The “La Morgia” organic extra virgin olive oil is born on the hills of Pietrelcina, between Benevento and the place where San Pio was born and lived.
A simple and humble place, just like Padre Pio was, where the hills are cultivated mainly with olive and wheat trees which seem to be intertwined together almost to form a unicum interrupted only by the presence of old farmhouses. Tenuta Fontana, which gives its name to the farm, is located in the place where Via Paduli crosses the road coming from the Contrada San Nicola.
Nearby you can see Pietrelcina. Today on these hills and in their streets and districts, where one time San Pio traveled, there is a mystical air.
Here is where our ancient olive trees grow.
