A two-for-one treat for olive lovers awaits in these organic pitted Peranzana olives from Bio Orto. An iconic variety in the Pugliese region of Foggia, Peranzana olives are traditionally enjoyed both for their oil and as a table olive. This jar combines the two, preserving firm Peranzana olives in their own extra virgin oil. The ripe medium-sized olives are harvested by hand and aged in barrels for just the right amount of time to make a deliciously satisfying snack.
Unlike some extra virgin oils, Peranzana olive oil is not aggressively spicy or bitter—instead, those notes are held in harmony with a welcoming, mild fruitiness. Bio Orto’s organic monovarietal Peranzana oil has won worldwide awards at olive oil tastings, including taking gold at the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition.
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.
