A magic Region, suspended between Lazio, Umbria and Abruzzo, full of traditions of a millenary taste: Sabina is all of this, and not only this. It is a strong and vigorous land, always fertile soil for agriculture, initially dominated by the Sabines, a proud and pugnacious community that Romans managed to bend only through a trick – by the legendary expedient of the “Sabins Rape” – without ever really defeating them. Rather, the two communities mingled and Sabina became a thriving Region of the Roman Empire. After the downfall, Sabina has been for long occupied by barbarian populations, circumstance that led the inhabitants to gather in feuds and fortresses to defend themselves, such as the famous Abbey of Farfa and the Castle of Palombara Sabina. Subsequently, the Region was part of the Popal State and saw the rise of powerful Roman noble dynasties, as the Orsini until the life shifted increasingly from the medieval to the new settlement sprung up in the valley, starting from 1800, fostering the birth of excellent agricultural farms.
The territory is, as always, the main protagonist. Rich of olive groves, vineyards and oak trees, as Strabo described it in the 1st Century before Christ, it represents a real treasure chest of flavors: meet, cheese, mushrooms, honey, fruit. But, above all, one of the finest oils in the world.
