In the morning we will spend some time at the olive grove with the local farmers who will show you the different techniques of gathering olive fruits, how to identify different types of olives and their characteristics. You will also be able to learn and pick olives. After some time working with the farmers at the olive grove, we will head to the home of the award-winning olive oil producer. Here you will be able to learn everything about the modern extraction process, called ‘continuous’. This isn’t just a fully automated process, still, huge skills are needed by the mill master (my aunt) to recognise the different characteristics of the olives for then setting the machine for the perfect procedure. You will see with your eyes and taste, the freshly pressed green gold in the Italian way, with a good slice of bread under the oil flow. We will then move to a special location with a view of the Teraman valley and have a private olive oil tasting of our award-winning olive oils, local cheeses, honey and Wine. For a grand finale, we will then head to a local honey producer to see how honey is extracted and watch closely the bees inside their hives. ONLY FEW DATES AVAILABLE!!
My cousins run the 110 years old family olive mill tradition. In 1909 we started with a stone mill and for 15 years we have been using a modern process (‘continuous’) of oil extraction. Isn’t just a fully automated process, still huge skills are needed to set the machine and transform simple olives into green gold. For our and south Italian family, having quality olive oil at home is essential and vital. It’s the secret of our healthy Mediterranean diet, and for making delicious tasty food. Olive oil for my family isn’t just business, but a healthy lifestyle.

Abruzzo, greenest region of Europe will surprise you! The mill is on the hills, located in the green countryside of the 'Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga' National park. A great spot for visiting the whole region, from the mountains, rivers, waterfalls, canyons, to historic hidden medieval towns, vineyards, olive groves and at 20m away from the beach.
