Our Puglia

Puglia is a magic land where if you treat nature with respect, it gives you back characteristic products.

Besides what we produce, it is our duty to celebrate the grandeur of these places, that are unique in their art, culture and history, and are filled with a fascinating and powerful nature.

Our company is deeply rooted in the Apulian territory. In fact, we are located on the upland of Murgia, whose name derives from the Latin murex (“pointy stone”) as the territory is full of calcareous rocks that gave life to numerous phenomena of hypogeous karst such as sinkholes, ravines, and caves. These are places where there is absence of permanent watercourses on the surface. Water is present, instead, in the underground and it offers one rich and deep aquifer and other numerous little ones that are more superficial and therefore are used to irrigate lands.

Alta Murgia National Park is another attraction in our area. It is the first rural park of Italy as it protects the natural ecosystem, and it safeguards and promotes territorial unity.

The right method to pass on ancient local traditions and preserve a sustainable and rational use of resources, is to look at all the 1500 different plant species that grow spontaneously in our territory (a quarter of the 6000 varieties present in Italy, a true reserve of biodiversity).

Our company was born in one of the biggest cities of Murge. Altamura, white and elegant, was called Lioness of Puglia by the Vatican due to its resistance against the Bourbon occupation. It was also loved by Frederick II that designed the still existing urban structure, made of claustri (little closed squares) and little streets that lead to the central Apulian Romanesque Cathedral.

The city is also famous for its bread. Tall and big (called in the local dialect “u scuanète”), it was mentioned in the Satire of Horace. It has also a deep social value because it was cooked in public ovens.
