Presenting Ourselves

 
Gianni and Graziella left the big city life in 1991, its ratified and conventional myths, abandoning their social position and careers, but also its never-ending degradation due to traffic, pollution and all the rest …

They completed the work they had already started, creating from nothing an organic firm with its own registered trade mark. Now they bottle and store their products themselves. They reclaim lands, renovate buildings, channels, protective fences and cultivations. They discover underground water with the help of a water diviner, a friend of theirs; they have created a perfect habitat for hundreds of olive trees, fruit trees pines, flowers and all drip – irrigated causing little environmental impact
 
They acquired their profound knowledge by experimenting and reading everything they could on the subject, and the continual improvement of quality achieved has placed the extravirgin organic olive oil of "The Sun estates" on a level of excellence and safety; in fact the products are sealed before they leave the store – house to be sent by directly to the client.

In their little paradise Gianni and Grazziella fondly receive all nature lovers who appreciate the open – air life, the blue sea and the clean free beaches. All guest are indiscriminately welcome, free without any obligation, fixed hours, social convention or the necessity to appear.
