What you'll do

Learn about olive oil tasting in the charming setting of our olive grove. We meet at 4pm in Lecce and drive together to the family olive grove. When we arrive, we will have a walk with Max (our welcoming german shepherd) to discover the history and the hidden corners of our farm. During our walk we will come into contact with olive trees of 200 years old as well as 4 years old trees and learn all the characteristics of olive trees cultivation. From tree to the table, we will have a practical lesson under an ancient olive tree and learn the basics of olive oil tasting to discover the organoleptic qualities of 3 different olive oils, how to recognize defects and attributes. To end our experience, we will share a glass of wine (or fresh juice) with some typical dishes from Salento. You will enjoy an immersion into the shades of our land with simple and tasteful ingredients. The best is always to spend some time together at sunset with a breeze of the end of a hot day.

Your hosts

I'm an agricultural entrepreneur from Lecce with a special passion for extra virgin olive oil. My family has been producing olive oil since 1885 and now after four generation, I continue working with new agricultural knowledge but still the same enthusiasm and care. Since 2015, I manage the everyday activities in the olive grove and take care of the quality checks of the final product. I’m an olive oil enthusiast and love to explore the different characteristics of olive oils. My favorite season is autumn when it’s time for olive harvest; it’s just a joy to taste a fresh drop of olive oil.
