Gabriella Gabrielloni was born in Recanati in 1960. Since a young age both she and her sister Elisabetta were involved in the Frantoio started by their grand father Marino in the ‘50, grewing up between the olive trees and the scent of fresh olive oil. Soon after her studies, in the middle nineties she finally takes the lead of the family oil mill, the Frantoio Gabrielloni, while her sister Elisabetta takes care of the rural enterprise counting more than 2,000 olive trees.

Togheter they made innovative and bold choices: the goal was to utterly enhance the quality and value of their products, while preserving their traditions. The oil mill is now completely renewed and produces every year some of the most awarded and sought-after extravirgin olive oils of the Marche region, Italy and the World.
