High Apulian Murgia

A mysterious place, rich in culture, ancient traditions and good food

Lands of stone

Our olive trees are located at the foot of the Alta Murgia National Park, between 150 and 300 meters above sea level and the temperate climate makes their cultivation perfect.

In this wonderfully rich land, each olive tree has its roots in a calcareous soil consisting of the typical tuff, a rock of magmatic origin that gives the oils produced intoxicating aromas and superfine flavor.


A thousand-year history

That of our territory, precisely Canosa di Puglia, is a thousand-year-old history full of charm and ancient customs.

It contains ancient traces of prehistory, the underground treasures of the Dauni hypogea, fragments of the world of Magna Graecia and testimonies of the power of Rome. In fact, the Romans were grateful with it, renaming it as the little Rome.

Inside this ancient city it is possible to visit numerous archaeological sites including the hypogea and the authentic ceramics that reinterpret the Hellenistic culture.

National archeologic museum

Built in last decade from the 19th century, Palazzo Sinesi has 8 exhibition rooms and various rooms. The collection is made up of artifacts from archaic tombs and rich Hellenistic hypogea and a large number of Apulian red-figure pottery and other prestigious goods such as weapons and metals.

Hypogeum of Cerberus

It was discovered in 1972, during the construction of a school complex. Dug out of the clayey bank, the hypogeum of Cerberus has a downward corridor from which four sepulchral chambers branch off. On the entrance of one of the rooms, there is a fresco with different figures, among which the mythological three-headed dog from which the archaeological site takes its name appears.

Underground Canosa

A fascinating and evocative walk inside the majestic subsoil of Canosa di Puglia. Real quarries dug into the tuff, formerly used as barriques for the conservation of wines.

Local cuisine

The Canosa gastronomic tradition is strongly linked to ancient peasant traditions and Mediterranean culture. One of the most characteristic products is the burnt wheat flour, exactly " gréne iarse " in the Canosa dialect, a flour of humble origins with a characteristic dark color as it is obtained from the wheat recovered after the burning of the stubble. Once this work was carried out by those who, unable to obtain normal flour, mixed the two flours in equal parts, obtaining what today we call a gastronomic discovery of high quality. One of the most authentic dishes of our territory are precisely the strascinati of burnt wheat or " strascenéte d gréne iarse".

The cuisine of our territory is renowned all over the world for its genuineness, rich in intense aromas and flavors that reflect the Mediterranean diet. There are many traditional dishes linked to products grown in the fertile lands of our countryside. Exceptional flavors cultivated with dedication, care and beauty.

Furthermore, the extra virgin olive oil produced from native cultivars is the emblem of our cuisine and our territory.

The selection of our oils

Strascinati with turnip greens

Top dish of our traditional cuisine.

Strascinati rigorously homemade with turnip tops, cetara anchovies, chilli pepper, breadcrumbs and a drizzle of Coratina monocultivar extra virgin olive oil.

Brasciole with sauce

One of the most popular Sunday dishes.

These are veal rolls with a filling of parsley, garlic and pecorino. They are then cooked, very slowly, in the tomato sauce which will thus become a sort of thick and tasty ragù.

Mashed broad beans with wild chicory

A must of our culinary tradition. A timeless dish that is handed down from generation to generation, to keep the flavors of the past alive.

A broad bean purée is prepared and wild chicory is placed on it, first blanched and then sautéed, a crouton and a drizzle of Peranzana monocultivar extra virgin olive oil.
