Discovering the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: the Tuscany’s green gold

Too many are the stereotypes distorting the image, value and correct understanding of this extraordinary tree crop.

“A bitter oil is a bad oil”: this is definitely one of the most repeated and misleading clichés we often hear. Many are the myths that surround olive oil, and how much a good extra virgin olive oil should cost is one of them.

This guided tour is tailored for those who want to understand what the extra virgin olive oil made in Tuscany really is. Thus we have decided to take a walk with you among our olive trees: for you to understand, directly on the field, everything olive trees and their precious fruits really need.

Since in Tuscany, olive oil and landscape are inseparable, we’ll talk about oil but also about the splendid and harmonious landscape surrounding our olive trees and vineyard, trying to answer to the so many people asking us – and wondering – what makes our land so incredibly beautiful and balanced.

We will end our tour with a guided tasting of our delicious extra virgin olive oil, in the company of the Merlini family, of course!
