GRAPE  HARVEST
In September/October you are invited to participate in the harvest in the wine yards around the property from the very start of the day to enjoy being in the nature. Once back you will attend the grapes squeezing which in few days will give the “new wine”.

OLIVE HARVEST
In October/November our guests may attend the olive harvest, if they wish so, in the fields within the property . Olives are immediately crashed at the oil-mill to obtain the “new oil”, a very tasty and perfumed product which is the basic ingredient for the “bruschetta” (grilled bread, salt, garlic and oil), one of the traditional Tuscan delicious food.

TRADITIONAL TUSCAN CUISINE
Our traditional Tuscan cuisine is at your disposal. Upon request we can organise classes to teach you our way of cooking in order to enable you to cook, back home, special Italian and Tuscan courses. At the end of the teaching lesson using local products you would taste what has been prepared, with good Tuscan wines to enjoy life and friendship.
