I'm an agricultural entrepreneur from Lecce with a special passion for extra virgin olive oil. My family have been producing olive oil since 1885 and now after four generation, I continue working with new agricultural knowledge but still the same enthusiasm and care. I believe that our olive grove is a special place and I would love to share an aperitivo in a natural atmosphere with you. I enjoy preparing meals and health recipes for my friends and I think that you will enjoy this unique experience too.
I'm in my twenties
Extra virgin olive oil
What to expect at Arianna's place
Arianna has a passion for olives and it was evident from the moment we met her. You could feel her pride as we walked through her family's olive grove, as she provided history about the groves and of her family. It was interesting to see the historical complex where the workers lived and worked, including a small chapel. After the tour, we sat in the grove and she taught us how to taste olive oil and what to look for. This was followed by a wonderful spread of foods and wine from her cousin's winery. It was topped off by a delicious olive oil chocolate cake. It was a delightful event. Both Arianna, and her friend who helped out, were so easy to engage with and shared a lot of information about the region. We highly recommend this opportunity with Arianna!
Surrounded by over hundred-years-old olive trees, we had the most delicious aperitivo and olive oil tasting experience. The atmosphere was amazing and unforgettable! Host Arianna prepared very delicious food and even baked the cake for us! Also, she taught us a lot about olive oil and showed how to enjoy its taste at the maximum. The experience was 10/10 :)
