We start this exciting food tour with a visit to Gargiulo extra virgin olive oil factory. With breathtaking views over Sorrento, we take a stroll through orchards of olive, lemon and orange trees - you will be surrounded by the perfume of the different blossoms. Enjoy a demonstration on the production of Olive Oil from the olive on the tree to the bottle. Followed by a delicious tasting of this fine Extra Virgin Olive Oil on freshly baked bread.
On our way to the next stop, the mozzarella and cheese makers, we stop for a fantastic photo opportunity over the two bays - the bay of Salerno and the bay of Naples - and a bird's eye view of the famous Amalfi Drive.
You will be welcomed with open arms by the family at the cheese farm, who have over 50 years of experience. After touring the farm, watch the making of mozzarella (a cheese that originated from the Naples area), participate in a wonderful explanation of the entire process from the 1st drop of milk to the final product, which you will taste with lunch…
LUNCH ... Time for a light lunch, included in price, set in peaceful grounds of the family-run farm. Sit back and relax with antipasta of local 'in season' vegetables, salami, with freshly made pasta to follow. You will also taste the fresh mozzarella you have just witnessed being made. All ingredients from the area. Lunch is served with local wine and soft drinks, followed by Limoncello, a local liquor used as a digestive drink by the Italians, and a great way to freshen your taste buds for our next stop! ....
Wine tasting at a local winery, full demonstration, visit to the cellar and tasting of up to 9 wines. A hobby adored by generation after generation turned into a successful business, they now supply most of the hotels and restaurants in Sorrento. The newest addition to their line is the DOC 2006 red and white.
We now head back into the heart of Sorrento for Italy’s famous GELATO (similar to ice cream but not so frozen, and a lot tastier!!) as they say 'no visit to Italy is the same without gelato’. Here we meet Mario, award-winning celebrated TV personality, duly noted in RICK STEVES guide to Italy 2018. A 3rd generation master of the famous Sorrentine Gelato, Mario will happly show you the secrets to making the perfect Gelato with lots of tasting during the process.
A perfect end to a day tasting the delights of Southern Italy.
