olive press near giardini naxos - can anyone recommend one?

always dreamt of visiting a real olive press where you can try freshly squeezed olive oil by dipping fresh white bread into it...perhaps followed by a glass of red? Any ideas if such place exists anywhere near giardini naxos where we will be staying for 10 days?

Ciao flyaway78,

The olive oil harvest begins the last week in September and runs for three weeks, so October is the optimal month to visit, but you might still enjoy olive oil tasting.

You can visit an original olive oil press in Castelbuono. Contact Carmelina Ricciardello at Sicilian Experience. Pressing is done using the old technique of cold pressing.

Thank you so much for your kind recommendations! So many places to choose from...Carmelina from sicialian experience was very helpful also - it is a pity she operates slightly further away from where we are staying - but she appears to be very knowledgable and helpful and i would certainly love to use her services if we ever make it to Cefalu. She did however make a few suggestions like bread making or cheese making eхperience with local shepards that kids may enjoy - this is certainly sounds like something mine would - so I am in the process of researching what's on offer locally in giardini or nearby (any suggestions are welcome, by the way! :-)) and will definitely post my review once we've returned from our trip.

Also, is there an updated link with restaurants recommendations in Giardini Naxos that I may look up?

Prego flyaway78,

Carmelina would be a reliable and knowledgeable resource if you were to visit Cefalù. Cefalù is really an easy 2,5-hour drive from Giardini.

You might find restaurant recommendations on the Giardini Tourist Information website with links to the restaurant sites, and also on TA. La Vela would be wonderful for your family.

Thank you in advance for your report – Enjoy!
