Lionel Pottier of Paris, France

 




And the award of this months Owner's Photo Competition goes to Lionel Pottier of Paris, France.

We choose Lionel's photo not necessarily because he participated in our olive harvest, but he managed to capture the magic of our annual tradition.An arduous time of the year when family and friends gather and share stories of the past and gossip... but all in good fun. The "workers" are traditionally awarded with a Tuscan lunch consisting of thick slices of freshly baked bread,finocchiona, rigatino, wild boar sausage, and all types of pecorino cheeses and lots of red wine, served on an old blanket, around which everybody sits down and enjoys the clear blue skies and warm autumn sun.
Not to be confused by Claude Monet's picture "Luncheon on the Grass".
