Argentina is a huge country, rich in space, land and nature. When I was a child, television newscaster called it "the granary of the world" and showed images of a country which, during the Second World War, grew food enough for millions of people. Sixty years have passed and the dormant seed of that memory re-awakened in me when, in 2005, I arrived in Argentina, and more precisely, in Coronel Dorrego in the province of Buenos Aires. The fields, the grazing land and the clean air revived in me that desire for country life which I had already experienced as a child with my family in Italy. Like other local entrepreneurs, my wife and I once again took up an experimental project of the Fifties involving the planting of olive trees in the area; we transformed fifty hectares of our estate into an intensive olive grove with 20,000 plants and five different types of cultivars. Thanks to the virgin condition of this unexploited land, its geographic position between the ocean and the mountains, the extremely pure air and the total absence of the olive fly, which means no pesticides are needed, we now produce Olivares La Reconquista, a delicious, healthy and wholesome extra-virgin olive oil.
