A Must See
Sep 2021
Although Trip Advisor states that this is closed, it is open -- BY APPOINTMENT. We called the day before to schedule a tour and olive oil tasting. They were very nice and said they were limiting the number of people on the tours due to COVID. We booked the mid afternoon tour the next day. We arrived and had to be buzzed in the gate. We wore masks. Our tour was 6 people. The tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was full of knowledge and we learned a lot about the history of olive oil in Italy and specifically this region surrounding Ostuni. We then had a private tasting and learned a lot about tasting olive oil and we were able to ask questions about buying, storing, using the oils. Very informative. We were able to buy smaller cans of oil there. If you'd like larger bottles, they will ship directly to you. Loved our time there and the grove of olive trees is stunning - some trees dating back 3000 years!

Definitely worth a visit
Jun 2021 • Couples
This was an amazing experience, we learned a lot about how the oil is produced and finally will be able to understand what to buy and how to choose an oil that will benefit the health as well as taste amazing. The hostess of the tour spoke good English and could answer all of our questions, told a lot about the history of the masseria. The blind test of the oils was very interesting and we ended up getting information about how we can order the oil right from the masseria to our home in Latvia. Could not suggest this place more!

Impressive olive trees and very tasty, award-winning olive oil (Ita & Eng)
Jun 2021 • Family
ENGLISH:
Kind family with very polite, attentive and patient son Domenico who takes you on a tour of the masseria. The tour is very enjoyable and instructive. You begin with the olive trees, which are pieces of art, then move indoors inside the hypogeum, then end it with an olive oil tasting under the 800 year old pine tree. The olive oils are of very high quality and can satisfy any palate, with 4 different levels of intensity, all award-winning. Look out for the cats who sleep in the most extravagant positions!

(I’m uploading only one picture so as not to spoil the experience)

ITALIAN:
Famiglia gentile con figlio Domenico molto cortese, attento e paziente che fa da guida per il tour della masseria. Il tour è molto piacevole ed istruttivo. Inizi con gli alberi d’olivo, che sono pezzi d’arte, poi vi spostate nell’ipogeo e finite con la degustazione sotto un pino di 800 anni. Gli oli d’oliva sono di altissima qualità e possono soddisfare ogni palato, con 4 livelli differenti d’intensità, tutti premiati! Tenete un occhio aperto per i gatti che dormono in posizioni stravaganti.

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.
