In the surroundings of Andria, near Bari in Apulia, at an altitude of 250 metres a.s.l., lies the farm GIANCARLO CECI, run for the last eight generations with the greatest respect for nature and traditions. The Mediterranean climate, the location amidst a landscape of low hills, the presence of oak woods, the non-intensive cultures contribute to preserve the biodiversity and the precious balance of this ecosystem.
