Meeting and transfer from hotel (hotel pickup is provided from Alberobello, Ceglie Messapica, Locorotondo, Cisternino, Francavilla, Ostuni or Brindisi) to a fortified masseria in the countryside of Ceglie Messapica.
Arrive at the masseria at approx. 10:30am and here start your day in the countryside. You'll start picking olives by hand from olive trees, assisted by the olive farmer for approximately 2 hours.
At approx. 12pm have a picnic lunch immersed in the wonderful Itria Valley countrysides, surrounded by olive trees, tasting local wine of some excellent local products and learning about our culinary culture and traditions.
After lunch visit a nearby olive oil mill, learn more about the milling process of the harvested olives. See all the machinery involved in the process to understand the squeezing process and finally get your own bottle of BIO extra virgin olive oil.
At the end of your experience head back to your hotel by comfortable transfer.
