Well worth seeking this old Masseria out ... interesting and amusing guided tour of the olive oil making history ... and a walk around some of the 2000 year old "monumental" trees in the surrounding olive groves ... each one tagged and linked by satellite in an Italian university ... so don't to nick one! A nice little shop too.... More

After reading lots of reviews booking an olive grove tour with Masseria Brancati was an easy decision. Once on the tour we were not disappointed at all. Our tour guide Pietro was engaging and very knowledgeable, it is very refreshing to meet a guide who retains their passion for the tour and for €10 each was very worth the money.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, only one and a half hours, for 10 euros. Great English speaking guide who walked us round the property and olive making. The ancient trees were just amazing and its great that all the previous equipment and methods are kept alive to show people. Highly recommended, great value for money.

We read the reviews and couldn't believe it was even better than people wrote! We met the owner who was so gracious in welcoming us. Our tour guide was delightful. Cannot believe how the family has preserved so much to show how olive oil has been pressed for hundreds of years. Still hard for me to imagine the olive trees... More

Visited the Masseria with the family week and all really enjoyed the hour or so long tour conducted by Pietro. As many have said before it is a very good introduction to how olive oil has been produced through the ages, particularly interesting as we were staying in a converted trappeto (oil mill) so it really brought it to life...

Corrado Rodio runs an excellent two hour olive oil tour at his celebrated old Masseria, including his father and grandfather's machinery for pressing the fruit. We learned what to look for when tasting, and sampled various qualities of Pugliese oil. Also we saw some of his ancient olive trees. More than 1000 or even over 2000 years old. If the... More

Back to ancient times!!! In Masseria you can see 2000 - 3000 years olive trees, found out a lot of information about their growing, oil’s production and etc. It is like a very interesting educational lesson which is "crowned" with unforgettable oil tasting. Really worth to spend time there!

40% of Italy's olive oil comes from Puglia, so it made sense to my husband and I that we should visit an olive oil farm. Little did we realize when we wrote to the Masseria Brancati requesting a visit that our tour would be one of the highlights of this year's trip to Italy. Our guide, Pietro, knowledgably guided us...
