Foligno, Umbria

The highlight of our 2013 December tour was a day spent with Marco Viola. His enthusiasm and pure joy of making great olive oil is contagious. After a quick tour of his spotless, lovingly maintained mill we went straight to lunch and enjoyed several local dishes with generous amounts of his freshly made 2013 olive oils. We enjoyed and passed the bottles of oil around the table as much as we enjoyed and passed several bottles of Sagrantino.
