Francesco toured us around the groves, showed us how the olive trees were cared for and how the olives were harvested and then milled through four distinct periods of history; our family of four had an amazing time.

Our Regent Cruise offered a tour to this amazing olive oil producer's olive grove. Each tree (with its twisted trunk) was a work of art. The shapes were awesome. We could stand in several of the tree trunks and take a picture. We also had an olive oil tasting and tour of the way olive oil was extracted in Medieval... More

Fascinating ancient olive groves set out in pre-Roman and Roman times with a 2,000 year old olive tree and a venerable 3,000 year old olive tree - both still producing fruit. Beautiful fortified masseria (farmhouse) with a tour of the ancient underground olive press, followed by a tasting of three different types of olive oil, with the opportunity to purchase... More

Fascinating and historic olive grove with trees and presses over 2,000 years old. An excellent guide shows the trees, cellar processing area and explains the history.

A wonderful insight into the history and production of olive oil. UK household chefs have been here such as Locatelli and Gino D'Acampo. Great tasting of different olive oils. Wonderful guide

Michele showed us around the olive grove, explaining the history and importance of these trees in the region while Francesco conducted a wonderful olive oil tasting. We also got to visit an underground olive oil mill - incredible!

A fascinating combination of history, agriculture, and olive oil tasting, worth every bit of the 10 euro per person charge and hour-plus of your time. Francesco was our charming guide whose enthusiasm and love of the subject matter brought the tour to life. We saw 2,000 year-old olive trees as we walked through the groves; then we descended into the... More

My hotel recommended visiting this olive oil farm and I was not disappointed. I was provided with a personal guide - the very charming Francesco. Francesco took me around the groves and also to the underground mill that was hundreds of years old. There was also time to test some of the delicious varieties of olive oil and I came... More

I never write reviews but feel compelled after our visit to the Masseria Brancati today. We were ovewhemed with the hospitalty and friendliness of Corrado and Francesco! We simply turned up unannouced and Corrado (and the little lion cat :-) ) still took the time to show us around his amazing olive farm. It was really a fantastic hour where... More

We spent a morning visiting this Olive Grove we were greeted by Corrado who gave us a most informative introduction to his olive trees which was followed by a tour of the wonderful trees all so old and we had fun recognising the different shapes on the trunks of the trees. Corrado told us some of the most interesting details... More
