Puglia’s Golden Harvest

3rd - 7th October 2024 

A culinary journey through centuries of olive oil and between land and sea

Olive oil is Puglia’s lifeblood and the varieties pressed here are said to be among the best in the world. For Fulvio, it is one of life’s luxuries

Pierangelini, Fulvio
"Puglia offers the feel of earth and sea, of expert and hard working women and men in the know. One watches and listens with surprise, amongst the olives who have witnessed the times"

The Experience

Discover a four-night experience at Masseria Torre Maizza with the golden allure of olive oil at its heart. Puglia’s abundant natural ingredients have made it a pioneer in the slow travel movement but it’s time spent with our Creative Director of Food, Fulvio Pierangelini, that makes this culinary retreat so special. 

Explore fruitful and expansive vistas, from the fishing boats to the land, punctuated by trulli houses. Drawing on the local landscape is central to Fulvio’s philosophy. “I try to imagine dishes that resemble the place that you’re in, no matter where it is in the world,” he says.

This gastronomic journey will take you from the sea to the sun-dappled olive groves and vineyards, via local dairies, as you explore all of Puglia’s gastronomic delights. Learn how to make local produce and linger over long lunches. Fulvio will be there to guide you along the way, sharing his expertise and cooking for you at the hotel and beyond.
