Our land – truly delicious!WE LOVE OLIVES
Taste the force of an unforgettable landscape in our organic extra virgin olive oil.
Our olive groves are a gem set in a beautiful place: our organic extra virgin olive oil truly contains all the wonder of the sound of the salt waves and of the wind in Alta Murgia, the splendour of our architecture and the mystery of narrow streets hidden between dry stone walls. Our olive oil is as unexpected as the glimpses you see when you turn a corner, following the smell of freshly baked bread, and a world of ancient gestures and genuine smiles unfolds.
“Torre Rivera” was originally a vast estate belonging to the noble Rivera family from L’Aquila, great landowners in the territory of Andria. You may wonder what the area
is like where we grow our 17,000 olive trees.
The best answer we can give you is to come and see it and, of course, come and visit us, because we live in a beautiful place, known as ‘Imperial Puglia’.
It is a place between the sea and the sky. There is Trani, with its charming tangle of paved narrow streets overlooking unforgettable views of the Adriatic Sea. There is the enigmatic mystery of Castel del Monte, the Mediterranean maquis of Alta Murgia, the maze of narrow streets and airy piazzas of Andria, and the elegance of Canosa, the ‘little Rome’ of Puglia.
Of course, for those who love extra virgin olive oil and genuine flavours, our area is a true paradise of taste. In local recipes you will find a proudly Mediterranean personality, created by combining the best fruits of the territory: cereals and vegetables from the fertile countryside, extra virgin olive oil, fresh fish from the seas, and the full taste of cheeses.
Doesn’t your mouth water at the idea of our acquasale soup, our orecchiette pasta with turnip greens, puccia ripiena filled rolls, the sweetness of our fried cartellate fritters, the exquisite simplicity of burrata from Andria or the inviting spiciness of caciocavallo cheese?
All the dishes of our local cuisine are simple, fragrantly genuine, perfect to be enjoyed with a precious drizzle of our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, revealing a world of flavour to make you fall in love.
