The metaphor of the drop of oil

The metaphor of the drop of oil

The workshop devoted to building the “nests” that won the Nidificare i Paduli (i.e. Nesting in the Paduli park) contest was a truly unforgettable experience. Enclosed is a gallery of the pictures taken during those days.


The vineyards in Copertino castle

The vineyards in Copertino castle

Countless Negroamaro grapevines line the terraces and bastions of the Angevin castle in Copertino. The authors of this little miracle are oenologist Pizzolante Leuzzi and the president of the local wine cooperative. Ancient documents indicate that in the past, the walls and trenches of the castle were used as roof gardens, and were the home of olive groves and vineyards.

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique.
