We just visited the Masseria Brancati in Ostunia, Italy. A marvelous tour of the estate and 3000 year old olive trees! A visit below ground is literally a well kept museum of Roman olive oil production. Corrado, a third generation farmer/producer was a most gracious host and obviously is passionate about his product and the results speak for themselves. One... More

Loved this! Corado who owns this Masseria (working farmhouse of which there are a plethora across Puglia) and Angelo gave us a brilliant tour of their beautiful grounds. This is the same spot that Gino d'Acampo chose across the whole of Puglia to learn about how olive oil is made for his programme - Gino's Italian Escape. For 10 euros... More

What an amazing find. This Masseria - like a Hacienda - is a beautiful and historic place. We got a tour of the olive groves where some of the trees are carbon dated back 3000 years. We found out the most interesting thing too: some of the trees (800 of them), as well as other old trees around the world,... More

My wife and friend and I called about noon to ask about a tour that afternoon. They graciously agreed and even had someone who could spoke English. We learned about olive trees that were planted before the Romans controlled Italy and were able to touch trees over 2,000 years old. The tour then showed us the process of how the... More

We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor, and agree totally with the excellent reviews. The passionate cultivation of these ancient olive trees, which are registered as national monuments, is awe-inspiring. The pre-Roman era mills and presses, along with their own museum of household and agricultural artifacts further amazed us. It made we wish I had stayed in their accommodation,... More

We had such an amazing experience with Corrado who gave us a fantastic tour and history lesson of the farm which has such an unbelievably rich legacy - starting first with the olive tress themselves, some of which are over 2000 years old and some of the oldest in the region. Corrado is so passionate about the farm and its... More

The tour of the Masseria Brancati outside Ostuni was unbelievably interesting. To see a farm of 2000+ year old trees was amazing in itself, but the tour also included the underground Roman olive pressing facilities. Our tour was by Corrado, the owner, whose family has owned the farm for generations. We saw vacant rooms of a new bed and breakfast... More

If you're in the area Masseria Brancati really is a must do! We found the place through trip advisor when we were staying in Cisternino and we were so pleased to find this gem! We called ahead and set up a time to tour the olive grove. The owner himself took at least 3 hours out of his day (way... More

You have to pay a visit to the Masseria Brancati! Corrado is passionate about his trees and gave us a great tour of the property. It is amazing to stay in front of such a tree and to think that it has been here for 2 to 3 thousand years and still produces olives that Corrado turns into a delicious... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the family owned olive farm. The beauty and history of the ancient olive trees combined with the proud passionate family who owns the farm made for an authentic Puglian experience. Not to mention, we learned so much about the quality of olive oil. Fascinating and fun!
