We will visit our olive oil mill, one of the most renowned olive oil mills in Lazio. We will explain how the olives are picked and pressed and how extra virgin olive oil is stored. We will show you how to correctly read the label and the costs of a high-quality olive oil.

The Food Expert:

Two people and the love for a territory, that of the Canino countryside, in the heart of Tuscia Viterbese, a stone’s throw from Saturnia hot springs. This is the beginning of the adventure that brought me, along with my life companion, to put down roots in this land and then, almost inevitably, to become producers of monovarietal extra virgin olive oils.

We produce extra virgin olive oils from five different cultivars (Canino, Leccino, Pendolino, Maurino and Frantoio) and from single plots. Our olive groves are mainly located on the volcanic soil of Canino and neighbouring municipalities. We look forward to seeing you at the farm for a guided tasting of monovarietal olive oil.


Cancellation policy: all bookings can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.

Our vision is ambitious: to enhance monovarietal extra virgin olive oils in their original territories, creating gourmet oils with a wide range of flavours and aromas. We want to enhance the essential flavours of monovarietal oils and the variability of their taste “year after year”, without trying to keep the taste “constant” with mixtures of more varieties.
