The Story – Who We Are

The present small rural town of Santa Barbara - Fraction of Galatina (Lecce) - developed especially in the twentieth century around the homonymous Masseria of the sixteenth century.

In the medieval documents the place got the name of “Santa Barbara De Paludibus” because of a swamp now reclaimed which in the ancient times worked for the maceration and linen processing.

Near those agricultural lands was built in the sixteenth century a farm that after different owners was sold to the Baron Domenico Andriani.

The Andriani De Vito Family was the only owner of Santa Barbara till the abolition of the feudal system.

The Guido di Noha family of Galatina in 1919 bought by the Barons Andriani De Vito the agricultural property where today stands VILLA OASI which preserves parts of the 600’s building with rooms with star vaults, the outer yard and the crusher for the production of oil and wine.
