the oil mill
true expression of puglia
Di Molfetta Frantoiani is a courageous family history, starting in 1950 in the bold heart of Puglia. Three generations dedicated to the fascinating art of oil making, the true soul of this region.
We love our land: we cultivate the olives directly on our terrain, we pick them by hand and we work with them in the shortest time possible, so as to keep all of the organoleptic qualities intact.
All of this passion is captured in our oils, created with our olives and with full respect for tradition. A version that is intense and one that is delicate, to bring to life every small tone of our region.
The perfect summary of Puglia: vigorous, fruity and lightly spicy.
Forget the predominance of flavours and scents: Ogliarola gifts a magical and interesting equilibrium.
The true aromas of nature: first the taste of olives, but then enveloping herbal notes are released.

01 HOW CAN I MAKE A PURCHASE?
Nothing could be simpler. Register on our website and receive your user code. Insert this code on your first purchase and together with the cans you have ordered, we will also send you free of charge our illustrated bottle and its funnel.
02 “D” AND “i”: WHY ONLY TWO CANNED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS?
For two simple reasons.
- One is certainly the difficulty of choice found in supermarkets: our extra virgin olive oil, whether you choose the more delicate or the more intense version, is perfect for everyday use, it is created with only olives from Puglia and is cold pressed in our oil mill.
- The second is the respect for the environment. Upon your first order together with the can we also send you a designer bottle and its funnel. In this way you can refill the same bottle and avoid buying a new one every time.
03 IS YOUR EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL REALLY 100% ITALIAN?
Of course! We cultivate the olives on our terrain and we press them directly in the company.
04 WHAT DOES THE TERM “CULTIVAR” MEAN?
In simple words, it means the variety of plant (or in this case of olive) cultivated. We use the Coratina, Peranzana and Ogliarola cultivars.
05 HOW DO YOU WORK THE OLIVES?
As soon as they are picked we take them immediately to our nearby oil mill where, once cleaned, they are cold pressed within 24 hours. The extra virgin olive oil is packaged immediately.
06 HOW SHOULD I STORE OIL CORRECTLY?
Obviously in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and from sources of heat. The container is very important: the less light that can enter the better, so as to not change the flavours, aromas and the organoleptic properties (our can and our bottle are perfect).
07 IS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL REALLY GOOD FOR THE HEALTH?
Absolutely yes! It is one of the most precious ingredients for the Mediterranean diet: it is rich in polyphenols (strong antioxidants), vitamins and mineral salts.
08 WHICH OF YOUR OILS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
It’s completely subjective. If you prefer intense and vigorous flavours, “i” is the oil for you. If on the other hand you love more delicate and elegant scents, you should definitely try “D”.
