A Pressing Matter
Today, the tradition continues with the family combining ancient techniques with modern technology to produce 30,000 liters of oil annually from organic black olives grown on its orchards.
Secrets of the family business are uncovered during a tour through ancient groves, where an arbiter of taste teaches guests how to sniff out the good from the bad. The day culminates in a four-course meal served inside the dining room of the family mill.
The menu features specialties of the house, which emphasize the culinary heritage of Sabina, in rustic dishes combining ingredients like Roman cheese, pasta, chicken, honey, mushrooms, fruit, and, of course, the delicate, slightly peppery, olive oil. There's a small museum, where the Agamemnon family has collected artifacts and curiosities handed down through generations.
The unforgettable sojourn is made even more memorable with a walk along the ancient Via Salaria and majestic walls of Villa Laberia Crispina, to the site of a medieval castle.
