Visit an Italian masseria near Lecce and discover the process of making Giuncata cheese

To immerse yourself in the authenticity and traditions of Puglia’s culture, exploring the Salento countryside and visiting the Masseria Cinque Santi is a must.

The Cucugliato family welcomes you to a hidden heaven made of palm and olive trees, where sheep and goats graze freely on the Salento grasses. And it’s in this setting that delicious, traditional cheeses are made.

Join the family for a workshop on how to make giuncata, a traditional local fresh cheese. Guided by Lina, the farm’s passionate owner, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the methods she uses on a daily basis. You’ll make giuncata by hand and take it with you in a reed container wrapped in fig leaves.
