We are spending one week in Tuscany from 27th october until 3rd november, with accomodations split around san gimignano area and within montepulciano town. We would love to visit a farm with olive groves where they are harvesting olives for oil production. I believe our timing fits this well. I have read that most farms do not have their own oil press and go to a nearby press in the local area for pressing. We want to experience this whole procedure - from harvest to pressing to tasting. We are not keen on going to an enoteca or a restaurant for just a tasting. We would love to buy some quantities of the oil directly from source.
We are not much into wine but I bring up vineyard tours of similar nature in my hope to convey that I am quite passionate about olives, olive oil, learning about the whole procedure and talk to families who have been doing this for generations. It would be a good glimpse in tuscan life. Please share contacts / name of the farms based on your personal experience and knowledge. Thanks.
