Oleificio Covato

This is where the local olives are taken after harvesting to be pressed and made into Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You can arrange for a short tour of the facility and see the machines in the factory there. If you are there in October to early November you may be able to watch the actual process.  We have a short video of the process in our Links/Video section.
