History.

The production of olive oil in the Terra Bari PDO extra virgin olive oil area has ancient origins, presumably dating as far back as Neolithic times. The expansion in the cultivation of the olive though can be ascribed to the Romans, with their central organization for the commerce and export of olive oil. The importance of this trade was shown by the fact that it was the main source of wealth for many of the noble families of the Bari area who, in the 16th and 17th centuries, governed the trade with Naples, Ferrara and Venice, Venice being an important hub for trade to many other European countries.

Gastronomy.

Extra virgin olive oil is easily degradable and must be stored correctly to maintain its organoleptic qualities. It should therefore be kept in a cool, dark place at a temperature of between 14 e 18°C, away from sources of heat and away from other foods which produce odours. It should be used within four to six months of pressing to enjoy its flavour at its best. The Terra di Bari PDO extra virgin olive oil is an ideal condiment for vegetables, bruschetta and pinzimonio, while it enhances the flavour of cooked dishes. It is perfect with the fish dishes typical of Apulia.
