It is all a journey of discovery, of churches, of late medieval houses and the lone

Olive oil tasting and a visit to the oil mill. Expertise, passion and dedication make Liguria’s own green gold quite unique. The oil mill is a family place where you can meet, talk and taste genuine local products for an unforgettable experience.
Wine tasting. Viticulture in Liguria certainly cannot be described as a simple task, where steep slopes and challenging paths have meant the work of the vineyards has oft been described as “heroic”. Perhaps it is just this that makes the wines of this land special. We would like to lead your through the vineyards to show you their beauty, with their scents and colours, and let you taste the fruit of the skilled work as handed down from generations to generation.
