Extra Virgin olive oil is the protagonist of the gastronomic tradition in Umbria. Umbria was the first Italian region to receive the DOP designation for the entire territory. The Umbrian countryside is mainly represented by the expanse of olive trees that covers the hills, giving them a particular, charming silvery green color.
At the end of November the hard work of the Olive harvest has been completed, and finally it is possible to taste the new olive oil. Thanks to the favorable environmental condition our olive oil has an intense green color and a unmistakable taste, but above all a low degree of acidity.
The Culinary packages offer you the possibility to taste the new olive oil participating in amazing tours. Guided sampling visit in a mill where you will discover the production olive oil methods and its tradition. You also have the possibility to buy oil. Visit of the Olive oil Museum in Torgiano and participation in the traditional“ Festa della Frasca” in the medieval Village of Giano dell’Umbria.
