Frantoio Muraglia, operated for five generations by the Muraglia family, prioritizes preserving the biodiversity of the agricultural landscape of Apulia and protecting the olive trees which are so vital to their company. The oldest olive tree on their estate is estimated to be 450 years old and produced the olives for their very first pressing.
Following ancient tradition, the olives are harvested by hand and are crushed using a stone mill. All of Frantoio Muraglia’s extra virgin olive oils are monocultivar, meaning they are made from a single variety of olive, either Peranzana or Coratina olives, both native to the region.
Olive oil has been stored in ceramic vessels since ancient times and Muraglia continues the tradition by filling beautiful handmade ceramic jars with their award winning monocultivar extra virgin olive oil.
