It was a wonderful experience. Visiting a masseria with an underground olive milk was a bucket list item when we wanted to explore puglia. We got a guided tour of the olive farm, a warm introduction to the various kinds of olives, a visit and working of an ancient oil mill and a modern workings and window into the production of extra virgin olive oil. We were amazed and how detailed the tour was and we learned a lot. The highlight of the tour was the olive oil tasting. We got to experience newly extracted olive oil before and after filtering. It was one to remember. We highly recommend taking the tour even if it is not olive oil season. Giorgio and his family will not fail to impress.
