ENJOY OLIVE HARVEST IN TUSCANY

Olive Harvest lesson with olivemaker following grom picking olives by hand from the olive groves. The olivemaker will teach olive tree processing techniques up to the cultivation of olives and the harvesting of olives by hand from the trees. It is a unique experience and only for people truly interested in this type of exclusive activity.

After these olives will be pressed in the machinary and you'll taste the first cold pressing oil.

An olive harvest is one of the most fascinating experiences you can enjoy in Tuscany. It is a wonderful way to learn a lot not only about the local wine & food traditions but also about the local culture. While the atmosphere at the oil mill is as unique and festive as picking the olives, nothing quite compares to the love, sweat and effort put into working the groves. Families and friends work long days together to harvest Tuscany’s substantial olive groves, honoring a regional tradition passed down through generations to come.

Our olive harvest experiences for visitors to Tuscany are available in November and December. You meet our expert in the morning and you reach our beautiful olive grove where you have a general introduction to the world of extra virgin olive oil and to the harvesting techniques.

Then you start collecting olives from some selected trees assisted by our guide and by the olive farmers. During the whole harvesting experience the guide gives you facts and information about extra virgin olive oils and the culture of olive oil making in Tuscany.

AUTUMN SEASON AND WINERY ACTIVITIES

While summer is the most popular time to visit Tuscany, many travelers will agree that Autumn is one of the most exciting and unforgettable moments in the year.

 

Harvest season is in full swing which means new wine and olive oil tasting, and the hunt for winter white truffles begins.

 

Tuscany is considered the leading producer of extra-virgin olive oil in the world. This region in Central Italy is blessed with luscious olive groves and rolling vineyards, growing several types of olives.

 

You’ll often hear Tuscans refer to extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) as oro verde (“green gold”). Unlike regular olive oil, extra-virgin is pressed without heat and chemicals, making it the most expensive and desirable oil in the world.

 

Thanks to this experience you will be able to discover the art and skill behind the production of Tuscany's green gold. Unlike wine, another defining Tuscan gem, extra-virgin olive oil comes directly from the tree.

 

Freshness and authenticity are rich in Tuscan EVOO, reminding you of its natural sourcing with every taste.

The Harvest Experience is priced € 250.00 per person and includes:

  • All wines tasted

  • Visit of the olives groove where you will enjoy the experience
