With the girls of basketball in the heart of green Umbria

Ragazze Walford College Sorridenti al Vecchio Frantoio Bartolomei

They have overwhelmed us with all their energy, the girls from the women’s basketball team at Wofford College, South Carolina.

Like many other groups of students and tourists, they arrived in Montecchio, to learn more about the production of Olio Evo, to relax and savor our genuine cuisine and give us their curiosity and intelligence.

From the deep south of the United States, to the deep and unspoilt Umbrian countryside it was a moment to understand and love each other.

During lunch they were able to taste some dishes of our tradition, made of simple and tasty ingredients, from the different varieties of legumes to panzanella, from fanciful bruschetta to the inevitable cold cuts and cheeses. As a leitmotif, needless to say, Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, poured raw, and in abundance, to flavor and make each course special.

Gruppo degli studenti a professori del Wofford College

After the ritual toasts, the visit to the Oil Museum and the Oil Mill began, a journey through time, to discover our rural roots and the most ancient production techniques. Thank you for your attention and for your interest at all times, thank you for being with us. We will carry in our hearts the memory of your sweet smiles and your contagious joy.
