Very special activities: Picking grapes, picking olives and or cutting olive trees
In autumn we offer you a possibility to help with the harvest of the grapes or olives. Of course you will taste our pure organic olive oil which is of excellent quality. Loreto Aprutino often wins the golden medail for her olive oil. The own made wine will take a little longer, but you will taste another very good wine. In autumn, winter or spring time it's possible to help with cutting the olive trees. It's necessary to do that every year so they will be able to grow better.
