The History

The Ruta Olive Oil Mill is a family before being a company. This is a crucial detail in understanding the value of the specialized work we do that is built on tradition since 1953 and having been passed down from father to son. It is a tradition directed towards innovation in the industry and the pursuit of cultural development of the area. The company’s founder was Francesco Ruta (Don Ciccio) who built the first oil mill and hydraulic presses. Today, his son Giorgio along with his wife Valeria Anna, and their children manage the company with the same passion, dedication and enthusiasm in the cultivation and care of the olive trees, cold press oil extraction, and in the innovation of production processes. Each step is the result of careful craftsmanship in full respect to nature and traditions.

The oil mill

The oil mill was founded in the 50’s on the hills of “Castelluccio,” an old and small village situated at the base of the Iblei Mountains that overlooks the typical scenery of the Val di Noto area. The oil is produced and extracted with a limited yield (the average is 13-14%) from a cold press process, done within 6-8 hours from the handpicked harvesting.
By doing this, the organoleptic quality of the oil is fully preserved despite a loss in production quantity. The oil obtained from continuous cycle milling is stored in a cool dry place at a constant temperature of 14 ° C in stainless steel silos.
The current extraction systems are the result of continual adjustments that the company does to obtain a superior oil with a fragrant perfume of fruit, herbs and tomato.
The varieties of olives grown on the farm are: Moorish, Verdese, Tonda Iblea, Biancolilla and Nocellara del Belice.
