We'll start our tour with the visit of the medieval village of Montecarlo. The town is perched on a hill and you can easily see there its glorious castle and the surrounding walls from the valley.
A pleasant walk along the village and then we'll reach our farm where you'll be intorduced in the secrets of the extra-virgin olive oil production. You will discover the territory of Montecarlo is ideal for the growth of olive trees and vines, because of an exceptional variety of soils and microclimates. It's a tradition that dates back in time.
The guide will explaine you how the olives are harvested and pressed and you'll be ready for tasting. Here you'll have the opportunity to appreciate the typical 'bruschetta' with fresh pressed extra-virgin olive oil. The owner of the farm is also one of the biggest producers of Montecarlo wine and you'll have the possibility to combine the bruschetta with its great Montecarlo red and white DOC wines.
With the wine experience, a delicious light lunch* will be served in the nearby renowned restaurant. A mouth-watering Tuscan 'antipasto', a first course - pasta and, to definitely wish 'Happy days', dessert and drinks!
