The “Antica Masseria Caroli” is located in Martina Franca, within the Province of Taranto, in the hills at an altitude of 420mt. It is one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial success in the rich Apulian vegetable oil world.
Stefano Caroli, owner of the company, was just 23 when in 1976 founded his company along with his family and his staff. Thanks to the experience of three generations and a careful selection of the best olives, Antica Masseria Caroli produces now a wide range of high quality extra virgin olive oils. Stefano selects the best olives, as well as the olive trees in "Monte Trazzonara" and "Pezze Mammarelle" and even olives from different farms and estates.
The Martina Franca farms are beautiful and impressive as much as the extraordinary historical center of the city. They are a maze of narrow streets plazas and squares, and are an important center of Baroque art, with exquisite palaces and ancient churches. Martina Franca is also the center of an agricultural and economic system where almost everything revolves around the work of the farms.
Respect for nature is Stefano Carol's main goal for organic and non-organic production. This choice pays in terms of olive oil quality and quantity that is affected by climate changes and insect attacks, which cannot be rejected with chemical pesticides, fertilizers or pesticides.

The many honors and awards, national and international, obtained by the “Caroli” extra virgin olive oil during the competitions are, as told by the same Stefano Caroli, "not only a source of growth and comfort, but also a business card to our stakeholders that have an immediate view of the company and its transparency."
Research, tradition and innovation are the three canons of Stefano Caroli, through which he can carry on his great aspiration of "making a high quality product by using the best of my abilities."
