Our Story

Ciao, we are the De Marco Family. We are olive oil producers since 1885, but most of all we are extra virgin olive oil lovers.

In the beautiful landscape of Puglia, our great grand father Vincenzo planted the first olive tree in 1885. At that time, the women living and working on our land, used to wake up and sing to the olive trees at sunrise. Thanks to their energy, our olives have been cultivated and harvested in a joyful environment that we have worked hard to maintain for four generations. Nowadays, the harvest has been mechanized but it still starts very early in the morning, with the rising sun. With our method, we make sure the olives never touch the ground, and are happily taken to the mill to become olive oil immediately, within 5 hours of collection. If you want to know more about us and our family's passion for olive oil, you'll definitely want to come visit us.

 

AWARD WINNING EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.

 

 

At Cantasole we select our top evoos to bottle an excellent product. Thanks to this determination, in the last years we won several awards such as: NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, Slow Food and Gambero Rosso. This is the result of bravery, skill and obsessive attention to details. Every stage of the process, from harvest to bottle, reflects
our goal to produce one of the world’s best olive oil. 

 

 

OUR MILL IS JUST LIKE OUR OLIVES. GREEN.

Our mill it’s environmentally friendly thanks to the first innovative 100% no waste system.
Here, the waste created during the olive pressing process is reused as a fuel to run the mill. Therefore, this is a circular production which reuses all the resources that an olive has to offer. It’s a real revolution for olive oil production worldwide and we’re proud to be among the pioneers.


 

EXTRA VIRGIN AND EXTRA HEALTHY.

Our extra virgin olive oil holds
three claims of health and quality.
We've always known that our evoo was extra good for the palate; now we also know that Cantasole is extra good for the whole body too.

In other words, it’s SUPER healthy. It is highly recommended for a healthy and natural lifestyle. We’re very proud of these results, which confirm once again that hard work and true passion lead to high quality products.
