What you'll do

Enjoy the extraordinary experience of our extra virgin olive oil tasting; we go along with you in a sensory journey to discover the "liquid gold" Whether raw or cooked, extra virgin olive oil will always improve the flavour of a dish in which it is used but that combining is an art and we will give you the best sources of information possible. After a brief introduction on this pillar of Italian gastronomy’s history and cultural legacy, we walk our guests through our production philosophy centred on the use of a low-impact oxidative system that respects the cultivar’s integrity and traceability.

The experience of olive oil tasting is unique and it allows to really touch regional food philosophy. Katia's uncle, Fulvio, has a really wide knowledge about olive oil but also is passionate about cooking, so I received a lot of useful information on which olive oil to which food. I think this experience is a must for every foodie.

You got to taste 3 different oils, which was a really interesting experience for me. Also, you will learn a lot about the process and about olives.

Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen und haben bei der Verkostung der Olivenöle sehr viel erfahren. Auf all unsere Nachfragen wurde sehr ausführlich eingegangen, es war insgesamt eine sehr schöne Stunde bei Katia und ihrem Onkel!

Nous avons été ravis de découvrir les huiles d'olive de Katia. C'est son oncle qui nous a fait la dégustation et comme il maîtrise bien le français nous avons vraiment pu apprécier à la fois les différents goûts des huiles et les explications qui allaient avec. Un bon moment et de bonnes huiles d'olive dans le coffre de la voiture pour notre retour en France
