The company extends the area of Castelvetrano-Selinunte, in the heart of Valley of Belice, a territory which has always dedicated almost exclusively to the olive grove. Looking for some, in fact, one could not distinguish the boundary between our "sea of olive trees" and the sea that bathes the coasts of the city. Castelvetrano, has ancient origins, its existence is documented starting from domain Angevin. The name of Selinunte instead derives from the Greek Sèlinon, term used to designate theAppio, a sort of wild parsley very highly scented flower that grew abundantly in the area.

The first settlement in the Valley of Belice populations is to tie the birth of Selinunte, ancient colony of Magna Greece, founded by Megarians in the 7th century BC. In ancient Selinus, oil was considered a symbol of peace, wisdom and prosperity in relation to multiple uses that was intended. The Selinuntini cultivated and propagated the oil settling the valleys and fertile land in the hinterland, as evidenced by the grinders for olives date back to the 5th century BC.


So, as told by Pliny Selinus, became a benchmark in trade of Magna Greece and the Mediterranean, thanks to its powerful commercial fleet and the nature of foodstuffs: wine, cereals and oil. The olive tree in years remained the primary culture of the Valley of Belice, is demonstrating its presence as culture typical of Casagrande in 1600. Historical research shows that as early as 1700 it intensely cultivated olive. Today as yesterday, the territory remains inextricably tied to this particular cultivar.
