Tour Description

divider

The Visit provides a complete explanation of the production process which turns the olives into the Tuscan P.G.I. (Protected Geographical Indication) Extra Virgin Olive Oil by integrated farming. Conducted by our staff in Italian or in English, the visit includes also the view of a video about the phases of the process, from the olive picking until getting our oil.

This tour is available all-year-round, from Monday to Friday, although the actual pressing of olives in Tuscany happens in the fall, usually late October through December. The olive press may not be in operation at the time of your visit, based on the season.

We do not request minimum number of people.

A Special Note on Extra Virgin Olive Oil

divider

Extra virgin olive oil is not only a staple on the Tuscan table, it is a source of pride and joy to Tuscans! The spicy, intense, green extra virgin olive oil you will taste on this tour barely resembles (if at all!) the extra virgin olive oil for sale in a grocery store at home. This authentic Tuscan olive oil comes from only specific olive varietals, is harvested early and pressed immediately to preserve the intense aromas and flavors… just a drizzle will have your taste buds singing. You will begin your tour discovering true Tuscan olive oil at the best possible place to learn about olive oil: an olive oil press in a small Tuscan village. During your tour of the press, you will learn how olive oil is extracted from olives, traditional versus modern techniques of extraction, the importance of factors such as harvest period, weather and heat during processing etc. Then you will have a chance to sample the extra virgin olive oil you have been learning about. With the help of your on-site expert, you will learn how professionals taste extra virgin olive oil and how you can judge the quality based on certain positive or negative characteristics present in the oil. You will also learn about tree varietals, different techniques of cultivation, and the differences between oils produced in different regions in Italy and the world. Don’t miss the opportunity to have the taste of this incredible extra virgin olive oil back home – the oil can be shipped directly to your home address!
