History & Culture
Vesuvio Estates was established in 1996 by Arturo Dotoli. The Dotoli family have been involved with producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil for generations in the best Italian tradition on their estates, on the slopes of the Vesuvio Volcano in Naples, Italy. In 2008, Antonio (third generation Dotoli), took over the business, gaining invaluable experience by visiting olive estates across the globe, learning the best techniques and methods. His experience and the assistance of a professional Italian agronomist and master oil maker, combines the best of both worlds on this South African farm. The secret of Vesuvio is the passion, pride and expertise spanning generations of oil makers ensuring only the finest award winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil reaches the tables of our consumers.
