Reviews

We received a very interesting, educational and fun tour of the cooperative. Raffaele is clearly passionate and explains it well. We had 2 young teenagers with us and they were also able to follow along well. Afterwards we were allowed to taste whether we could distinguish extra virgin olive oil from regular olive oil. Nice shop. We bought some oil, chocolate spread and honey at fair prices. Recommended for young and old with an interest in olive oil and craftsmanship.

I highly recommend anyone in the region to go on tour and experience extra virgin olive oil tasting here. the explanation and walkthrough of the mill was really special and we really enjoyed learning about the co-op. we left with a deep appreciation of the products and now know how to differentiate extra virgin olive oil from fakes.

It was an absolute pleasure to visit the facility today. Lorenzo was kind enough to provide a tour for my wife and I during the off-season where we learned much about the local cooperative, the processing/green efforts being implemented, and the differences in various olive oils. I would highly recommend this hour-ish long tour for anyone in the Tuscan region.

For schools

We are available to host children/teens classes throughout the year and in particular during the pressing period. Different types of visits are possible depending on your needs.

Here is our offer for kindergarten and/or primary school children:

"Little ones oliandoli"

This path is designed to explain and let children experience the experience of the birth of extra virgin olive oil, a food present on our tables and the basis of the famous Mediterranean diet

The experience consists of two moments:

-The pressing. The children will be welcomed and will visit the oil mill where the olives they collect will be sent for processing: that of extra virgin olive oil is one of the few supply chains where the transformation of the raw material (olives) into the finished product takes place in a short period of time (oil). One of our expert operators will accompany them to discover this magical transformation!

- Grandma's snack; at the end of the journey everyone will be offered a tasty snack based on bread and freshly pressed oil. The pupils will be involved and active at every moment of the course and will thus have the opportunity to get to know one of the most valuable products of our territory up close, learning how much agriculture plays a fundamental role in respecting nature and protecting it.

At the end of the experience, a small gadget will be given to each child

Duration:

The duration of the route is approximately 2 hours.

The cost is €5,00 for each child, free for accompanying persons.
