Wine and Olive oil: Agriturismo near Firenze in Toscana, Pontassieve
Wine and Olive oil
For wine lovers. Whilst we produce high quality Oil we do not produce wines as we prefer to concentrate on the quality of our oil, however we are situated in an area famous for its wine production known as Chianti Rufina. At the base of the hill, just 5km away is the town of Rufina where the local wine consortium has opened a Museum of wine dedicated to the history and production of wines in the Chianti Rufina area.
We can organise visits to the museum or directly to the vineyards where you can see the production facilities, learn a little of the history of the Chianti Rufina area and try a glass or two. If you have a chance not to be missed is the wonderful autumn colours at the end of September and throughout October.
the olive oil. Here you will be able to enjoy the thousands of Olive trees and other vegetation on this hill, an area of outstanding natural beauty. We are very lucky that this particular area has a geographic position that allows us grow olive trees of the highest quality enabling us to produce exceptionally high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is cold pressed in our own modern pressing plant or Frantoio.
The oil produced is of the highest quality with a low level of acidity and a superb taste. On our farm it is possible to purchase Oil direct and if you would like to place orders for the new Oil produced each year this is normally available form the beginning of November, and we can if required organise shipping all over the world.
