A choice of refined and exclusive experiences, ranging from peculiar places to our unique traditional cuisine, along with unforgettable moments of true local life.
1. Ride a Vespa, discover our food and wine
Hop on a true vintage Vespa moped for a romantic trip and discover some beautiful “masserie”: you’ll unearth some secrets of the Apulian architecture tradition and enjoy some light tastings of our local products. Your experience will end once back at Borgo Egnazia, with a full tasting of wines and recipes by our chefs.
2. The marvels of the Castellana caves
Visit a truly spectacular location: the karst formations of the Castellana caves, which you’ll explore treading along its underground Grand Trail, surrounded by million-year old stalactites and stalagmites, until you reach the Grotta Bianca, the all-white cave that is deemed as one of the world’s finest.
3. The produce of our land, from market to dish
In this up-close rendez-vous with the most genuine raw materials from our land, not only you’ll hunt a local fruit and vegetable market for the freshest and most natural ingredients, but you’ll also attend a cooking class held by our “massaia” Mimina about the making of some traditional Apulian recipes.
4. The Putignano masters of papier-mâché
Prepare to step into a magic place in Putignano: the workshop of papier-mâché master Deni Bianco, winner of the most recent editions of the town’s carnival. You’ll attend his workshop and learn about the history and techniques of artisanal papier-mâché and then visit the building sites where the masterpieces of the Putignano Carnival are made.
