Old and Historic Olive Mill

If you would like to visit an ancient local olive mill, and sample real "Extra Virgin Olive Oil", Liguria has a very long history in the cultivation of olives and the area has a very special variety: the "Taggiasca" cultivar, a small and particularly flavoursome olive from which high quality oil is produced in small quantities, renowned throughout the world.


The Saglietto Agriturismo in Poggi (Imperia) offers the visitor the following programme:
•Visit to the old Mill with a talk on the virtues of extra virgin olive oil.
•A full explaination of the process from harvest to pressing.
•Afterwards there will be a brief explanation on how to recognize and taste oil from 3 different types.
•An aperitif with the locally produced "Vermentino" wine (white) plus a very tasty selection of home made snacks typical of the area.


Visitors can buy any of the Agriturismo genuine products and the excellent 100% certified Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil.
Products can be gift wrapped on request.
