Wine Entusiast in Wine Travel Destination 2013: Puglia, Italy
Dicono di noi: “To say that Puglia has Italy’s best food is no exaggeration. It offers fresh ingredients, whether pulled from the sea or picked from the nearest tree. Masseria Il Frantoio is a foodie’s paradise, with a never-ending appetizer spread and grandmothers kneading orecchiette pasta in the kitchen“.
Il NYT. travel in Winter, not summer, is prime in Puglia
Dicono di noi: “Lesson No. 4 unveils itself in short order: Winter is the time to visit a farm in Puglia. All those specialty items you’ll find in local shops — marmalade, nuts, olive oil — most likely were grown, harvested and packaged a few miles away. This quest will lead you directly to the Masseria Il Frantoio — part restaurant, part hotel and part organic orchard, primarily producing olive oil from 4,200 olive trees, some dating back over 2,000 years. It’s not exactly undiscovered — in fact, the owner, Armando Balestrazzi, will happily show off his book of press clippings — but because of the time of year, Ghigo and I had our own private olive oil tasting and lesson on the process“.
