Especially Puglia - A Journey Through Authentic Italian Flavors and Unforgettable Gift Experiences

Discover the story and inspiration behind Especially Puglia, and learn why it's the perfect gift for the culinary enthusiast in your life.

Picture this: the sun setting over rolling hills, olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see, and the scent of freshly pressed olive oil wafting through the air. This is Puglia, a region in the heart of southern Italy, where the finest olive oils are crafted and cherished culinary traditions are passed down through generations. It is this unique landscape and rich culture that inspired the creation of Especially Puglia – a company dedicated to connecting food lovers worldwide with the authentic flavors and experiences of this remarkable region.

Founded by Michele Iadarola, Especially Puglia brings the essence of Puglia right to your doorstep. Michele, born and raised in the region, has always been passionate about the traditions and flavors of his homeland. As the world became increasingly globalized, he realized that many people were losing touch with the origins of the food they consumed. Especially Puglia was born out of a desire to bridge this gap, offering customers an opportunity to experience the genuine taste of Puglia, while supporting local farmers and producers.

Through carefully curated gift boxes, adopt-an-olive-tree programs, and immersive culinary experiences, Especially Puglia invites you to embark on a journey through the flavors, stories, and people of southern Italy.
