olive oil


3 day olive oil weekend

Please enquire for 2020 dates.

In the Caprafico valley where Fireflies & figs resides, there is an abundance of olive trees which are overlooked by the beautiful Majella Mountains. The Masciantonio family have been producing their special oil here for over 200 years.


Experience the ancient traditions along with the modern ways that are used to make olive oil. Get stuck in and learn how to pick a laden olive tree and see the journey from tree to bottle. Taste the local olives, taste the fresh pressed oil and enjoy a special 5 course olive oil tasting menu under the olive trees.


Jono and Fern have created this exciting weekend, which will fully immerse you in all things olive. They have lived and breathed this valley for over 10 years and will guide you through the countryside indulging your senses at every turn.
