There is a unique place in the heel of Italy, where olive oil is simply special. In this area, blessed by the sun and white sandy beaches of Salento, rich in beauty, traditions and culture, sits the olive oil mill of the Muraglia family. Precious, generous and unique.
For more than 80 years, the Muraglia family has produced extra virgin olive oil, with full respect of tradition. Using the classic method of cold pressing with granite grindstones and single cultivar olives from masterfully tended groves, these oils immediately stand out for excellence and balance of taste, for fragrance and harmonious flavor. In keeping with the ancient tradition of Puglia, they are bottled in beautiful handmade clay amphorae with colorful red or green glaze.
