“Piemontese” oil. That's how everyone in the village has always called our oil.

Who We Are

___

Because grandpa, who studied as a doctor, moved in Turin after the war, and there started his family and career, to subsequently transfer both a little southward, in the granda.

Anyhow, we've always kept the house in the village, as well as the tiny patch of land going along with it.  But in the meantime we have become foreigners: “piemontese”, hence the name.

To take a close look at it, possibly, we could not even consider ourselves as such anymore: my brother and I have followed our ambitions way beyond the border of the maritime alps, living and working here and there, both inside and outside Italy.

With this background, however, and with the consciousness of the value of our roots, we decided to extend our small family production and to share it with all those willing to appreciate it.

 
 

The hardcore of the cru Madonna del Piano (from the same-named chapel, just a few fascie above) is made of a single cadastral parcel, which for some strange vicissitudes in the chain of title ended up tight among other properties, all olive groves.

THE CRU

___

The hardcore of the cru Madonna del Piano (from the same-named chapel, just a few fascie above) is made of a single cadastral parcel, which for some strange vicissitudes in the chain of title ended up tight among other properties, all olive groves.

Of these, however, only a few were farmed: most remained uncultivated, due to the gradual, but inexorable, depopulation of the valley.

Over the years, we have decided to extend our plot of land, win these old trees back from the   brambles and bring them back in production.

The cru counts today about 300 trees, all of taggiasca variety and overlooking the blue of the Ligurian Sea, with exposure to SOUTH EAST, at an altitude of about 500 meters. a.s.l..
