Frantoio Intini was established in 1928 in Alberobello, in Murgia Barese. We offer a superior, quality oil and expertise in the olive oil market have gone from strength to strength. Experienced olive oil taster Pietro Intini has invested in research and looked at new market horizons to enrich the inherited knowledge with the most innovative studies. He has recently updated his establishment with the most modern equipment. Frantoio Intini has added two continuous production lines to the traditional pressed procedure; these allow oxygen-free oil production thanks to the making inert of nitrogen throughout the process.
The pressing procedure is absolutely innovative and it also allows extra virgin olive oil to be obtained from pitted-olive paste. This offers a more delicate sensory profile with low bitterness and spiciness.
The olive oil is stored in controlled temperature rooms, inside stainless steel vats. The entirely oxygen-free, delicate process is finally completed with a sophisticated bottling line. By placing a small quantity of inert gas into each bottle, the perfect preservation of the product is guaranteed. These factors, as well as a rigorous selection of the raw material, make Intini oil a natural, high-quality product, recognized in numerous positive acknowledgements and competitively placed amongst the best food and wine products.

After a few study and work experiences abroad, he decided to completely dedicate himself to the olive oil sector by managing the family business. Led by a forward-looking vision and innovative drive, he chose the most modern equipment for his company, which he added to his strong family tradition to further refine his art.
Thanks to a meticulous approach and a dedication to high quality, his products soon have drawn the attention of both Italian and foreign experts, and he has achieved numerous professional goals in the last few years.
