EXAU: Nurturing Traditions, Cultivating Excellence in Every Drop

In the sun-kissed lands along the Ionian coast of Calabria, Italy, where the azure sea meets the rugged terrain, a family legacy of nearly a century is carefully tended. It is here, in the heart of Calabria, that the story of EXAU unfolds—a tale of olives, traditions, and the pursuit of high-quality Italian olive oil that transcends generations.

The Calabrian Canvas: Where EXAU Roots Run Deep

Calabria, the picturesque region forming the ball of Italy's boot, is more than just a geographical location. It is a canvas painted with the vibrant hues of olive groves and bathed in the Mediterranean sun.

For almost a century, the EXAU family has nurtured olives on their estate along the Ionian coast, crafting an olive oil that embodies the essence of this fertile land. Calabria, often referred to as the 'toe' that kicks Sicily, is renowned for producing 33% of Italy's olive oil, making it a cradle of unparalleled quality and taste.

Harvesting Excellence: A Centennial Commitment

For almost a century, the EXAU family has followed a time-honored tradition each fall—the harvest and pressing of olives from their groves. This meticulous process, passed down through generations, results in a liquid gold that is more than just olive oil; it's a testament to the dedication and expertise ingrained in the family's heritage.

The commitment to excellence is not only about producing olive oil; it's about preserving a legacy that echoes through the olive-laden hills of Calabria.
