What to expect

In our olive oil mill in Canino, we will hold a lesson on extra virgin olive oil and its history. We will learn about the physical, chemical and organoleptic characteristics of extra virgin olive oil. You will learn about the different cultivars and their distribution in Italy and around the world, and about the cultivation methods of Tuscia olive oil.

We will visit the olive oil mill, one of the most modern olive oil mills in Lazio, to explain how the harvesting and pressing of Canino olives and the preservation of Canino olive oil take place. We will show you how to correctly read the label and the costs of a quality extra virgin olive oil.

We will taste three types of monovarietal oil from our own production, comparing them with a commercial olive oil and giving you advice on how to combine them and use them to best effect in the kitchen.

We will continue with the tour to discover the famous Canino olive oil with a visit to four of our olive groves (Gioacchina, Monte Freddo, Spinicci and Capo Terzo) in a caravan, with our own car following the company Jeep. During the tour, we will give you information on olive cultivation. We will conclude the experience of discovering the olive groves of Tuscia with an aperitif.

Finally, we will move on to Farnese to conclude the evening dedicated to discovering the best olive olive oil mills in Lazio at the Trattoria Piazzetta del Sole, where we will enjoy a three-course dinner (excluding wine) with refined dishes inspired by the tradition of Tuscia, cooked with the use of several types of our monovarietal 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. 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. So don’t look for a generic list of oil mills in Lazio, come and discover our excellent monovarietal oils from Tuscia.


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

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.

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.
