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.

Andrea is a great host an has an incredible knowledge about olive oil. We came here knowing not much about olive oil and had an interesting hour learning about how olive oil is made, what are the differences in qualitys and had a great experience tasting the oils. The place ist really nice too. We would highly recommend the experience. If you ask, you can also purchase the oil Andrea produces, but you absolutely won't feel forced to buy something. We brought our baby and he was also very courteous about that.

Incredibly knowledgeable host and a stunning location! What more could you ask for? I left knowing more than I ever thought possible about olive oil and I would absolutely come back with friends and family for them to have the same experience. Grocery shopping for olive oil just got a lot more interesting.
