    My partner and I had the best time making mozzarella, burrata and stracciatella in a caseificio off the beaten track! Marco showed us around the property and guided us through the workshop and dedicated so much time to making sure we had a great experience!

    Pranzo in vigna: meraviglioso! Da rifare e consigliare senza ombra di dubbio. Vini e prodotti buonissimi, personale super cortese e gentile dalla prenotazione sino alla realizzazione dell'esperienza, ore di relax nella natura. Ho avuto la possibilità di godermi a pieno questa giornata in compagnia delle mie amiche. Grazie davvero di tutto.

  • What an amazing experience. Marco provides an amazing experience from breaking down the history of the farm, to interacting with the cheese maker and having the freshest burrata ever and helping you out when you struggle to make orecchiette. 100% would recommend this experience.

    We booked Marco for two nights, and the food and service were excellent, including a range of delicious local delicacies. Marco was very personable and quick to respond to any questions beforehand, highly recommended.

  • Beautiful cooking experience. We were warmly received by the hosts in a beautiful masseria. We cooked under the guidance of the mother and grandmother of the house and prepared different kinds of pasta. They were extremely kind and patient. We enjoyed our meals on a beautiful terrace with some lovely wine. Would strongly recommend the experience!

    Highly recommended to visit the mozzarella farm. Marco is a super nice guide and he shows you exactly how the cheeses are made. We also got a nice tour of the farm and finally we had a delicious lunch. It's definitely worth the money.

    Marcos tour was an absolute wonder filled with knowledge not only about the Burrata making process but historical about the region, The Masseria was beyond beautiful and even had a set of Truli's, the quality of the product we saw make and tasted was superb and as fresh as it can get. I would do it again just for the food tasting!
