DOP Olive Oil

DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) is the Italian system of product protection based on the EU system introduced in 1992.

It signifies that the product is traditionally and entirely manufactured (prepared, processed and produced) within the specific region.

Umbria is unique in Italy as it is the only region within Italy where the entire production of olive oil is covered by the DOP status.

There are five DOP regions within Umbria and Casa Margherita falls within the Colli Assisi-Spoleto DOP area. If you are interested to find out more then please go to for more information.
