BESTAGNO OLIVE GROVE
Located in Liguria, Bestagno is Nudo Adopt's own olive grove run by director Katharine and her son Toby. Set back from the sea in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Bestagno is a classic Ligurian grove with the trees growing on terraced land in a steep valley. The once abandoned grove which they are bringing back to life, surrounds the romantic ruin of Castello di Bestagno.
BESTAGNO EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Bestagno grows Taggiasca olives, the characteristic cultivar of Liguria, famous for its delicate flavour. Bestagno's award winning extra virgin olive oil received a gold star at the 2019 Great Taste Awards for a food which delivers fine flavours, "simply delicious".
ABOUT THE FARMER
Toby has always had a love for the outdoors and Italian foods, from a young age relishing pasta, pesto, lemons, olives and olive oil. As a young man with severe autism olive farming has greatly improved his life by being able to spend his time outdoors and in such a supportive community. His love of everything olives shines through in the grove and the olive oil they produce.
