TERRE DI ZACCANELLO
ABOUT TERRE DI ZACCANELLO
Terre di Zaccanello for us is not only a place, but a journey into the colors and scents of rural and wonderful Sicily to rediscover the natural rhythms and the simple, authentic flavors.
The roots of our family have been in this land for three generations, since Nonno Alfonso, a former oil merchant, bought the first hectares in the early 1960s and realized his dream of planting an olive grove.
After him, his son Salvatore, while taking care of other activities, has never been able to resist the call of this magical place, to the point of deciding, in 2010, to extend the property to its current size and to launch, together with his wife Daniela, the Oikos project, a Relais immersed in the Sicily of yesteryear, a place that you don't visit, you live.
History repeated itself with their eldest daughter Federica, who, after studying law abroad and working in international law firms, suffered the same call and decided to leave everything to found Terre di Zaccanello, deepen the wonderful world of extra virgin olive oil and obtain a master's degree in food & wine management. Today she is an oil sommelier and runs the company with the help of her sister Giulia and her brother Alfonso and with the indispensable support of the whole family.
