Do you want to live an extraordinary experience in Apulian style? We invite you to the extra virgin olive oil experience in an oil mill in Fasano.
We begin by walking among centenary olive trees, fruitful ogliarola cultivars from which the precious Apulian green oil is extracted. Harvesting olives from these monumental trees requires specific tools that you can experience up close during the period from October to November for an even more exciting experience.
You will discover a medieval underground oil mill where an expert guide in Italian or English will tell you about life in the countryside and the value and uses of oil over the centuries. You will learn to recognize a quality oil and the differences between extra virgin, virgin, olive oil.
Afterwards, you will visit the modern oil mill where the olives are pressed as soon as they are picked to preserve all the qualities.
The tour ends with a tasting of various oils to learn to recognize their organoleptic properties as a true sommelier.
You will receive a free small tank of oil and you will have time for shopping. Duration: 90 minutes.
