The Oil Mill

Tega Family

When you visit Umbria, you can’t be fascinated by its mystical and rural landscape.

Next to the green cultivated plains and ancient woods that border the higher parts of the mountains, you notice endless rolling hills full of olive trees.

The cultivation of this tree was introduced by the Etruscans who were the first to consider olives as a source of richness and prosperity. 

Romans then intensified the production of olive oil and spread its use to all of the Roman Empire.

A Roman city on the banks of the Tiber River called Orticoli became known as the “Port City of Oil” which supplied of olive oil for Papal Rome. In tribute of this tradition, Luigi has named one of his prized oils “Olio del Cardinale”.

Port City of Oil.

Tega is one of the most authoritative and renowned names of quality Umbrian extra virgin olive oil. The Molino il Fattore company is located between two rivers, which in the past fed ancient mills for grain, stone and oil mills, hence the name of the street.

The history of the family’s frantoian tradition dates back to the early seventeenth century, witnessing the original structure, renovated to house the modern oil mill with Sinolea system, a charming Bed & Breakfast and a tasting room where courses are held and guided tastings.

Since 1600’s, the Tega Family’s roots are deeply set in the ancient tradition of master oil millers.

In his oil mill, whose structure dates back to the 15th cetury, Luigi Tega produces rare and precious oils that are obtained by pressing a combination of olives called Moraiolo, Leccino and Frantoio.
