My wife and I have just spent a week in the company of Cinzia and Marika - brilliant. If you are going to Puglia we cannot recommend Stile Mediterraneo highly enough - a fabulous experience. A mixture of superb food that we cooked ourselves under the expert guidance of Cinzia and Marika. We completed 3 cookery classes each better than the last, accompanied by outstanding wines selected by Cinzia a trained sommelier. The olive oil tasting which was fascinating and very informative combined with visits to an olive grove and very old olive oil press in an abbey. Our gourmet tour with Cinzia of Lecce learning about the fruit, veg, cheeses, breads and chocolates of the region really increased our knowledge of the area and the overall food experience. We also had a historical tour of Lecce a real insight into this beautiful town - not to be missed on any tour to Puglia. One of our highlights was a visit to the Castello Monaci Winery. A tour of the winery and tasting under Cinzia's expert guidance followed by a visit to the Castle itself was worth the trip on its own. We also spent a day visiting Ostuni and the Trulli area which even the rain could not spoil, very beautiful.
This was such a wonderful experience we are already planning our next visit.
