Puglia

Map of Puglia

Puglia (Apulia) stretches down the heel of the boot, making it a land somewhat apart from the rest of Italy. This area is often overlooked by tourists although it is steeped in ancient history. Agriculture is the most important sector, and much olive oil is produced.

Puglia produces more olive oil than any other single region but most goes into the mass-produced oils rather than the estate bottled, high quality oils we prefer.

There are some noteworthy oils from this region, though, so don't discount Puglia. The dominant olives in Pugliese oils are Coratina, Provenzale, and Ogliarola. The oils in the region around Bari, a busy port city, are fruity and light. From the area of Bitonto, the oils are closer in character to the taste of fresh olives, with a slight almond taste. We’ve worked carefully to find small, artisan producers to provide our customers with the finest olive oils of the region.

We’ve found these to be dangerous in the office. We left a bag of these handmade taralli on the table, and only crumbs left behind. Each yields a gentle crunch and a just enough satisfying flavor. Somewhat like a pretzel or ring-shaped breadstick, but special!
