Fantastic, informational and enjoyable tour!
Oct 2020
My husband and I did a tour of the olive grove with Pietro, who was a fantastic guide. It was one of the best trips we did when we were in Puglia. Pietro showed us all the trees in the grove, some of which had been there for millennia, and then round the ancient and modern olive presses.

Finally, we had a blind tasting of multiple olive oils, and Pietro talked us through the differences of each one. We now feel we know a lot more about olive oil and had a really enjoyably time as well!

Don't go there with kids
Jul 2020
This would be a very nice place with interesting nature and history, but unfortunately we did not at all feel welcome by the guide on the tour. We were there with our three kids and when my husband asked her if we could wait with the start of the tour for a couple of minutes until the baby is asleep, she was complaining that this is not possible since she had to make sure that the next tour will start on time (we were the only ones on our tour and did – of course – not expect her to spend more time with us than we had paid for). When she started the tour, my husband translated her explanations for the kids and she complained again that like this she will have to skip a part of the tour since we would be much slower with the tour. It went on like this and in the end, we had to skip a large part of the tour and did not at all have a good experience on the farm.

A must if u want to learn more about the history of olive trees/oil production
Jul 2020 • Family
A wonderful place where u can actually touch 3000 year old olive trees and learn about olive oil production. We went there with our almost 6 and 9 year old kids and they loved it as well. The family which owns the place is extremely helpful, friendly and passionate about olives and olive oil. Highly recommended.

Interesting visit and the ancient olive trees are amazing!
Feb 2020
The owner, Corrado, opened the farm for us and offered an informal tasting and tour (normally closed in the winter). I was researching the area for group tours this summer. He was delightful and the oils were fantastic. He showed us around the old estate, the ancient mills and current operations. It was windy and cold, but he took all the time we needed to show us around, including the "Nonno (grandpa) tree" that was ~3,000 years old. Incredible place, and i look forward to returning in a few months.

An excellent glimpse of the history of olives and olive oil production
Oct 2019
Our tour took us through the nearby groves with ancient olive trees, and then into the original farm buildings to see the remains of the earliest olive press (Greek I think) that used an ox drawn grinding stone, through various modernizations during Roman times that increased production by using multiple screw presses, to a horse-drawn system that was in use until the 1960s. Highly informative about both the history and the current methods of oil production.

Wish I could've stayed longer
Jan 2019
I visited here with a Road Scholar group in November. The olive trees are amazing and I was surprised to learn that they're thousands of years old. If these trees could talk! These trees are beautiful to photograph and I wish I could've had a few hours to takes photos and also try to identify some of the birds flying among them. Unfortunately, when you're on a tour... oh, well. There was an olive oil tasting and we learned how olives are processed. I bought two tins of olive oil at the little shop there, but now a year has passed, and it has now gone with many meals. I guess I need to go back.

Everything we look for
Oct 2019 • Friends
When we visit a country and a region within that country, the few things we look to enjoy are the people, the history, and the food.

We got all three here at Masseria Brancati. From the tour guide so passionate about the produce and history of the Puglia region (we found a delicious Primitivo on his recommendation), the ancient olive trees, still working hard and producing fruit (a lesson for us all), to the history of the building, from ancient cave to modern olive production, then the delicious olive oil at the end, with a tasting so beautifully explained.

Then the shop you can purchase this liquid gold from.

History Captured
Oct 2019
This beautiful Olive farm has it all. Friendly guide and beautiful setting. This farm has beautiful old and new trees. In addition to the trees they have maintained and preserved the history of the masseria. The underground olive presses date back to Roman times. They have kept tools and equipment safely preserved for all to see. The tasting was simple but good and you may also purchase oil there in convenient quanities.
