Guests will have the rare opportunity to take part in Puglia’s traditional olive harvesting practices. On organic, family-run olive farms, guests will participate in all parts of production, from harvesting and milling to pressing and bottling. You’ll learn how to taste olive oil and how climate, soil, varietals, and processing methods contribute to unique flavor profiles.

Once the olive oil has been produced, it’s time to use it! Especially Puglia’s cooking classes will teach you how to prepare authentic Pugliese feasts to delight your friends back home. Local chefs will lead the group through every step, from selecting the perfect produce and understanding regional food pairings and techniques, to canning and preserving freshly harvested fruits and vegetables.

Guests will stay in masserie, authentic fortified farmhouses, updated with modern comforts and amenities, on traditional farms producing olive oil, wine, fruits, and vegetables.

Itinerary

Day 1: Transfer from Bari Airport to Lucera

Stop At: Torre Normanna, Via Triolo, 71038 Pietramontecorvino Italy
We begin with a group transfer from Bari Airport to our masseria (a local organic farm offering elegant accommodation and food) set into the tranquil countryside and surrounded by the Dauni Mountains. We chat with the owner of the masseria and set off on foot to explore the area, with him as our guide. Along the way, you taste locally-made wines. We punctuate the day enjoying Pugliese recipes in Pietramontecorvino, uno dei Borghi piú Belli d’Italia (one of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy in English). We'll dine in a town landmark, overlooking the spectacular vista of Puglia's rolling hills, your home for the next three days. This is a project that promotes the great heritage of history, art, culture, environment and traditions found in small Italian towns off the beaten paths.

We are in the Gargano National Park that we’ll enjoy on a stroll after lunch in an agriturismo. (Agriturismi are a unique type of accommodation in Italy,featuring room and board in a farmhouse. In Puglia they are called masseria when the original structure was a fortified farm.) This place features also a Slow Food Presidium (Slow Food Presidia are worldwide initiatives to support quality production methods that are at risk of extinction) of the Gargano Podolica cow, which has been bred here for centuries and that we’ll discover on an informative visit during lunch.

After a visit to the quaint town of Lucera and its castle, dinner tonight is on your own. Please ask us for suggestions.

Then we transfer to the small village of Troia for a walk and visit to its Romanesque cathedral, followed by lunch on own.

Our last dinner is at our masseria and it features the local orecchiette (hand-made short pasta shaped like small ears) made by Michele’s mamma and aunt during a cooking demo, in addition to focaccia and other typical foodstuffs to complete the delicious menu.

Before we reach our masseria (elegant and eco-friendly countryside accommodation) for the night, we stop by Trani for a nice amble through this quaint sea town.

After lunch on your own we visit the UNESCO site of Castel del Monte, a 13th-century castle built by Frederick II, originally used as an hunting lodge and now one of the most fascinating castles built by the Swabian emperor.

Our local guide curates our learning experience around this enchanting city famous for “I Sassi” (houses dug into the calcareous rock). You may recall this unique setting as it was chosen as the backdrop for Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of Christ.”

Lunch is on your own today. Discover the local cuisine and unique delicacies of Basilicata (we are happy to make suggestions!) before we return to Puglia.
