Il Molino is based in a stunning hilly countryside in the north of the Lazio region. We are situated between Montefiascone and Tuscania near Lake Bolsena in the heart of the Tuscia area, not far from Viterbo.
Our company owes its name (meaning “the mill”) to a mill that used to stand where our olives now grow, powered by the water from the stream that still ripples through the estate today. The firm has been in Annalisa and Mauro Torzilli’s family since the 1700s. Annalisa in particular grew up watching her grandparents tending this fertile, generous land with unstinting love and respect. She and Mauro have been leading the business for over 30 years now, following the principles of organic farming. The surrounding landscape is a patchwork of flourishing orchards, olive and hazel groves, cereals and vegetables, cultivated with the wise old practice of crop rotation to preserve the soil’s fertility and balance.
We farm our land in line with organic principles, respecting biodiversity and prizing the local native varieties. Of our 250 hectares, 40 are given over to olive groves, and the rest is a mix of cereal crops, orchards and hazelnut trees.
We process the fruits of our soil in our own olive press and workshop, creating organic products that are a genuine expression of the flavours of Tuscia.
