Serradifalco, realizing in that moment their vocation and the potential of the territory. At their arrival to the new farmlands, bought after the war of the 1945, they planted an olive tree as a symbol of their beginning. From this indelible link and the inherited respect, we started to write a new story that shares the same values and the same passion as our grandparents.
Starting from the lands near the town of Serradifalco, where everything began, we extended our research to the neighbouring areas to discover soils, varieties, exposures and microclimates able to express the characteristic of an unrepeatable uniqueness. Loam soils, sandy soils and chalky soils have been the inspiration for the creation of our four extra virgin olive oils:Arkè PGI Sicily, Arkè, Arkè Bio and Kora.
