Graceful and golden, this organic Ogliarola olive oil from Bio Orto is a love letter to Gargano, a highland sub-region of Puglia where it is made. Mild and fruity, with a velvety softness and just a touch of spicy and bitter notes held in perfect harmony, it’s a mellow stunner that will make a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal. This oil is made only using Ogliarola olives, a variety also known as Paesana that is a Pugliese favorite. It is a bit of a chameleon and expresses the terroir of each region where it is grown, developing vastly different flavors depending on its surroundings.
Bio Orto’s line of monovarietal olive oils is devoted to sharing the unique character of each of the olives they grow. From fresh and fruity to intense and green, these oils capture the essence of Puglia, in its oak forests, steep mountains, and rocky coastline.
Launched in 2003 by third-generation farmers from the Passalacqua family, Bio Orto is dedicated to capturing the freshest Italian produce and sharing it with the world. A leader in organic agriculture, they grow their produce in the valleys of Gargano National Park in Puglia, on the southeastern edge of the country. This pristine landscape is the perfect home for a company dedicated to celebrating agricultural diversity while working to be better stewards of the land for future generations. From their olive oils to fruit preserves, tomatoes, sauces, and more, every ingredient is hand-picked and packed in their state-
of-the-art facilities to ensure you get the best of what Italy has to offer.
