DOP - Denominazione di Origine Protetta

Our grove here at Casa Margherita is situated in a DOP area and we have registered it. On Saturday we will have our annual inspection.

Whilst our grove is DOP, as is all of Umbria co-incidentally, the oil that we produce is not certificated as DOP as this is a different and much more costly produce that we have yet to decide to go through.

Some might think that given the grove is DOP then the oil we produce is DOP. Alas were it to be so simple.
