Visits to the oil mill and guided oil tastings
To bring the consumer closer to the world of oil, we offer visits to the mill and guided tastings of extra virgin olive oil.
After the due welcome given to the groups, we start by visiting the olive groves with a description of the typical crops of Lake Garda and the production cycle of the plant. Among the centuries-old olive trees are shown some ancient stone machinery that were used for the production of oil.
From the field we move on to the production area of Frantoio, where the production phases are explained with description of modern milling techniques.
The activity can be booked from Monday to Friday at 11.00 and 17.00 for a cost of 7,00€ per person.
Then follows a guided tasting of the oil, during which some advices are given to the guests to make them able to appreciate and catch the different shades of perfume, color and flavor of all the oils of our production, as well as they are provided with usage tips and practical suggestions about possible combinations in the kitchen.
The tasting phase continues with a selection of Manestrini gastronomic specialties, such as olives, paté and other delicious vegetable creams.
For groups, events and corporate meetings, only by appointment, there is the possibility to customize the various proposals and to pay homage to your guests with a small present.
