| Olive oil and wine tasting and tours
La Torretta Bed and Breakfast
Sabina olive oil is known throughout the world for its intense scent, fruity and delicate flavor-which leaves a slightly spicy tang in the mouth-and color ranging from gold to intense green to amber. Sabine Gld" Olive Oil won the Bronze Medal at the Philadelphia International Gastronomical Congress in 1976! And recently the Sabina olive oil has won DOP recognition, which means that all phases of its production process take place in Sabina, according to local agricultural traditions.
In Casperia at the Geko wine and oil tasting bar, you can taste and buy, oils that have won prestigious prizes, like the best oil in Lazio and the best oil in Italy. The tasting is with Johnny Madge who is on the panel of judges for the Slow Food Olive oil Guide of Italy.
You can enjoy a great wine tasting at il Geko Wine Bar, run by Johnny Madge, who will introduce you to some wonderful lesser known Italian wines, or direct you to wineries.
You can also take a tour with Johnny to explore the Sabina where the Olive trees are a constant characteristic of the landscape . So join us at La Torretta and during your stay experience both a wine tasting and olive oil tasting.
