One of the wealth of Salento are, without a doubt, the centuries-old olive trees that have made the patrimony of this land invaluable.
The goal of the experience is to introduce the origins of this richness and to savor the purest and most natural you could wish for: our extra virgin olive oil.
We will host you in our farm starting with a guided tour of the historic underground oil mill where we will tell the story and techniques of extra virgin olive oil production. Here we will discover the origins of the ancient oil mill, its dating, its spread in the Salento area and its past functions.
This will be followed by a visit to a modern oil mill to learn the new techniques of harvesting, milling and the related problems up close
The experience will end with the tasting of extra virgin olive oil where we will let you discover the aromas and flavors of Apulian oil, learning to recognize the different characteristics and combining typical tastes.
The history of our family belongs to these lands for four generations and we carry on the tradition of the territory with love and passion, certain that the return to the origins, in a purely agricultural country, can discover the essence of purity and genuineness.
