We are in Vieste, the famous “pearl of Gargano”, the promontory in the north east part of Apulia.
Our soils are situated in hilly areas, one called “Macerelle” (from the typical dry stone walls, called macère, which protect the cultivated land along the hill), where there are also beautiful very old trees, and the other one calleda “Coppitella” with younger plantation.
Our warehouse and sales point, on the contrary, is in via S. Eufemia, in the centre, near Marina Piccola, a villa overlooking the sea and whose landscape is the lighthouse and Punta San Francesco.
Informations about Vieste
Vieste has about 14,000 inhabitants, large fields of olive groves and 30 km of coastline, made of golden beaches and rocks, enriched by sea caves and “trabucchi”, typical fishing tools of Gargano.
Our country offers a clear sea and picturesque landscapes, but it is also a rich place in terms of historical and culinary offerings, a favorable territory for the development of agriculture and fisheries.
The Old Town preserves the Cathedral and the Castle of Frederick II of Swabia and is characterized by narrow streets and stairways with sea view which in the summer are full of tourists and little shops.
Thereabout you can visit in Foresta Umbra, where you can find many varieties of flora and fauna and you can visit the neighbouring towns of Peschici, Monte S. Angelo, San Giovanni Rotondo, Mattinata and the Tremiti Islands.
As for the local gastronomy, the extra virgin olive oil is undoubtedly the king of the table, and goes well with land and sea dishes, both as a raw flavouring and as a base for several cooked dishes. Among other typical products, we have caciocavallo cheese and goat-curd cheese. The main traditional dishes are: stuffed eggplant, orecchiette with turnip greens and other pasta recipes, fish soup, troccoli with seafood or with peasant sauce, sauce with the meat rolls, bread soup with wild vegetables and so many other delicacies that you should come and taste.
In each of these, and in many others, the use of Sciannamè oil really makes a difference.
