Following a period of decline, the olive groves of the French Riviera
have taken out a new lease on life. In 2001, the creation of the label
AOC (control of the origin and quality of the products), "Olives
of Nice" and "Olive Oil of Nice" helped encourage this
Motivated and passionate olive growers decided to bet their money on quality
and authenticity so that these little olives from Nice would find their
place again among the best of olive products.
Today, we learn to appreciate the different savours of olive oils as we
do of wine. We try to define the complexity of their taste and differentiate
the varieties and origins.
This documentary takes a look at the various stages of the olive growing
process throughout each season. It is by observing the work and the different
methods used by olive growers that we better understand the special relationship
which is established between man and this eternal tree.
