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: depending on the harvest year, between 40% and 50% of italian national production comes from Apulia. 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.

Extra virgin olive olive oil from Apulia of excellent quality

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: The Peranzana 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 .

Four olive-growing areas in Apulia received the coveted status of a Denominazione di Origine Protetta (DOP) from the EU, in English: Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), recognizable by the red and yellow D.O.P. seal. It means that all production steps from cultivation and processing to manufacture and packaging take place in a certain geographical area according to a recognized, established process.

From north to south these are:

  • Dauno
  • Terra di Bari
  • Colline di Brindisi
  • Terra D'Otranto

Best olive oil producers from Apulia: Our test winners

With Frantoio Galantino and Muraglia, two top olive oil producers from the Bari region are represented in our range, while Intini as highlight represents the well-known Alberobello.

Galantino

Frantoio Galantino from Bisceglie, near Andria, has so far been able to primarily with his Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP Terra di Bari convince. With its intensely fruity, bitter to pungent notes and an aftertaste of artichoke and thistle, this versatile olive oil is typical of the area of ​​Castel del Monte north of Bari. The oil, which is mainly produced from Coratina with a small portion of Ogliarola olives, has already received several awards, including the coveted L'Oro d'Italia.

Muraglia

Muraglia, on the other hand, is best known for the original, high-quality ceramic bottles in which the manufacturer from Andria fills some of its mostly pure extra-virgin oils from the Coratina and Perenzana varieties. These unusual containers are a reference to the centuries-old local tradition of ceramic production. But their contents are also convincing: the tastefully balanced olive oils from Muraglia have found and have ample recognition - among other things by the respected Association of Italian Sommeliers AIS, which has received its highest award "5 Drops" for products from this producer.

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

Monterisi , a top producer based in Andria, continues with its single-varietal Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fruttato Verde Cru new standards.

The 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  Rather, 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 or 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, they are healthy for you, good for the environment.
