We shall welcome you in a 1700 farm, Masseria Pezze d’Aglio, where our farmhouse is located, together with our oil mill and our sixty acres olive grove. Here we shall present you the territory, among ancient “lame” and imposing secular olive trees.

The picking of olives from the historical trees needs machines and specific tools that during the October – November period you could experience closely for an even more exciting experience. In this first step, we shall explain to you which are the olive tree varieties in Puglia, in Italy and all over the world.

We shall accompany you in the underground oil mill, among the ancient grinders dedicated to the oil production during the Middle Ages and the rock settlements and we shall explain the uses of oil and the marks left by men over the centuries.
Then the tour moves to the modern oil mill. Here there will be an explanation concerning the avantgarde equipment and the various production phases in order to obtain a superior quality oil. The differences among extra virgin, virgin, olive oil are striking.
The tour ends with a tasting of several oils in cobalt blue professional tasting glasses. We shall compare various oils regarding their purity and as a real sommelier, you will be able to distinguish the organoleptic characteristics of each one and learn how to define the properties of a quality extra virgin olive oil.
