Company

The Company 1985

This was the year when everything changed. The company moved from the production and local sales to a global view and international openness. The grandfather Raffaele left his lands, the beloved olive trees to his sons Giacomo and Pasquale.

Our history started much time before, when 5 generations ago, the great-grandfather Giacomo decided to set aside almost 40 ha of fields between the seaside and the forest to plant the autoctonous cultivar Ogliarola Garganica. The passion of granfather Raffaele drove the family and its following generations. Because the intuition is important but the passion and the dedication are much more. This the same dedication that guides us every day producing a quality product 100% Garganico, as we love to say, and it’s the same passion for a difficult and wonderful land, that incites us.

Our olive oil mill is located into the Gargano National Park, surrounded by expanses of olive trees, rich of history. It is few steps by the sea and the forest. Infact the uncontaminated nature of our territory created a temperate microclimate, that nurtured the growth of olive trees and it has been the luck of our family and of our trees.

The olive oil is produced through the best extraction techniques with the best technologies available in the market, without leaving completely the tradition. Infact the modern oil machines are combined with strong sinergy to the ancient stone mills called “molazze”. In the past they were magical timeless instruments. Today we use the extraction method at 2 phases for the most of our products.The long history, passion and link to our land allowed us to get always high quality extra virgin olive oil.
