We will visit a family-run historic oil mill, one of the most renowned in the area. We will take a tour of the company and taste two excellent types of oil. Then we will go to a very special organic farm, where a young farmer combines ecology and tradition with technology and innovation to achieve extraordinary results. We will taste various oils by the glass, like professional tasters to distinguish quality and defects in oils and learn more about the social, economic and health implications of agriculture today. We will end with a fantastic lunch prepared on the spot with the products at 0 meter of the farm!
