Join me in Puglia, unexplored Southern Italy in 2018!
Trullo Capital, UNESCO Heritage Site, Alberobello
Both agricultural regions with abundant healthy soil, over 50 million olive trees and a tradition of wine growing that has seen a fabulous dynamism in the last ten years, this area produces some of the most exciting wines in on the planet. There are more olive trees in Puglia than there are people in Italy!

We’ll have a leisurely visit to the UNESCO site of Matera (where Mel Gibson famously shot The Passion of Christ) and visit the Trullo Capital, UNESCO Heritage Site, Alberobello. Enjoy hands on Bread-making in Altamura where DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) bread is made from a revered mother dough, a cooking classes with me and an insider’s look at burrata cheese making. Plus a tour around the olive groves and oil tasting at an ancient olive oil estate where we saw trees up to 3000 years old, protected by satellite!. Don’t forget the private lunch at Li Veli winery.You can read more about my last Puglia trip here, Puglia the undiscovered heart.
