Walking among the olive trees of Montedoro to discover the local Bianchera variety.
A refreshing moment with nature and the environment.
The Fior Rosso family will guide you in their holding where you will have the chance to see the Bianchera olive trees (in slovenian Belica) and understand the peculiarities which you can taste in its bitter spicy oil.
Bianchera is a plant which survives strong sea winds, limestone soils and harsh cold weather. You will see how the strong Bora wind typical of these areas affects its shape.
The Fior Rosso family will recount the olive growing history of Trieste and what it implies to do this ancient job today.
The oldest Bianchera olive growing witnesses are deeply rooted in Muggia and S. Dorligo-Dolina as well as in istrian lands where the olive growing tradition dates back to Roman times.
The taste and wholesomeness of its oil thanks to the high content of antioxidants have contributed to its popularity out of the region and attracted experts in the sector.
After the walk on the plateau overlooking the sea, you will have the chance to taste the variety of extravirgin oil produced by the company.
