MILLSTONE: CULTURAL HERITAGE
The olive oil history has evolved significantly since the invention of the ‘trapetum‘. As early as 7th century B.C. the first, known to man, milling techniques are entering the scene. The application of the first cylindrical stone crusher marks the start of a new era for olive oil production. It was only a matter of time before an olive oil revolution ushered. Next, the introduction of a new rotary mill with a pair of millstones transports the olive oil production to a new level. Unlike the cylindrical crusher, it offered the advantage of one-way movement, permitting for the first time in olive oil history the use of animal power during the milling process. The famous ‘8’ rotations per minute (rotation period of millstones) set a new milestone in the known olive oil world.
Reviving this legacy through the advancement of traditional milling practices, inspired our vision and revealed an unparalleled olive oil quality, impossible to reproduce though modern techniques.
