Olive Oil Tasting > Wine Tasting
Join us for a day out, learning about and tasting fine examples of the region’s wines and olive oils, in a fun and relaxed environment.
In the hilltop village of Bucchianico, we will first visit an ancient frantoio (olive oil factory) which houses a precious olive oil press, carved entirely out of wood. Within the frantoio, we will learn what makes a great extra virgin olive oil, and how to distinguish a poor olive oil from a good (extra virgin olive oil).
A little way down the laneway, around the corner and down a couple of sets of stairs, we will find ourselves in an ancient cellar and serbatoio d’aqua (water storage cellar) which now houses a secret enoteca (wine bar). While enjoying delicious food pairings, we will taste and learn about some of Abruzzo’s best wines.
Private tour with English speaking tour leader, private transport, refreshments, and tastings, activities and food provided as per the itinerary.
