The farming estate “Baglio Ingardia” is situated near the slopes of Mount Erice, amid the fertile countryside in the province of Trapani.
The origins of the “Baglio” date back to the eighteenth century, when it was built by Baron Todaro della Galia, who planted a lush olive tree grove of about ten hectares within the property.
Once it became part of properties belonging to the Ingardia family, it was refurbished during the last century to host the numerous oil, beer and wine lovers. The estate was enlarged primarily thanks to the hard work done over the years, which has further consolidated the facility’s beauty, along with the product quality standard..
Nowadays, Baglio Ingardia has a cultivated surface of over 20 hectares and it is managed by the daughter Mariella and the nephews Nicola and Salvatore, who accurately follow the production and marketing stages of excellent products such as organic extra virgin olive oil, wine and craft beer.
The Ingardia family strongly believes in environmental sustainability as a value. Fitted with a modern irrigation system, the “Baglio” can rely on a basin with capacity of about 45,000 cubic metres: this ensures the necessary water availability in hot weather and drought, while making a contribution to the high quality of harvested fruit.
All the land is farmed with the use of organic fertilizers, carrying out the manuring of leguminous plants grown exclusively in the estate and that are essential to the improvement, fertilization and protection of the soil.
Baglio Ingardia has always been characterized by the pursue of quality coupled with respect for the environment and has therefore chosen to swap to organic farming. A choice determined by care and focus on details that, in the course of time, has granted several awards and acknowledgements that witness the daily work by a family boasting over a century of history and expertise.
