Located on the Tyrrhenian coast in Calabria, half way between Pizzo Calabro and Serra San Bruno, Castle Mutari rises in the heart of a centuries old olive grove
extending over 300 hectares. The castle, constructed in Norman times at the end of the XIIth century, draws on medieval architecture, with a central keep and two crenellated cylindrical towers placed at each side. The estate is located in a place historically famous for the production of extra-virgin olive oil.
The Mutari olive trees, caressed by the sun, have their roots in history with eleven thousand centuries old plants, impressive natural monuments, to which over the years, 16,000 seventy year old plants and 20,000 twenty-five year old plants have been added, giving a total production unit of 47.000 plants.
The south-facing estate lands, 270 hectares of which are organic grown olive groves,
lie at an average of 250 metres above sea level. The Olive trees produce three types of local and traditional cultivar
: autochthonous “ottobratica”, “minuta” and “tonda di Filogaso” sub-varieties.
