EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL TOURS

Umbria is also very famous for extra virgin olive oil production.  Umbrian olive oil is one of the best in Italy and it is very good for our health thanks to its antioxidants.

A “D.O.P.” oil road has been identified in the region and it is divided in 5 areas: Trasimeno Hills, Assisi- Spoleto Hills, Martani Hills, Orvieto Hills and Amerini Hills.

D.O.P. means Denominazione di Origine Protetta (Protected Denomination of Origin) and it designates an agricultural/food product from a region whose quality and characteristics are essentially or exclusively due to the geographic environment where the product is cultivated.

Olive harvesting take place in October-November until the first weeks of December, a very special period to visit our region and to taste the new oil, just pressed.

Olive trees in Umbria belong to three varieties: Moraiolo tree, Frantoio tree and Leccino tree. Near Trasimeno lake there is also a special variety called Dolce Agogia.
The olives from the different varieties can be mixed together to create a “blend” extra virgin oil or they can be pressed separately to produce a so called “monocultivar”, each one with a different flavour and aroma.

Our olive oil tours include visits to family-run oil mills in the most famous Umbrian oil regions with tasting of the local produce along with accompanying local food products. Visits and oil tasting are guided by the owner/producer of the mills and always accompanied by Discovering Umbria staff, Alessandra and Leonardo, your food&wine local guides.

In growing olives, Umbria has a very special climatic conditions and soil composition and chemistry that allows a deeper root penetration with respect to other zones across the same latitude. This allows a slow maturation of the fruit and, for this reason, Umbrian oil is one of the best in Italy. The gathering of the olives happens before the fruit is fully mature and traditional harvesting methods called brucatura (manual collection with a rake), are used across the region. The olives are left in boxes only for a short time to maintain the freshness and integrity of the fruit until it reaches the oil press.
