Escape the crowds of the city and spend the morning in the glorious Tuscan countryside, taking in spectacular views of rolling hills and historic villas. Visit a family-run organic olive oil and wine estate nestled deep in the countryside outside Montalcino
Upon arrival at the farm, you will be greeted by the farm owner and given a tour of the estate.
In Italy, olive oil is not just a grease to cook with, but a food itself, a protagonist of our cuisine. With this activity, we will be different from style and techniques.
To begin, enjoy a two-hour olive oil tasting tours at an oil mill in Tuscany with a mini-seminar on extra virgin olive oils and comparison tests.
You will get a detailed introduction to the world of extra virgin olive oil tasting in Tuscany, the techniques of olive collection, the kinds of trees available in Tuscany and the “mentality” of the local olive farmers. Then you enter the mill and see the whole machinery. The tour leader helps you discover all the phases of the olive pressing process and the secrets for a good extra virgin olive oil.
You will then be driven to a gorgeous rustic organic cheese farm that sits on top of a hill overlooking the entire Val d’Orcia and even Pienza itself.
Experience the flavours of Tuscany on our food-and-wine tours and indulge yourself in true Italian style.
The owners of the dairy will make for you a tour of the estate and tell you some secrets of cheese production. Then you will sit at a beautiful veranda surrounded by orange, lemon, olive and almond trees, and taste many different types of locally produced organic Tuscan cheeses – Pecorino, Ricotta, Primo sale, and other organic food produced on the farm with local red and white wines from Valdorcia.
Add a loaf of fresh-baked bread, a bunch of grapes and plaid on a panoramic hill in Tuscany and you have the perfect romantic recipe… Fun, Family, Friends, Love, these are the ingredients of our tours!
After lunch, let’s completely change location .. Visit a spectacular place near Pienza, high-quality of wines, so different from what you have tasted during the day. Their staff is really friendly and will explain their winemaking process in detail, along with the secrets that are behind a glass of wine (Tuscany is not only Sangiovese!).
Above all … you will taste Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Their Olive Oil is .. Unique!!

Fantastic service by Nicolo. Easy to communicate with, always on time and very knowledgeable. Had a great few days around Buonconvento and Montalcino. Definitely look these guys up when you're in the area
I can highly recommend Nicolo and team. Great service, always on time, and very knowledgable of the area.
The wine tour with Niccolo was one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. Very well planned by Niccolo, who picked us up and took us to Fattoria dei Barbi, one of the oldest vineyards in the region, 5 out of 5. Thanks Niccolo, we'll be back!
