For our last afternoon in Sirmione we decided to make the 45 minute drive into Vapolicella country up the tiny roads into the hills for an olive oil tasting with wine. We were met by Filipo who once introduced made us an espresso in the wonderful cosy "office" and then took us for a wander around the olive groves and vineyard. He was a fantastic host and extremely knowledgeable, taking us through the whole process. A tiny family run business spanning 6 generations. The most wonderful weather too giving us spectacular views and at the end of the day a wonderful sunset. The cellars and the red doors that hid a suprise of all the prized wines. Ending in the tasting of the oils and wine with a selection of cheese and salami. I can not recommend this experience enough, and then of course you get to take some home! They do ship easily to the UK and
other destinations.

A wonderful stroll through the nearby wineyard and olive trees. We had a "private" tour, as noone else had booked that day.
Tasting of olive oils from north to south of Italy, including their own olive oil.
We opt'ed for the olive oil tasting since we were driving and brought our 2-year-old daughter along.
Small luncheon provided with wine.

A thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience. We were greeted by two gracious and friendly hosts. The tour around their grounds was incredibly informative and eye-opening, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The tasting of the different olive oils was a brilliant experience in itself, and the knowledge we were given on the tour really helped for the tasting. We were able to sample olive oils from around Italy, local cheeses, meats, chutneys and their lovely wine. Overall, a great experience. Highly recommend!

My wife and I had an amazing time at this olive oil tasting. Upon arrival, the hosts immediately served us a cappuccino while the other guests arrived. Then we had a delightful tour of the vineyards with the friendly guide explaining some of the unique features of the area. She even included us on the tail end of the wine tour which was happening simultaneously. Then we sat down to a wonderful assortment of bread, olive oils, olive tapenade, cheeses and wines. It was really a meal more than a tasting. The ambience and view over the vineyard made it a highlight of out trip.

Such a great experience! Ilaria picked us up in Verona, and then drove us to her estate. On the drive up she told us about the area, took us up the extinct volcano that gives the valley its rich soil, and showed us the view from the top. Once at the estate, we walked among the grape vines and through the olive trees, and she began to explain about olive oil, the different types of trees, what kinds she grows, and much more. We then wandered through her wine cellars, and took a peek at some fermenting grapes. Finally, the tasting. Ilaria poured different oils from Italy, and told us what to look and smell for, and sure enough, when we tasted, we could tell what she meant. It's clear that Ilaria values the experience of having guests and visitors as much we valued our experience in visiting her. By the time she dropped us off back in Verona, I felt like I was saying goodbye to an old friend!
