Liguria is an astonishing Italian Region where mountains touch the sea, little fisherman villages keep their ancient beauty and olive trees grow in stone made terraces. Rosmarino Farm is an old house dominating the Tigullio Gulf right in front of the famous Portofino village.
Luisa and Gian Marco Petrelli, many years ago, discovered a charming but abandoned house made of stones and surrounded by secular plants of olive trees. They started renovating the house with love, preserving the ancient taste of Liguria.
Luisa, a Gourmet Lover and senior member of the Italian Academy of Cuisine, started in 1995 a limited production of high quality extra virgin olive oil for top cuisine and gourmets. The first customer was Hotel Cipriani in Venice. Since then other prestigious hotels and famous chefs decided to buy her oil.
Today, taking advantage of professional oil tasters, Rosmarino Farm integrates its production buying olives from other Ligurian Farms. Our extra virgin, with the brand "Costa dei Rosmarini", is bottled in Imperia in small quantities at a time and its superior quality is constantly controlled by Professional Tasters.
