  • price: 135,00 € per person

  • lunch and tastings included

You'll meet cheesemakers from small farms and visit a working oil mill
(late October to ealy December the tour includes attending the squeezing process!)

We'll take you to meet cheesemakers from small farms, where the quality of production is the highest in Tuscany. The visit to the farm starts in the workroom where the production of cheese takes place. Our partner farmers will tell you everything about cheese production, which may vary according to the season: from milk coagulation, to cheese salting or cheese-mould rinsing.

After the visit, you'll be treated to a genuine buffet with tastings of different kinds of cheese (goat, pecorino, vaccino, ricotta,...), together with local hams, different kinds of salami (all of them being made from the pigs of the farm), home-made honey and, of course, a good glass of wine.

The second part of the tour will take us visiting a traditional olive mill in one of the best EVOO-producing area in whole Tuscany. First, you will get a detailed introduction to the world of extra virgin olive oil, the techniques for olive picking, the kinds of trees found in Tuscany and the approach of the local olive farmers. During our visit to the mill, the farmer will tell you everything about the phases of the olive pressing process and the secrets of a good EVOO.

At the end of the visit, you will have the chance to taste and compare different types of olive oil of local production. This is a great chance to learn how to taste exquisite olive oil and to understand the differences between a traditional local production and a massive industrial production.
The tasting will be accompanied by some local olive-oil-based delicatessen and good wines.
