Wine and olive-oil tour in Italy (Apulia)

With our olive-oil and wine tour in Italy you will have the possibility to discover Apulian typical productions.

Puglia (Apulia) is richly dotted with olive groves and grapevines. Wandering around this beautiful region, as far as the eye can see, you will admire miles of land with young and ancient olive trees and infinite fields with different kind of grapes variety.

The exquisite extra virgin olive oil and the refined wines of Puglia are not only the result of favourable climate conditions, but also the reward of hard working people who love and care of their land.


The olive-oil and wine tour  will include a visit to a winery cellar and a modern olive-oil mill where you will be able to try olive oil freshly pressed from different cultivars of olives.
The expert guide will lead you in tasting different types of wines and extra virgin oil selection, accompanied by local friselle and tarallini.

Explanations are held by the wine and olive oil making experts about the techniques of wine and olive oil production.
The olives used to make the extra virgin olive oil are fresh and undamaged olives that, selected at the right stage of ripeness, are picked by hand directly from the branches of Puglia olive tree groves. Immediately after picking, olives are milled in millstones, cold pressed and crushed in slow motion. After the settling, olive oil has a slow ripening process at a constant and natural temperature and is stored in underground storage tanks.

The olive-oil mill can be visited all year-round and during the period from November to January visitors can witness the production of the extra virgin olive oil.

You can also buy olive-oil and wine bottles directly from the producers.

The tour can be combined with a cooking course or with the wine course. For more information contact the school.
