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.

Extra virgin olive oil
What to expect at Arianna's place
A beautiful and otherworldly experience! Arianna is a true sweetheart who welcomes you into her life of olive oil making. Together with Max (the smartest and sweetest dog in Salento) she showed us around the masseria and olive grove, and shared the passion she inherited from her father for her family business. Walking, talking and eating among the fifteen thousand olive trees was very relaxing and meditative. I secured a bottle of olive oil and other delicacies to bring along my trip. While I'm writing this I'm enjoying the marinated lampascioni, super delicious!
Arianna provided a true taste of Italy and was a fantastic & gracious host. It's one thing to eat under the canopy of 200 year old olive trees but the experience was made all the more warm and meaningful through the conversations we had. I highly recommend spending your evening with Arianna if you're in the Brindisi or Lecce area!
