EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL EXPERIENCE
Join us to live a unique and authentic EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL EXPERIENCE spending some hours together at Tananei farmhouse, our paradise on hills surrounded by olive trees, in the most genuine and authentic Tuscany.
What we'll do
We will make a "walk" through the EVO Oil world, exploring the entire process from cultivation to olives harvest, transformation at oil mill and finally conservation.
Then we will have a real walk among our olive trees to start recognizing the different kind of olives. You will have the chance to admire a beautiful landscape, where you can see all the beautiful nature Tananei farmhouse is surrounded by.
After that we will introduce you in the charming world of professional oil tasting, as done by the official testers (oil sommeliers).
At the end you will enjoy an unforgettable dinner (together with red wine of the area) where Tuscan specialties will be flavored with different kind of EVO Oils, so that you can start learning how to combine EVO oils with food. The dinner will be served alfresco, among the olive trees or in front of our crackling fireplace depending on season.
Although the course is managed by professional of the EVO Oil sector, it will be a funny experience in an informal setting. At the same time it will be a UNIQUE experience because we are among the few to be EVO Oil producers + official EVO tasters + restaurateurs!
Where we'll be
We'll make the experience in our farmhouse on Tuscan hills surrounded by wood, in the heart of a luxuriant nature, in Valdinievole between Florence and Lucca. Our farmhouse is a stone house with a typical rural Tuscan architecture, producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1861; a mix between traditions, and innovative technics guarantees the best product from a quality point of view with full respect of the environment.
