Gonnelli 1585 is a trademark that represents the relationship between the Gonnelli Family and the world of traditional oil production. In 1585 the family bought the farm of Santa Téa and the related Oil Mill built in 1426. Today the Gonnelly family, also owner of the Frantoio di Vertine in the Chianti Classico, represents one of the Italian excellences in the world of Extra Virgin Oil. The philosophy has always been to offer a healthy, genuine and natural product and this is only possibile by following directly every phase of the production: for each process we apply new innovative technologies to obtain an excellent product. A company that achived several millestones in the sector and has been a continuos endorser of the importance of oil as food with innumerable nutritional and health-related properties, as well as bearer of taste and value in every dish and preparation. Today Gonnelli 1585 offers a wide and varied range of products that includes sixteen different oils with their various tastes and aromas.

A few steps from the mill is the historic Bottega di Santa Téa, which offers the opportunity to taste and buy the various types of extra virgin olive oil produced. Thanks to the accurate and careful cultivation and selection of the olives and the monitoring of all the production phases of the supply chain, from the field to the table, we can obtain excellent products differentiated by flavors and aromas, from the most bitter and spicy to the sweetest and delicate, allowing you to choose your favorite.

In 2007 the Santa Téa Oil Mill was the first oil mill in the world to obtain the ISO 22005: 07 certification for traceability. A further guarantee for the consumer who is able to trace the history of every bottle purchased as far as its territorial origin.
It is an important goal reached by our company, in line with our philosophy. Traceability certification represents not only the instrument to safeguard and promote our uniqueness but also the symbol of transparency and guarantee that we offer to our consumers, increasingly in need of reassurance and confidence with regard to the food products they buy. It is a kind of map of the product which makes it possible to retrace the history, from the origin of its olives until production of the oil.

The story of the Gonnelli family

The story of the Gonnelli family dates back to 1585 when on the 13th of February the brothers Francesco, Lorenzo and Giulio, the sons of Taddeo di Michele di Lorenzo, bought for 300 coins from the Friars of the “Convento del Carmine di Firenze” the farm of Santa Téa, as proven in the sales document held at the Public Notary Records office in Florence. At that time the related oil mill, built in 1426, was known and appreciated for its special oil, the result of olives made noble by the particular micro-climate of the sun-baked upland plain of Reggello, 400 meters above sea level, which is 30 minutes from Florence in a southerly direction. Since then the Gonnelli family, brothers, children and grandchildren, raised in the shadow of the Frantoio di Santa Téa, monument of hard work of yesterday and today, handed down a true art, with all the knowledge, wisdom and expertise in the cultivation of olives and their pressing. The artisan arts of olive growers, developed at the time of the medieval guilds, still preserve the techniques and secrets of the task of producing the finest oil. An art that derives from the best tradition of the oil mill, preciously preserved in the museum and from the ongoing experimentation in innovation research, both in relation to production and cultivation.
