Maraviglia sits on a bucolic hill in Monte San Savino, Tuscany. The story goes that Maraviglia was named by ancient pilgrims traveling from France to the Vatican. When they stopped and looked around, they marveled at the beauty and serene energy of the place and said: “Che’ Maraviglia!” What a marvelous place.
Maraviglia is the land where Francesco, the founder, grew up on, climbing the olive trees at age five and picking olives off the trees. After college and years living in big cities, he felt the need to go back to his roots and reconnect with the land that raised he.
Returning home, he witnessed first-hand the fragmented Tuscan Olive Oil industry, along with the slow extinction of an ancient craft. Something had to change, and so he decided to apply his business background to what he knew and make it better.
With Agricola Maraviglia, his mission is to cement a new and sustainable way of producing Tuscan Olive Oil, one that builds upon and honors past traditions. His hope is to share the lands of Maraviglia and the nourishing green gold it produces with the world––one bottle at a time!
