Sunday night

It was about 6.00 o’clock when there was a gentle tap on the door.

It was an Italian couple searching for Casa Margherita. They had bought our oil the previous year and had just been in Trevi where they had tasted our olio nuovo. They agreed with the owner of the Enoteca that ours was the best in the area. He then mentioned there was a Festa in Manciano and that we were taking part.

They drove here to Manciano and, as it happens we attended Saturday, but had to return to picking on Sunday. Asking one of our neighbours where we lived they walked nearly a kilometre in the dark down to our house.

They wanted to buy 5 litres of our oil.

Can you imagine going to that effort to buy a food product. I am happy it is mine and that they like it so much.

  1. I would put in that effort for any food product of such a high standard as Casa Margherita.
