Extra virgin olive oil from Apulia of excellent quality

The evo oil from Puglia has a range of colours from deep golden yellow to dark green. The colour is originally more intense, and with time tends to lighten. The taste is fruity, soft and enveloping. Apulian oil with an intense fruity taste causes a slight tingling in the palate, has a pleasantly bitter aftertaste and some spicy notes.

Olives are grown all over Apulia: from the Daunian Appenin in the north of the elongated region over the vast plains of the Tavoliere and the Terra di Bari in central Apulia to the Salento peninsula deep in the south.

The range of the native olive varieties is correspondingly diverse; many of them are only distributed in a more or less narrowly limited area.

Peranzana olives can be found mainly in the province of Foggia in the north and the Ogliarola in the area around Bari in central Apulia. The main growing area of the Coratina, which originally comes from Calabria, is the Salento peninsula in the south. Another important olive variety is the Saracena.

Puglia is the home of the largest olive oil production in Italy

Olive tree Apulia Italy

In no other region of Italy is produced more olive oil than in Apulia (Puglia): depending on the olive harvest year, between 40% and 50% of italian Olive Oil national production comes from the Puglia Region. However, quantity and quality do not have to be a contradiction in terms; this is proven by the total of four producing regions for extra virgin olive oils with protected designation of origin in Apulia: Dauno, Colline di Brindisi, Terra d'Otranto and Terra di Bari. They all have the coveted DOP seal.

For several years, olive trees in Apulia have suffered the uncontrolled attack of a bacterium known as Xylella fastidiosa, which has caused multiple damage to these plantations. According to an EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) estimate, between 2012 and 2017, over 6.5 million infected trees were destroyed in Puglia alone. Another 100,000 olive oil trees are removed each year to combat the spread of this disease.

Organic olive oil from Puglia

Organically grown fruit, cereals, vegetables and the products produced from them are enjoying increasing popularity with consumers.

This also applies to olives and olive oil. So it's no wonder that a growing number of producers are opting for organic farming: this is also the case in Apulia.

In our online shop you can buy organic olive oils and organic olives from leading producers who have completely or partially converted their operations to organic farming. From Muraglia, on his Extra Virgin Olive Oil Essenza Bio referenced here, and from

The Puglian olive oil producer Intini from Alberobello was able to score points in four important competitions with its Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

These organic olive oils can be recognized by the Bio-EU-Siegel, a stylized green leaf with the central rib and the white edge marked by stars. All products produced in the EU and tested by it from controlled organic cultivation, bear this seal. But what exactly is behind this?

In the case of plant-based products, it means above all a complete avoidance of mineral artificial fertilizers. Only mulch, liquid manure or green manure are allowed to fertilize the fields. That saves the floors instead of leaching them out.

Furthermore, the ban on artificial fertilizers means that fewer nitrates are discharged into the ground and surface water.

Also in organic farming there is no place for chemical pesticides: weed destruction and pest control must also be carried out in a natural way, for example by releasing certain insects that destroy the plant pests. Also genetic engineering is left out.

However, the guidelines of the EU regulation are not limited to the cultivation of the plants; special requirements also apply to processing:

  • no artificial colors
  • no flavor enhancers

may be used

If a company manufactures the same product from both conventionally and organically grown fruits, further processing must be carried out completely separately.

All these measures not only protect the environment and nature, organically produced foods also contain considerably fewer pollutants and chemical residues than conventionally produced foods.

In short, organic evo oil is healthy for you and good for the environment.
