Owner description: "The enogastronomic tour of Schiazzano and its traditions" is a trip not to be missed, derived from centuries of food, drink, smells, culture and traditions born by the union of three masters, Eugenio Gargiulo, Benedetto De Gregorio and Lucio Esposito, respectively from the agricultural, dairy and catering sector with the intention to valorize and to know to all the visitors the most illustrious products of our beloved Sorrento Peninsula endowed with remarkable European marks: The Lemon of SORRENTO I.G.P., The EXTRAVIRGIN OLIVE OIL, The PROVOLONE DEL MONACO D.O.P and the PIZZA MARGHERITA.

“Of many excursion experiences, this is best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

We lucked up and happened upon this experience and we are so pleased. We were picked up in front of our apartment in Sorrento and driven by car to join a group of 20 at a small lemon and olive working farm. This farm is the home of Eugenio and his family. They live off of the two acres with vegetables, poultry and also they harvest their own ham. They have groves of lemons and 300 year old olives. Eugenia's father showed us how he grafts the lemon trees to make them produce from orange trees. Eugenio's mother served us sliced lemon and grapefruit with sugar as well as her own lemoncello and lemoncello tiramisu. If the farm tour weren't enough, Bennedetto, a registered provolone de Monico cheese maker, walked us through what makes this cheese unique. We tasted this cheese as well as Ricotta that was a couple of hours old as well as watched him make this region's version of Mozzarella. I cannot remember the correct name. All of this was served with home made bread. We also tasted this bread with three olive oils made from the products from Eugenio's farm...orange, lemon and regular Extra virgin olives oils. This was all served with their own home made wine. After all of this we walked 200 yards to Lucio's Pizzeria "da fransesco." There we were taught how to make the best crust with flour, water and pear. Yes...pear no yeast. Each of us took a turn tossing our pizza crust and added our own toppings before Lucio cooked it in his fired oven. We learned so many things today and will tell everyone we meet what a special experience it was. We were told to expect this to take five ours but because we waited out an unusual rain shower we were a bit longer. Not a problem as we all had a great time. We were returned to Sorrento by our same driver. The price of this experience was very reasonable.

“A great family day out & a must for food lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This day out was without a doubt the highlight of our holiday. From the moment we were picked up by Eugenio & Benedetto we knew we were in for an enjoyable day. They only take small groups, we had 7 in our goup including our daughter age 2. Our daughter had a fantasic day, running around the farm, picking the fruit & veg & seeing the farm animals. She was included at every opportunity by our hosts.

The knowledge & skill displayed by Eugenio & his father on our tour round the farm was fascinating. We picked tomatoes, grapefruit & lemons....all of which we got to taste later along with homemade marmalade, olive oil & wine. Benedetto's demonstration making various cheeses was excellent & the samples that followed were delicious.

As if all that food wasn't enough we then went on to Lucio's local restauant, a 5 minute walk away to make our own pizza. Our daughter loved this....as did the adults, tossing the pizza bases with a lot of singing & dancing in between.

Ths tour is a must if you're visiting Sorrento. The hospitality, eagerness & knowledge displayed by Eugenio, Benedetto & Lucio is fantastic & add to that amazing food, wine & scenery made for one of our most enjoyable holiday experiences. Thank you, Duncan, Laura & Emma xx

“Pure Gold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

As a family of four we decided to take in some local culture not really knowing what to expect. I can honestly say that this experience was a real gem. The knowledge, skill, attentiveness and most of all hospitality of this team was mind blowing. The tour started at 3pm and finished at 9pm...we have two young children aged 4 and 8, not once were they bored or marginalised. Eugenio, Benedetto, their family and colleagues were amazing. In this modern age where it all comes down to profit we were absolutely bowled over by the hospitality of Eugenio and his team. We all had a great time, tasting, making and laughing.
Thank you: Morné, Allison, Maisy and Harry.

“Food Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was absolutely the highlight of our time in Sorrento. The three local business demonstrated local passion about their food, where it has come from and it is made. We loved making the Pizza, tasting the produce the singing and welcome that we received. This is an absolute must go and see if you visit this area of Italy.

“Ardderchog - Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Previous reviews are evidence of the quality of this tour - so I won't repeat. I want to praise the ingenuity of the three friends/neighbours/family members for planning such a fantastic experience for the customers. The great thing is that the money goes back to the local community without a large holiday company taking a 'cut'. This is a well-thought-out tour and the delivery is done with humour - but these guys know what they are talking about. There were only three of us on the tour (my better-half, my ten-year-old son -with an attention span of a gnat - and myself) - so a diverse audience and hard to please. We were entertained and informed from start to finish, never bored: these men should run the country. We had the pleasure of being invited to look at family photos and meeting (Nonna) the grandmother who was in her nineties but quiet spry. A day worth the money. Go soon - before they become a theme-park. Each visitor to Sorrento should go on this trip. (Go on an empty stomach).
