Favolosa – IGP Puglia
The story of this oil is the most important part. FS 17, also known abroad as “Favolosa” is capable of resisting to the Xylella Fastidiosa bacterium which in the last 10 years has caused the loss of thousands of olive trees in Salento and now also in the Bari area. This extra virgin olive oil is obtained by the first olives picked by the new olive groves planted to fight this disease. It’s for us a symbol of hope for the future of the Apulian olive oil production.
Agro is a family-based agricultural company founded in the 1932 close to Lecce, in the South of Apulia. From just taking care of the 40 hectares of olive groves, in 2010 two young members of the family decided to expand the company with a modern oil mill. Every year tourists from all over the world visit the ancient and new olive groves, and discover all the stages of production, quality check and storage of our extra virgin olive oil.
