Luigi Tega and his family have been producing oil since the 1950s. In the green heart of Umbria, at Vescia di Foligno, the Tega family tends olive groves that extend over 18 hectares, and their extra virgin olive oil is the perfect expression of the territory they live in.
Luigi carries on the work begun in 1950 by his family. The will to create an excellent extra virgin olive oil that respects tradition, led the family to acquire new land and new olive groves in the early sixties. 1974 represents an important milestone in the family’s history: it was in this year that the first organic Tega oil was produced, an extra-virgin olive oil obtained from Leccino, Frantoio and Moraiolo olives.
The work of Luigi and the rest of the Tega family allows them not only to produce extra virgin olive oil of undisputed quality, but also to devote attention to their customers and to each production phase, from land upkeep to controlling the different oil mill processes, caring for the plants and harvesting the fruit.
The olive growing vocation of this territory has very remote origins. Suffice it to say that the first oil processing plant that can be traced back to the Tega family dates back to 1500. A part of the ancient structure has been preserved in the current processing plant.
The extra virgin olive oil produced by Luigi is processed in a plant that uses the Sinolea system. This type of processing separates the oil from other substances obtained from olive milling, by exploiting the different surface tension of the oily part of the paste. After milling, part of the oil is extracted through a natural draining system, while the remaining oil is obtained by centrifuging the olive paste. Both processes are carried out cold, keeping the temperature always below 30 degrees.
