Barth deRosa, the founder of Secolari®. Secolari is a retail chain of gourmet olive oil and vinegar that has four stores in Maryland and DC. Being in our mid-50s, we both knew that it was now or never. While I had stumbled upon an olive oil and vinegar store while walking the side streets of Scottsdale, Arizona the November before, I didn’t think much about it. Now, however, the beauty of the concept quickly unfolded. It embraced almost everything Mary and I are passionate about: art work, gourmet food products, bath and beauty products, antiques, and most of all the “Mediterranean life style.”
“Follow your passion. If you have a passion for something, no matter whether you’re older or younger, go for it.” – Barth deRosa .
