Our Producer:Luciano Visintin

Istria is located in the bay of Venice, a Balkan fragment in the Mediterranean. The Istriot groves are among the most northern in the olive-growing field. It is here that Luciano Visintin lives out his dream as an olive grower, harvesting every year at the very beginning of October. He has discovered that olives picked early, when they are still green, yield a more flavorful juice. For their part, his neighbors have always harvested their olives in December and, frankly, have thought his ideas to be ridiculous. But since Luciano is the one who is collecting the medals for his oil, his neighbors have had to change that opinion!
