Ką veiksite

You will not be a guest but a part of the family. After meeting and presentation, we will immediately move to our olive grove where I will share all my secrets for a good farming of the olive tree. We'll explain you how to harvest with our hands, following the local tradition of olive picking while talking about the millennial history of what we call "Green Gold". After we will move to a modern oil mill to follow all the phases of extraction of the extra virgin olive oil. While looking the olives turning into green gold, we will take the opportunity to chat and taste the extra virgin olive oil and all the other products from my farm. We will then taste the oil straight from the press and bottle it, so to take a bottle of it home, as a memory of this wonderful adventure!

I live in my small farm in the countryside surrounding Noto, in South-East Sicily. Ten years ago, my North Italian wife and me, Sicilian, left the chaotic life of Milan and moved here, to build a family in this place of beauty. I love my land and I believe in an organic and sustainable agriculture. My extra virgin olive oil tells a story of passion and expertise as a farmer.

Corrado was a great host. Unfortunately we were not able to do the harvesting as there was heavy rain the day before and therefore the conditions not good. Besides from that we had a great time getting to know the harvest process, visiting the mill and having a tasting of the different oils. Corrado even gave us 2 bottles that were made while we were eating in the mill.

Absolutely fantastic! This was hands-down one of the top vacation experiences we have had. Corrado was extremely knowledgeable and patient with all of our questions. We picked olives from one tree. (Just enough work to feel like we accomplished something but not enough to feel like hard labor. :-) ) Then, we drove with him to the mill and we followed our olives through the crushing and oil making process. We tasted and bottled our oil and then we drove to his olive grove for a picnic under the trees. I highly recommend this experience or any experience Corrado offers. Thank you, Corrado!! We will be back.

It was an amazing tour! Corrado offers all his knowledge and his love for the land it products. It is far more than about olives, it is about Sicily! So this tour is really for everybody who wants to look a bit behind the curtain and form an more intense sight on sicily! Corrado is very nice and the tour is an extraordinary event!

My experience with Corrado was amazing. We took a drive to the country side where he explain the history about the land and the culture of farming in Noto. Along the way we stopped by his olive farm and showed me how to tell when the olives are good to pick or it’s a bad season. Who knew that mosquitos can lay eggs inside the olive that ruins the tastes. We then stopped a long a country road underneath the pear and almond trees for a picnic which everything came from his farm. Then the final stop was the mill (5th generation own and operates) where all the olives are pressed and turned into oil. The separation of the leaves and stems, the washing, the puree, the press and finally the separation of the meat and oil. The oil will have to be set inside the tank for 45 minutes before it can be transfer into a large aluminum tank to oxidized for 30 days before bottling. I was able to tastes the finished product. This experience takes a few hours but you will walk away with such appreciation for the industry. I will treat my olive oil with such care and appreciation from now on. My experience was wonderful and Corrado went beyond to make me feel Sicilian. If you truly want to have the cultural experience of Sicily’s country side then this trip is for you. Thank you so much, Corrado.
