Gusto's Umbrian Wine Adventure

Olio Nuovo

Posted in Umbrian Life by gustowinetours on October 28, 2010

Yes, yes, yes, I know that it’s not WINE, but this region has the most SPECTACULAR olive oil, and this weekend (30,31 Oct, 1 Nov) the frantoii (Olive oil mills) are open to the public to show off their fabulous wares – usually coupled with hot bruschette grilled on a massive BBQ over charcoal with a few juicy sausages and, last year, I tried olive oil icecream – topped with some green olives, and believe me – it was delicious!! Can’t wait!

      Thanks! Umbria and Le Marche are both fabulous regions for their food and wine! We’re so lucky to live where we do, aren’t we? :-)
