Our Fruit

We produce and distribute on a wholesale basis, throughout Italy, our pears, peaches, apricots, plums and lemons. We are proud to tell you that, since very ancient times, our farm winery has stood out for its integrated and sustainable agriculture. We are located within the “Garden of Eden” of the Ionian Coast of Metaponto: this means that our fruit groves have good precocity and a wide range of flavours.

 

Our Oil

Our olives come from these cultivars: Coratina, Leccino, Frantoio, Cima di Melfi and Ogliarola del Bradano, all coming from on-farm production.

Our Crusco peppers

These peppers  – which are first sun-dried and then preserved – are produced according to a very ancient tradition. Francesco’s wife, Giusy, has brought this tradition from Senise, a little town in Basilicata. Good care and time are needed to prepare these peppers: first, they are placed on a “serte” (the traditional rope used to sun-dry the peppers); then, the peppers are cleaned and packed, and nothing is wasted. Crusco peppers are used to prepare many recipes, but the best way to taste the unique flavour of Basilicata’s cuisine is by eating them fried and crunchy.
