All inclusive 4 day olive oil harvest and wine mini break takes place Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th November and provides a fantastic introduction to the delights of Puglia. Prices from €555!!!

Come and experience the joy of making Puglia’s world famous extra virgin olive oil and take some of this liquid gold home with you, to amaze your friends with!

Roll-up your sleeves and have fun harvesting olives using centuries old, traditional methods – before watching some of the other ways that technology is now assisting the process.

You will also discover some of the best wines of Puglia with us. We have personally sampled and hand picked a variety of interesting and beautiful vineyards for you, to showcase the indigenous grape varieties of this amazing wine growing region. You will be able to taste and compare the most well know varieties such as Primitivo di Manduria and Negroamaro as well as lesser known varieties like Aglianico and Susumaniello.
