Description

We'll take you to meet real Italian cheese makers from small farms, where the highest production quality in Tuscany can be found. Our visit to one of the farms starts in their workroom, where the production of cheese takes place. The professional farmers will tell you everything about the production of the delicious Italian cheese, which may vary according to the season. From milk coagulation, to cheese salting or cheese-mould rinsing. These passionate experts are happy to answer all your questions!

After the visit, you'll be treated to a genuine buffet with tastings of different kinds of cheese. Just imagine tasting all those delicious cheeses like goat cheese, pecorino, vaccine, ricotta and many more… This will come 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. Enjoy!

The second part of the tour will take us visiting a traditional olive mill in one of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) producing areas in whole Tuscany. 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 from 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 , again of course, good wines.
