We, the Castelluccia family, are an Italian family business, from Puglia more precisely the Gargano, the largest nature reserve in Italy, known for its fertile soils and organic farming. We produce organic pure olive oil in the 3rd generation. Since 2006 we offer this high-quality product also in Germany.
Production and care
Our olive trees and lands are cultivated on a biological basis and are not exposed to any pesticides. Our olives are gently shaken by the trees on the day of harvest without hurting them. The collected olives are then driven directly to the mill, where they are washed and replaced by a mechanical
cold pressed. The quality and taste of the olive oil depends heavily on the care of the olive grove, and the annual spring cut plays a major role. The timing and method of harvesting is another important indicator of the quality of our oil, usually we harvest between mid-October and the end of December. Our olive oil of the 1st quality class "olive oil extra native" is pressed in the mill on the day of harvest, otherwise the freshly harvested olives would quickly start to oxidize.
Service and quality
Benefit from our know-how. We know and love our olive oil and its origin. We would like to share this experience with you. We produce not only our olive oil and other treats ourselves, but also our online presence and the associated marketing such as flyers and other advertising materials. These are all measures to ensure the order, prices and subsequent satisfaction for you. The quality of the olive oil depends, among other things, on the acidity. Top oils of the highest quality may have a maximum acidity value of 0.8 percent. Otherwise, according to the EU regulation, olive oil would have to be labelled with 'virgin olive oil' >0.8% or only 'olive oil' < 2%. Oils with more than 2 percent are called lampant oil, this oil was used for lamps in the 19th century and is not suitable for consumption.
Price and performance
We know that we cannot keep up with any supermarket, but we don't want that! Because quality has a price. You benefit from the fact that we offer everything from a single source and can therefore do without expensive advertising campaigns and advertising materials. With us you pay exclusively for the olive oil, its production and transport. We do not have intermediaries! The price is derived from organic farming and harvesting as well as fair payment of harvesters.
Our goal is to bring a piece of our region and tradition to the customer. We run our business transparently according to the motto: "Know what's in it." In the future, we will also be planning trips to our beautiful region, the Gargano, for you, so that you can turn to the culture, the region, the natural beauty and the culinary experiences and leave the stressful everyday life behind.
