Another great product from Tuscany it’s the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, therefore if you are interested in discovering more about the “ liquid, green gold ” from Tuscany , how it is made, its characteristics , its nutritional properties and tastes well, this is the right tour for you ! We will bring you to visit a couple of “artisan” olive oil mills where you will have the possibility to be told about how olive oil is extracted from the olives and depending by the time of the year (late October, early November) even to see how it is produced. However the most important thing is that you will have the occasion to taste the real thing and to compare it and to understand the difference with ordinary extra virgin oils of industrial production which are to be found quite commonly on the shelves of super markets.
With this tour you will also have the possibility to sightsee trough the splendid Chianti countryside dotted with beautiful vineyards and olive groves, quaint medieval villages and hamlets that are preserving still intact all the charm and beauty of the bygone days and certainly we won’t miss the opportunity for selecting a nice local restaurant, where you will have the possibility to enjoy an authentic and tasty Tuscan lunch !
With each wine tour, we will generally stop for the visit and tasting at 2 wineries (please consider, that the visit + tasting at a winery it normally lasts 1 - 1 ½ hours) at one or two hill top towns and of course we will stop for lunch at some nice, good, local restaurant, where you will have the possibility to enjoy a truly authentic and tasty Tuscan Meal !
In case you had other preferences and requests , we will be more than glad to customize a tour accordingly and to provide you with its relative quote.
