Bringing you the flavors of Puglia through imported foods and olive oil, & exclusive getaways.

Puglia is a magical place. As the "heel" of Italy's boot,  a peninsula within a peninsula, it is a place where travelers must choose to go. Off the beaten path, trains traversing Italy North to South end their journey here, even the last cobblestones of the ancient Roman Via Appia are laid here.

Thick olive groves, rocky soils, and sea waters on three sides have created a land of unique culture, language, and history. Puglia harbors Italy's best olive oil, ancient vineyards, and some of the best culinary traditions Italy has to offer.  Italians are well acquainted with this "secret", but outside travelers rarely journey to this southern corner of Italy.

We are two sisters with family roots in Puglia. Our mother was born here and so was her mother and her mother. Our family's roots in Puglia are as deep as those of the centuries old olive trees. We have come to appreciate the many gifts Puglia has to offer - from food and wine to its ancient customs. Our mission is to share these with you, to bring you into the fold of Pugliese hospitality so that you too may experience the treasures of this ancient land.

Holy Tomatoes!

Le Sorelle

Most of you have heard of sun-dried tomatoes before, but have you ever heard of semi-sundried tomatoes? Aptly named after Calliope, the Greek goddess of eloquence and epic poetry, Terra Rubra Semi-Sundried Tomatoes aren't fully dehydrated like the ones you find in most stores. These are only half way dried, meaning that the fruits still retain their sweet succulent juiciness. Preserved in 100% extra virgin olive oil (unlike most sun-dried tomatoes which are preserved in disposable seed oils), Terra Rubra's Semi-Sundried Tomatoes are summer in a jar! 

You will NOT find these anywhere else! These are a Le Sorelle exclusive straight from Puglia and they are flying off the shelf. And for good reason too - they are deliziosi!! AND incredibly versatile. You can put them on pasta for an instant topping, pile them up on bruschetta bread, serve them with cheese, or plop them on top of hummus, fish, chicken, omelettes, you get the picture. YUM! And just like all our Terra Rubra products, every last drop of the oil in the jar is precious extra virgin goodness! Use it to add a pop of flavor to your favorite dish.

We recommend getting your hands on one (or two, or three) of these jars before they're gone. Click here to shop!
