You will discover the secrets of olive oil, in an astonishing and peaceful place! You will join us in the passionating art of producing olive oil, taking part of the tuscan countryside lifestyle for one day! From middle October to middle December we will pick together the olives from the trees, following the ancient technique of Chianti farmers. From January to May I will show you how to prune the trees and we will try together! IN ANY SEASON we will explain you the world of olive oil: how does it works the harvest, the pruning, the production of oil and the care of the trees. After visiting the olive groves we will TASTE THE OIL and prepare together a GENUINE LUNCH inside the historical Villa il Rossignolo!! The meal will be inspired by the Tuscan's peasant cooking, that is simple, genuine and really exalting olive oil's taste! The lunch will be vegetarian, organic, made with seasonal ingredients and vegetables from our garden or nearby farmers.

I've grown up with my family in this magnificent country region and I'm in love with it! For many years I have been taking care, together with my boyfriend, of the olive trees and the production of our delicious organic olive oil. My passion for traditional Tuscan cooking has always been part of my family and my mother passed it on to me, along with attention to the quality of the ingredients. That's our team!
We will start the experience visiting our 600 years old tuscan Villa (one of the Medici estate!!) and its beautiful park. Then we will go to the olive groves, where we will explore the olive oil world together, discovering how the production of olive oil works and enjoying the panorama of the famous Tuscan rolling hills! We will have lunch inside the villa.
Bring with you comfortable dressing and waterproof shoes, if you have it. Otherwise an extra pair of shoes and socks is recommended! If it's raining the experience could be delayed, if you prefer.
