Dr. Berg recommends 2 TBSP of San Michele’s Laudemio Olive Oil daily

One lovely October day during the olive harvest period, Dr. Berg, the renowned health educator and expert in nutrition and diets paid us a visit at Fattoria San Michele a Torri, in Tuscany. Our farm has been producing exceptionally high-quality organic extra virgin olive oil for centuries. He wanted to know more thoroughly about the process of cultivation and production of extra virgin olive oil. And he was in for a wonderful treat. He had the opportunity to walk among the olive groves with Leonardo Francalanci, San Michele’s expert director, where he was able to learn and witness the way our olives are grown, organically in balance with nature, the same way Fattoria San Michele has been producing olives to make its exceptional olive oil for centuries. Dr. Berg was able to experience and taste an extraordinary quality olive oil, our Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 

Laudemio is not a brand of olive oil, it is a quality extra virgin olive oil. Fattoria San Michele’s Laudemio is olive oil’s supreme expression. It is an extraordinary way in which you can taste the perfect blend between soil, environment, and expert agricultural techniques in which the essence of the olives comes to life. Laudemio is the exemplary outcome of centuries-long Tuscan tradition in olive oil production. San Michele Organic Farm decided to make organic Tuscan products its strength, so it is certified to guarantee only the highest organic production. It’s an oil with a complex, fresh taste with herbaceous notes supported by a very pleasant spiciness and a final bitter note that enhances its taste. It is appreciated for its great freshness, complexity, and harmony. Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Fattoria San Michele’s flagship. You can identify a bottle of Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Fattoria San Michele from its octagonal shape, inspired by the retro design of French perfume, and the unmistakable Fattoria San Michele a Torri logo on the bottom.
