The Antica Enotria farm was born from the dream of Raffaele and his wife Antonia to grow vegetables and vines in a fertile land, sowing the idea of bringing to the table a product with a true and authentic taste. Leaving Basilicata in 1985, they decided to invest all their wishes in the purchase of the Masseria Contessa Staffa and in the surrounding lands. In 2002 the first production of artisan preserves was created following the typical recipes of Puglia and following the philosophy of zero km.
Antica Enotria makes preserves in oil, pickled olives, tomato sauce and ready-made sauces following the typical Apulian recipes handed down from generation to generation, giving the palate intense moments of lost tastes. All the raw materials used come exclusively from the fields owned by the family and cultivated according to the organic farming method. Each product is processed following the natural seasonality of the fruit. The proximity of the fields to the farm and the few production steps allow the creation of zero kilometer products. This allows to preserve not only a true and authentic taste over time but also the crunchiness of vegetables as well as the sweetness of tomatoes.
Tomatoes, “Bella di Cerignola” olives and vegetables such as aubergines and artichokes are harvested once they have reached the right degree of ripeness. Taken in a masseria, they are preserved by skilled hands in glass jars over a few hours. Thanks to the presence of olive groves, patè, sott’oli and ready sauces are created with Coratina produced extra virgin olive oil produced by Antica Enotria. An extra virgin olive oil with an unmistakable taste of a pleasant green tomato and a spicy aftertaste.
