The Trainito family has its peasant origins in the Regalsciacca estate since 1720 and has always been dedicated to the cultivation of olives and durum wheat.

It is in that extensive estate of Regalsciacca that, at that time, the four brothers Trainito Francesco, Salvatore, Filippo and Gaetano in about 1720 settled for the cultivation of the olive tree and to make good oil from those centuries-old trees, which still attract connoisseurs.

The modern oil mill in Agrigento (more precisely located in the municipality of Cammarata) is today a flagship in the production of true Sicilian extra virgin olive oil.

Tenuta Regalsciacca has numerous and majestic olive trees that dominate the valley and the plains, lapped by the River Platani and Morello.

It has always been known in the area that the best oil was produced from the olives of that district. Over time, the Trainito family bought the Grotte Capelvenere estates in the 1950s, which gave rise to the company name and the oil brand.
