I'm a professional olive oil sommelier, a big fan of all food related, and love to share the knowledge of the local area. I'm also an organic olive oil producer and since 2014 I left my job as legal counsel to focus 110% of the time on organic production. Our family grows more than 6500 trees on 30 hectares and I take care of the whole process, from pruning, tending, harvesting, to the bottled oil we produce.

Great Experience, we highly recommend it! Andrea provided us with a lot of interesting information about olive oil and the procedures and industry behind it. He picked us up right at our level of knowledge and focused on our areas of interest. We did not expect to learn so much in just an hour. The tasting perfectly complemented the experience! Thank you!

We had a wonderful time with Andrea at his home. He gave us insight to the olive oil production. We discussed several topics beside olive oil and had a nice friendly conversation. The tasting was professional and we learnt a lot. I highly recommend visiting Andrea if you are into such programmes.

I really enjoyed getting to know the secrets of high quality olive oil. Andrea is a great host and easy to talk to. He is an expert with the ability to pass on his knowledge and passion about olive oil. He perfectly explained everything in detail and answered all my questions with great patience and made clear the most important clues to find out if an "extra vergine" oil is really worth the name. I highly recommend going there yourself! :-)

We loved every moment of our olive oil tasting experience with Andrea! It was in a beautiful setting, the information was incredibly interesting and Andrea is clearly not only very knowledgeable but also passionate. We will recommend this to any of our friends traveling in the region. We made sure to buy some bottles to take home with us-- don't forget this part, it's the most important!
