Olive Oil Tasting
Mozzarella cheese and Pizza making experience
Extra virgin olive oil was born in an old oil mill, located up the hills of Sorrento, Italy, a land which is traditionally devoted to the cultivation of olives. The factory we will be visiting is dedicated to the production of the best Italian olive oil, since 1849. For more than a century, history has changed the technology, but what remains unchanged is the passion that the farmers devote to their oil and the quality of their products. Among the most significant productions of the company, there are different varieties of oil that have won many awards for their culinary properties and their health. After discovering how extra virgin olive oil is produced and tasting all kinds of oil that this small family-run factory produces, we will go to visit a winery. Your private driver will take you to a local family wine cellar, where you can learn the whole process of wine making.
The local wine cellar we will be visiting has been producing various types of wine for many years. To be precise, the cellar dates back to the second half of the last century. During the Nineties., little restaurateurs in Sorrento and Positano bought this wine unlabelled to serve it as their own wine. In 1996, the cellar started to produce wine to send to the whole of the Campania region. After the demonstration, there will be some tasting of various wines with some delicious Bruschetta, Salami, Cheese, Olives & Tarallucci. Your Shore Excursion Salerno Gastronomic tour will continue on to a farm where they produce Mozzarella Cheese. On route, your driver will stop at a couple of scenic spots: the Peninsula point, where you will admire both the bay of Naples and Amalfi Coast, and in another spot, the hills of Sorrento.
The farm we visit on the Salerno Gastronimic Tour produces the famous Provolone del Monaco D.O.P. and mozzarella cheese. With this tour, you will learn the whole process of cheese making, you will see with your own eyes how to make mozzarella and if you are interested, you can become a cheese maker for the day, by trying to create your own mozzarella with the help of professional cheese makers. This factory also dries and seasons more than 1000 caciocavallos a year (our famous seasoned cheese). It’s a very enjoyable and unique experience. The Shore Excursion Salerno Gastronomic tour will continue to the local pizza restaurant. Here, they use the mozzarella cheese from the farm we visited and they also use all fresh ingredients from their own garden.
We will visit a family run restaurant where you will learn how to make pizza! This is a hands on experience and fun for all ages. The pizza you will create with the help of the pizza chef will be your lunch. Your Private Driver guide will drive you to the Limoncello factory. Before you taste the limoncello, we will walk through the citrus groves “L’agrumeto”, one of the oldest gardens in the area, so you can admire and smell the scents of the lemon & orange trees.
Limoncello is an Italian lemon liquor mainly produced in Southern Italy and often served by Italian restaurants after a meal as a digestive drink. We will visit one of the most famous family run Limoncello factories of Sorrento, that also produces the traditional Rum Baba dessert, a classic Neapolitan cake. After this delicious culinary experience, your private driver will take you to the port of Salerno in time to set sail. The Shore Excursion Salerno Gastronomic tour from the port of Salerno can be changed to your wishes. For example, you can add an ice cream class, and remove one of the other demonstrations.

This is the 2nd time in 3 years that we visited Italy and Vittorio took us for Olive oil tasting and a cooking class with a family. We had such a fantastic time. We felt like we were part of the family and enjoyed the food, company and wine! Vittorio is a fabulous guide...so personable and fun! We plan on coming back again!!
