The “Santa Venere” Organic farm, extends for 150 hectares, on the hills of an ancient little Calabrian village called Cirò, in the province of Crotone, particularly known for its history and culture. It’s an area considered extremely valuable for wine and olive growing. The Scala family have been the land owners since the 1600′s. They have always devoted themselves to the cultivation of Vines, and Olives, but until recently nothing of the current farming complex existed. Initially there was only the Scala family home, attached to an ancient oil mill with a heavy stone grinding wheel, ( still kept carefully conserved) , which was worked by cattle, to crush the Olives. The vineyards, at that time, produced only grapes which were then directly retailed. From 1960, Federico Scala (grandson of Falcone Lucifero, minister of Real Casa) took charge of all these activities. He built a farming complex, detached from the family home, which he called “Santa Venere” after the name of the stream that passes through the property. Other info on www.santavenere.com
