Passionate about botany, gastronomy and art, and captivated by the area, he decided to turn his dream into a real project by creating roots with people from the territory in this beautiful place that, in his eyes, collected like no other in the world all the values ​​of the Mediterranean spirit. From this love affair with the centuries-old olive trees that he found planted on the estate in the municipality of Palau Sator, Fontclara extra virgin olive oil was born, of the Arbequina and Argudell varieties. 

A tireless entrepreneur, he immediately began to market Fontclara Oil around the world.

Indeed, Fontclara Oil has already won numerous awards at international competitions and, what is more important, the support of a loyal public eager to feel the essence of the Empordà on their palates.
