In front of the Gulf of Asinara, in Sennori, Sorso and Castelsardo, Azienda Agricola Giuseppe Brozzu's oils came into being, on windswept lands overlooking the sea, accompanied by the sun and dedicated, passionate work.
The company's owner, Giuseppe Brozzu, began his farming experience after many years as an apprentice at a small company called Castelsardo, where he created a "small laboratory" by planting different cultivars in order to identify those most suited to the area's soil and climate conditions.
The choice fell on the Bosana variety, the most widespread in the entire territory of the province and beyond. Today, the plant also hosts Semidana and Nera di Gonnos varieties.
All oils are packaged in their natural monovariety.
The olive groves are located in the hills of Sorso and Sennori in northern Sardinia, in the province of Sassari. They are kissed by the sun and beaten by a strong mistral wind that arrives periodically throughout the year. The sea is near and if you are downwind you can smell it. The beauty of the landscape frames the rows of olive trees and vines that seem to take strength and vitality from the sea air which, in turn, gives immense flavour to their fruits.
The company is registered organic. The control body, "Suolo e Salute", is certified (pursuant to the UNI EN ISO 22005: 2007 standard) for traceability of the product from plant to bottle.
Mentioned in the Slow-Food guide to extra virgin olive. It is also an authorized supplier for farmhouses in Sardinia according to the provisions of the Regional law n.1 / 2010;
Neither chemical fertilizers nor synthetic phytosanitary products are used for managing the 60 hectares of olive groves. Instead, the "green manure" fertilizing technique is used through sowing pulses and other suitable seeds required for the purpose.
All the olive groves are supported by efficient underground irrigation systems. Using an aid/rescue technique for irrigation during the most delicate phases of plant biology helps to achieve higher quality and also ensures good production.
To date, the company is equipped with its own mill and the necessary advanced technology to obtain high quality oils.
