Due to current Covid related travel restrictions in Italy, our popular “Meet the Maker” days are currently suspended. We will (we hope), be scheduling more for late spring 2021.
Here’s what you can expect from your day with us:
Your day begins with a guided tour of our olive grove: its history, organic farming methods that we use, and lots of information about how we look after our trees at every time of year.
Depending on the time of year, you’ll see “work in progress”. Spring, for example, is pruning season. Visit us in March or April to find out the when, why and how we prune our trees – maybe you’d like to have a go yourself!
After all that fresh air, you’ll be ready for lunch! We love to showcase our delicious Sabina produce, so we’ll start with a selection of of local antipasti, followed by a homemade pasta dish (vegetarian / vegan options available), washed down with delicious wine from our region.
After lunch, we’ll teach you about Extra Virgin Olive Oil: what it is, how it is made, how it should taste, and how to select it in the shops. We’ll also teach you how to recognise quality oil from fake oil, and then we’ll lead you through a tasting session. You’ll have a chance to taste a selection of oils, including our own!
