About
A full immersion in the world of oil to understand what makes it special to not be able to do without it. We will see how the extraordinary olive tree is grown, how the oil extraction method has evolved over the centuries, we will taste fantastic oils and we will have fun deciding which is the best with the method of true professional tasters! Finally we will learn why a quality extra virgin olive oil is not only extraordinary for our health, but how it can be a vehicle to protect the environment, the landscape, biodiversity and cement a community. A different experience from the usual visit with tasting, highly engaging and suitable for everyone, young and old!

What to expect
  • We will visit a family-run historic oil mill, one of the most renowned in the area. We will take a tour of the company and taste two excellent types of oil. Then we will go to a very special organic farm, where a young farmer combines ecology and tradition with technology and innovation to achieve extraordinary results. We will taste various oils by the glass, like professional tasters to distinguish quality and defects in oils and learn more about the social, economic and health implications of agriculture today. We will end with a fantastic lunch prepared on the spot with the products at 0 meter of the farm!

Beautiful landscape, delicious food, wonderful people. A deep insight into the olive oil world. Not just the usual tasting but a realistic view of the situation of farming in Italy. I deeply recommend this experience to everyone who's interested in healthy food and sustainability, olive oil and authentic Tuscany.

I really enjoyed this activity because I learned so much about olive oil (how it’s made, how to taste it properly) :D
Francesco and his colleagues from the mill and the oil tasting were very nice and professional.

I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Italian culture!
