The story of
First and foremost we are a family, and we manage our farm expecting it to be in this family forever. Our love story with Tuscany goes back to the early 1990’s, when as a young man I discovered the Maremma region of Tuscany.
Candice, then a professional violinist, over 20 years ago co-founded the Academia Solti that is now internationally renowned, and the most significant part of the cultural life of Castiglione della Pescaia, the beautiful seaside village close to our farm. Having abandoned an intellectually empty life as a Banker in Switzerland we decided to return to Italy to pursue a more fulfilling and challenging existence. We settled between Venice and Maremma.
And what better intellectual challenge than olive trees? With our Oil representing the shared point of contact, we are developing a community of people who have interest in sustainable development and community values, people that endorse the replacement of socially and ecologically destructive system, and that do so with their actions, including personal consumption and nutritional habits.
