Behind this lean and graceful figure lies a well-tempered personality! Dominique Raineri has several strings to his bow: craftsman-mason by profession, merchant, and olive grower. It is to this last activity that he has devoted most of his time since 2003. It all started with the complete renovation of the family olive grove. “These 35 trees belonged to my great-grandmother, but remained uncultivated for too long. The work needed to rehabilitate these 3 hectares was colossal.” It was in fact necessary to create new access-ways, clear, and plant new trees, which are now 5 years old. And all this alone!
“It was a dream that I wanted to come true! As a child I imagined building my house in the middle of this property and giving new life to the olive trees and fruit trees.” Mission accomplished! The house has been there for 10 years, but it also welcomes visitors eager for calm and serenity, and serves as a way for Dominique to maintain the property.
In 2012, a shop also opened at the entrance to the olive grove. “At first, I wanted to sell fruits and vegetables, but then I thought, ‘why not my oil?’ Simple!” A wise choice allowing him to see his produce travel all over the world. A great reward for this seasoned enthusiast!
