Our Company

It all began here, in an old oil mill in the heart of the city of Alghero, Sardinia. It was 1916 when the Manca Family, one of the oldest olive oil producers in Italy, started its milling activity. In 1975, after years of hard work and profound passion, the San Giuliano brand was created and still sees us committed with the same determination today.

Sardinia is a unique territory, where nature is truly capable of producing exceptional fruits. Here we produce our DOP Sardegna Extra Virgin olive oil – exclusively from olives from the North of the island – and the single variety “Bosana”, the Sardinian olive par excellence.

The oil has a bitter taste. Does it mean it is bad?

No, the bitter taste - together with the fruity and spicy note – is one of the positive attributes of the Extra Virgin olive oil. It denotes the presence of antioxidants, such as polyphenols, of great value to our health. Its intensity depends on the variety of olives and on their degree of ripeness at the time of pressing: the greener the olives, the more bitter the oil.
