Why visit us
The cultural, architectural, historical and artistic features from Apulia will impress you and your emotions will be truly assaulted thanks to the intense flavours and smells of our Mediterranean food. The local cookery is based around organic, simple, genuine and wholesome food. The so called ‘cuisine of poverty’ where there are no rules but are absolutely overflowing in inspiration: fresh fish, wild vegetables, olive oil, breads, taralli, frise, fresh pasta, fresh cheeses, wine.
Everything must be experieced by visiting the local wine cooperatives (cantina), oil mills (frantoio), old farms (masseria), in order to taste the very best of the local produce. The cultivation of olives is one of Puglia’s most important activities. Indeed most of Italy’s mass consumed olive oil originates from here as for the delicious wines.
