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 of 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.

At the farm, it’s possible to buy our extra virgin olive oil and all the related products we will try together during the experience. We also ship everywhere in Europe.

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.

Es war eine tolle Erfahrung!!! Es ist ein toller Erlebnis durch so viele Olivenbäume zu laufen, Die Grillen zu lauschen und diese Geschichte see Familie zu hören. Es war total interessant. Das Olivenöl ist hervorragend und das Dinner zwischen den Bäumen war ganz besonders. Arianna und Marco waren so lieb und es war wie den Abend mir Freunden zu verbringen.

Fantastic experience in a breathtaking location in the heart of Puglia. Arianna and David, Max and Bruno are great hosts and will make time fly away with interesting stories about olive oil production. Also you will learn about olive oil degustation, what to focus on when tasting an olive oil and what makes a good one. The products of course are delicious! Super recommended

J'ai réservé cette expérience pour les 30 ans de ma compagne et à l'occasion de notre venue pour 15 jours dans les Pouilles. On ne pouvait rêver meilleure expérience d'arrivée ! Arianna est formidable, passionnée et attentionnée. En italien, en anglais ou en français, elle d'adapte à son public et ses explications sont très claires. Après une balade au milieu des oliviers, place à la dégustation et à l'aperitivo qui s'est transformé en véritable repas pour nous avec que des bons produits. Vous pouvez réserver les yeux fermés, nous sommes conquis ! Merci encore Arianna et bonne continuation 🙂

It really was an extraordinary experience and we had a great afternoon. Our kids (11 and 13) enjoyed the walk through the olive groves and the tasting immensely. Everything was outdoors and we felt really covid19 safe.

Highly recommended! Arianna is a great host with a lot of knowledge. We enjoyed the tour of the masseria and tasting very much and were able to buy olive oil from the shop afterwards.
