We had a very pleasant trip to Frantoi Cutrera. The visit was ok in terms of timing (close to harvest) and we had a very interesting tasting of different olive oils. It's definitely worth the visit!

After seeing positive reviews online, and since we were in the area, we decided to stop by. It's definitely got more of a 'commercial' vibe going on, although there were signs of private tours being conducted, based on the taxis and small buses in the parking lot. We found our way to the front office, and one of the staff came over. They have a pretty slick oil dispensing wall display, and he helped us taste a few of their different varieties. Although there was a bit of a language barrier (I only know a few Italian phrases), he was quite helpful, and we ended up picking out a few bottles to purchase. If you are interested in visiting here, I would recommend coming back during the olive harvest later in September until November, and probably calling ahead or arranging a private guide. If you're only interested in buying some oil directly/gifts, then you shouldn't have any trouble.

Outside the small village of Chiaramonte Gulfi, we were recommended this brand. When we arrived, the factory was closed however, one of the staff kindly showed us round as by chance he was at the factory. We were told the history of the Olive Oil and the different kinds. He also described how the Olive Oil is made in great detail, showing us the machines used in the process and even what temperatures were used. He would tell you the difference between good olive oil quality and the health benefits towards it. We were able to try samples of many of the oils in which we came away with 2 bottles. The oils have won as many awards as 4/6 at a recent worldwide competition and we could clearly see why. Beware they might be closed from the August week of 15th - 21st so recommend to check before visiting. A trip worth while!

We popped in by chance as we came across this olive oil production whilst looking for another attraction in the area. We happened to find it with some help from the locals as it is first signposted well but then not at all. Upon arrival the smell of the freshly pressed olives greeted us and we were met by a lovely young gentleman who explained that the best time for visiting was January onwards ( we went in November) so we could not actually get an explanation of the actual olive pressing. However whilst waiting our turn to be served we could see the oil pouring out of the vats as private clients had brought in their own olives to be pressed. Quite a sight to see. Impressive. You can also buy different kinds of oil on site, even medicinal.

We were allowed inside the Frantoi Cutrera to see the production of the picked olives. We tasted and bought some very nice Olive Oil.
