Le 4 Contrade: Who we are  

We are Emanuele, Sebastiano and Valeria. 

We all studied and worked abroad until our home land, Puglia, lured us back. In Andria, on the hillsides of Castel del Monte, a silver sea of olive trees was waiting for us. 

Long before us, our family started growing olive trees. Once harvested, olives used to be brought to the local mill or sold as they were.

We wanted to take control of the milling process to create an extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality. We wanted our olive oil to be good, totally organic and able to bring a touch of style to the table. 

We completed our first production and bottled our first année in 2017.

We took the name “Le 4 Contrade” from an old family project and used it for our new brand: we decided to move forward keeping in mind where we come from.

We have worked hard but still have a long way to go.

Our goals

With your support, we hope to raise funds to share Le 4 Contrade Extra Virgin Olive Oil with all of those who care for nature, style and quality in what they eat and how they live. 

Our short term goal is to collect the resources needed to support the growth of our project. Next year, there are a few big trade fairs coming up. Having the chance to be there would be important to effectively promote our product. On top of this, specific machinery is needed to improve the efficiency of our labeling process. 

Our medium term goal is to add other products from our land, such as wine and almonds, to Le 4 Contrade offer. 

Our long term dream is to bring back to life our ancient Masseria so to be, one day, able to host you all here in our beautiful Apulian countryside. 

By backing our project and tasting Le 4 Contrade Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you will bring us a step closer to fulfilling our dream!

Our production process

Sun, wind, temperature and terroir all have a big impact on the olives’ quality. To create Le 4 Contrade Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we choose only the best olives in our farm. 

We proudly use 100% Coratina olives, the most typical (and super healthy) variety in our area. 

We want our olive oil to be expression of a world in which nature is still respected and valued. The use of the most modern techniques of organic farming and production is key in making this happen.

After a careful selection of our best olives, we bring them to a local mill. Within only two hours from harvest, they are cold-pressed and unfiltered in order to keep all the flavors and aromas.  

By balancing nature, innovation and tradition, we are able to produce an olive oil with unique taste and intriguing personality

Le 4 Contrade Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Coratina's marvel

Fresh and fragrant to the smell with hints of artichokes and wild herbs. Its aftertaste of sweet almonds blends perfectly with the bitter and spicy flavor typical of Coratina variety. Round and persistent finish.

Which are Coratina’s benefits? 

Coratina olive oil is rich in antioxidants (they are called polyphenols). Scientifically speaking, a high polyphenols count can help prevent cardiovascular illnesses, lower blood sugar and hinder alterations caused by cell aging. 

Coratina has a long shelf life! 

Also thanks to its solid lipid structure, a bottle of Le 4 Contrade Extra Virgin Olive Oil, if treated properly, can maintain its fresh and lively flavor up to 18 months.
