Apulia is our home. We were born and raised here, the red soil and the silver of the olive leaves are a part of us.
A treasure is kept on the land that we have walked since birth.
Age-old olive trees roll down from the hills as far as the sea. Their existence is witness to a long history that has seen people come to Apulia from far and wide, bringing a variety of cultures and traditions to the region.
This expanse of olives has become a symbol of Apulia and represents a complex system where history, nature and man’s knowledge have come together over the millennia.
The varieties of olives cultivated in Apulia are indigenous to the region and each have unique characteristics that adapt to the soil, the climate and the way in which they are cultivated.
The majority of the local cultivars belong to the Ogliarole family. Varieties include the Coratina, Peranzana, Nociara and Cima di Mola.
