We really enjoyed this experience and would really recommend it. Its that nice feeling you get when you're getting the tour from people who really love and live what that do. The quality of their product is unquestionable! There's a fascinating historical aspect to the tour too. We bought a small bottle and enjoyed it in a home-cooked meal at... More

3000 year old trees overseeing the Messapian, Greek, Roman and Medieval times - WOW! Call the owner in advance for a visit (possible in English) to this impressive Masseria and directions how to get there. During the visit you can see some of the oldest olive trees in all of Italy and the guide explains not only why this place... More

Well worth a visit. Some of the olive trees are unbelievably old. Tasting the different types of oil was good too.

We enjoyed an interesting tour of the ancient olive tree plantation and historic olive processing underground 'factory' with the charming and enthusiastic Anna Rita. She was lovely with our children (who can be challenging!) and we learnt a lot. The oil was delicious too as was her recommendation for lunch in nearby Ostuni.

We stopped at the masseria on the recommendation of a friend. It was one of the most incredible places I have ever visited. We learned all about the olive trees, how they were planted (the spacing), the collection and production of the oil. The history that surrounds this masseria is magical, it was a very moving place. The oil tasting... More

This masseria is very impressive, there is very much history in all aspects: the buildings, olive trees and landscape. Taking a tour is a must do for better understanding of history in making olive oil but also history of the whole region. Besides the location and tour, the masseria also have several rooms for B&B. We stayed for 2 nights... More

Pietro sat with us at a table under the trees and gave us a lesson on olives and their pressing into oil. We learned why the olives from the same tree can taste different simply by picking them earlier. I was a great time spent and now we have to find room in our luggage for 3 more liters of... More

We visited the Masseria for a tour with Pietro and had the pleasure of meeting the owner and his son. This farm is obviously a family treasure and labor of love. Pietro's tour was fun and informative. Myy friends and I learned a lot, not just about olive oil, but a history of the farm, the region and the wonderful... More

We had seen the other great reviews for this masseria and decided on a whim to visit. We were able to secure a 3 pm tour for our family of four It was a semi-private tour with one other couple from Sweden. Our guide, Pietro, was excellent. He engaged our children ( ages 10 and 12) and was so full... More

Who knew that there was so much interesting information about olive trees? Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the olive grove and the seeing the ancient presses. Tasting the oil (which was delicious) took on added significance. One of the highlights of our visit to Puglia.
