What you'll do

3 ways to Find out olive oil secret ! You will learn to recognize extra Virgin olive oil to bad oil, in a real italian oil firm. I’ll be waiting for you in the parking place of the village of APRICALE (and I’ll provide all details to effortlessly reach it), together we’ll decide wether moving on foot across the olive tree grove (about a 40 minute walk) or keep on going by car. If you choose the path on foot, we’ll cross the lovely village of Apricale, recognized among “Italy’s most beautiful Villages”. Beyond the village our walk among the olive tree groves will begin. The path is simple, but slightly uphill. Together we’ll discover the typical Ligurian terraces known as “fasce” (strips), created through the ancient craft of the DRY WALLS, acknowledged as Unesco World Heritage. Once arrived at our grove, I’ll tell you about the cultivation of the olive tree from the initial pruning until the harvest and final pressing. In the suggestive setting of the olive tree grove I’ll reveal all the secrets of our job, I’ll make you sample our “Evo” olive oil and teach you how to recognize its features and differences with olive oils from other places. There will be also other local gastronomical delis which will make you fall in love with our land of Riviera.
