Situated south-east of Montefalco in Giano dell'Umbria, Azienda Agraria Moretti Omero is owned and run by Omero Moretti. The area is small but in ten years has grown from 30 farms to 62. The origins of the property go back to just after the first World War, when in 1925 Moretti's grandfather Domenico emigrated from Switzerland, using his savings to buy his first olive grove. Omero fell in love with farming after receiving his first tractor in 1972 and joined the family business, eventually bringing his wife Daniela and two daughters, Lucia and Giusy, into the fold. Today, the 32 ha estate has over 4500 olive trees and 38,000 vines (11 ha).
