“We love olive trees as our children, the same love people of Monferrato has for the vineyards.”
Few meters far from Cascina rosa b&b is located the Azienda Agricola Veglio : extra virgin olive oil producers in Monferrato since 1997. They started again cultivating olives on our hills, ancient tradition disappeared since long time.
Names of villages around Cascina rosa b&b like Olivola or Monte Oliveto in Ponzano Monferrato (near the Sanctuary of Crea) tell about a past where olives and oil were common and spread also in Piedmont, especially in Monferrato.
