When we bought our Italian property we knew it had been in the Paradiso family for a very long time. During our trip to sign the purchase papers, we met some of the children that grew up in the house. Buying a long time family home is emotional and we knew that our new family memories would be built on the foundations of those that came before us. We viewed it as a positive! From our perspective, instead of one heart, now the house has two family hearts, beating in common for the love of the land, the trees and that breathtaking view!
Earlier this summer, we were contacted by Robert Paradiso who shared his happy news about getting married. He wanted to give out something special as a bomboniere (wedding favour) that would be high quality and also have emotional ties to the guests. Since our olive oil is from his family’s former land, what could have more impact than to give a taste of the past, a taste of memories and lots of love!
Awwww…it has made us so proud to bring all that together in a bottle. And judging by the number of emails that we have received after the wedding saying how much the oil meant to them, it has made us even more determined to make our olive oil brand a success!
The photographer did our oil proud too! At this point, we don’t have their contact info but as soon as Robert gets back from his honeymoon I will link the information to this post. The images are great and I would recommend their talents any time!
Once again, congratulations to Robert and Samantha! We think you are the picture of love!

I would like to know if it is possible to order some bottles of olive oil. Thank you. Lydia Schott.
We have never shipped the oil within continental Europe before, we are happy to look into the logistics for you! If you could give me a few days to do some research including shipping costs that would be great!
