The Tastes of Puglia

The regions of Puglia and Basilicata are known in Italy for the lands of traditional cuisine that is so delicious that one must enjoy it to really live gastronomy in Italy. Then, add the undiscovered wines of the area and the Olive Oil thought of by many as the best in the world… well this is what makes our experience extremely unique and special.
