It is true that this extraordinary olive, one of the olive oil cultivars par excellence, although so tasty and distinctive on the table and as an ingredient in the kitchen that it has shaped the cuisine of its territory, is derived from other varieties common in many regions, but has found in Liguria, and especially within the territory of the western riviera, a micro-climate and soils that have given it a unique personality.
Before the roman legions conquered the west liguria, the riviera tribes venerated a native god called bormanus. Adored and feared god of the waters, bormanus, according to the legend, lived in a thick and wild forest, maybe a mysterious sacred wood consecrated to him (lucus). Bormanus would derive from a divinity of the springs and this name makes us suppose that hot thermal waters gushed out in this zone.
Take a kind winter and a dry and sunny summer, mix with an autumn and a sufficiently rainy spring, add a handful of passion, adjust with dedication and character without forgetting to flavour with a hint of creativity. Highlight with a fresh and light breeze of innovation. Terre Bormane moves the elements in a perfect direction: this great nectar takes shape with its natural discretion, its rare balance and its noble simplicity.
