We are the Podere di Monti farm producing high quality extra virgin olive oil from 4 years. We have received awards and publications in the most prestigious guides for our oils.
Enjoy the extraordinary experience of our extra virgin olive oil tasting; we go along with you in a sensory journey to discover the “liquid gold” Whether raw or cooked, extra virgin olive oil will always improve the flavour of a dish in which it is used but that combining is an art and we will give you the best sources of information possible. After a brief introduction on this pillar of Italian gastronomy’s history and cultural legacy, we walk our guests through our production philosophy centred on the use of a low-impact oxidative system that respects the cultivar’s integrity and traceability.
We will conduct our tasting on our farmhouse; an old rectory dationg back 1200, sorrounded by the tuscany rolling hills.
