Galantino's hand-painted ceramics come in a variety of colors and patterns and are hand-painted by local artisans of the Puglia region of Italy, where the award-winning Frantoio Galantino olive mill is located. It is filled with their delicious authentic extra virgin olive oil. Golden yellow-green in color and well balanced flavors of almond and artichoke make this an ideal extra virgin olive oil for everyday use. Great for cooking and for dressing a salad! Discover the passion of the Galantino Family, a family that have been masters of olive oil since 1926. They only select the best olives from their groves near Bari (Apulia), near the Adriatic cost, a region that produces more olives than anywhere else in the world. Even today, in this era of automation, all of Galantino’s Ogliarola and Coratina olives are hand-harvested the traditional way, by shaking the branches of the olive trees so that the olives fall gently onto canvas traps. In another nod to tradition, Galantino mills their olives with traditional granite millstones. Through cold extraction and strict quality testing, Galantino ensures that their extra virgin olive oil is consistently the best. With artistic packaging and fresh and smooth qualities, Galantino oils have won the most important international awards and accolades.
