For Raineri, history is a value that is hidden in the surrounding rocks and landscape.
That’s why when the company decided to share its impressive past it was only natural to choose as its headquarters the ancient community oil mill, the oldest part of the facility, which, to this day, houses the company. The mill has been completely renovated: inside are the rooms in which the olives were once transformed into oil, outside is a small replica of the old iron wheel, the heart and muscle of the entire operation.
The first type of mill in existence in western Liguria, its wooden fruit press, iron presses, and wash house are just a few of the tools indicative of the years in which Ligurian oil conquered the most prestigious markets and was found in almost all of northern Europe’s royal courts.
All of this and much more is enclosed within the walls of the old mill, a testament to a glorious past which gives us the strength to view the present and the future with great optimism.
