Information on the tour
Oil mill tour and Extra Virgin olive oil tasting in Fasano, Puglia
Take part in an extraordinary experience with a tour and oil tasting in our oil mill!
Among the most enchanting oil mills in Puglia, the Savoia oil mill awaits you with an expert and dedicated guide, in Italian or English, to immerse you in the uses and beliefs of oil over the centuries. It is possible to choose a Private Tour: contact us to have more information.
We will welcome you in a farmhouse from the 1700s, Masseria Pezze d’Aglio, where our company is located, together with our oil mill and our sixty hectares olive grove. Here, we will show you the territory, among ancient “lame” and majestic centuries-old olive trees.
Harvesting olives from historic trees needs specific machines and tools that, during the October – November period, you could experience closely for an even more exciting experience. In this first step, we will explain to you what the olive tree varieties are in Puglia, in Italy and all over the world.
We will then accompany you to the underground oil mill, among the ancient grinders dedicated to the oil production in medieval times and the rock settlements, and we will explain the uses of oil and show you the marks left by men over the centuries.
Then the tour moves to the modern oil mill. Here, there will be an explanation about the cutting-edge equipment and the various production phases in order to obtain a superior quality oil, and the differences between extra virgin, virgin, olive oil and “lampante”.
The tour ends with a tasting of various oils in professional cobalt blue tasting glasses. We will compare different oils regarding their purity and, as a real sommelier, you will be able to distinguish the organoleptic properties of each one and learn how to define the characteristics of a high-quality extra virgin olive oil.
