Immersed in the green hills of Umbria and situated between the castle of Torre del Colle of Bevagna and the Santuario della Madonna della Valle, Casa Gola dominates the hill of the same name. An ancient rural residence was converted into a farm in 1997, when Luciana Cerbini and Giovanni Picuti purchased the estate with the goal of restoring it to its agrarian roots and initiating the production of high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Many of you who have visited Umbria with CIU have enjoyed cooking with Luciana on the Casa Gola property over the years, and can attest to her distinctive taste, commitment to authentic ingredients, and warm hospitality.
We have been ordering 5 liter cans of this oil for years, and eventually expanded our order to include neighbors and friends who sought high quality oil in the U.S. at a reasonable price. The oil is a mainstay in our kitchen and we also pour out small decorative bottles to take to friends as one of a kind hostess gifts!
