Olio Mimí, Modugno, Bari, Puglia, Italy.
Domenico Conserva, known to all as Mimì, was born and raised among the olives trees, the red soil and the fresh air. Mimì worked his whole life in transport, but he had a dream.
He loved olive trees, olives, the smell of freshly pressed oil.
He loved the colour of the oil and the intense favour of fresh oil on bread.
Mimì’s dream grew, but a terrible accident took him away from it before it could be achieved.
However, that dream did not go with him as his children, Donato and Michele, together with his wife, Giudetta, decided to pursue it.
The dream became reality, and so Mimì has become the name of a superior Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Mimì is the story of a dream and of a united family.
Apulia is our home. We were born and raised here, the red soil and the silver of the olive leaves are a part of us.
A treasure is kept on the land that we have walked since birth.
Age-old olive trees roll down from the hills as far as the sea. Their existence is witness to a long history that has seen people come to Apulia from far and wide, bringing a variety of cultures and traditions to the region.
This expanse of olives has become a symbol of Apulia and represents a complex system where history, nature and man’s knowledge have come together over the millennia.
The varieties of olives cultivated in Apulia are indigenous to the region and each have unique characteristics that adapt to the soil, the climate and the way in which they are cultivated.
The majority of the local cultivars belong to the Ogliarole family. Varieties include the Coratina, Peranzana, Nociara and Cima di Mola.
