Wat je gaat doen

My hills are full of olive trees. What's their history? And how does olive oil is produced?
As we will walk together through the olive grove up and down the hill I will introduce the history of olive farming in the Mediterranean area, its tradition and value; I will talk more in details about the history of olive tree, its agricultural, literary, artistic and gastronomic value in Tuscany from the Renaissance to nowadays.
I will explain and show practically how we take care of the trees and how we harvest olives. From March to April we will be pruning trees, while in November we harvest olives, you can help us!
I will also tell you about how extra virgin olive oil is produced and why it is different from all the other olive oils;
Finally we will sit and relax to taste our extra virgin olive oil, together with some fresh bread, vegetables, cheese, a glass of wine and an amazing view on the Chianti countryside
In the end, if you wish, you will have the possibility to buy our olive oil.

I take care of olive trees in the Tuscan countryside.
Previously I have studied history at University of Bologna and then I decided to leave academia to work in the countryside. I have been working as a farmer for the last four years, together with my partner.
We produce organic extra-virgin olive oil thanks to 1300 olive trees. My passion for history and for olive trees will be at the center of this experience.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will visit the olive grove walking up and down the hills of Testalepre, in the heart of Chianti region. We will visit our traditional farm, built all in local stones in 1940s, with an amazing large terrace "aia" where we will taste olive oil, have a chat and admire the landscape.

Martina was a super good host. We arrived too early but we were welcomed with open arms. Really nice experience! We didn’t only learn a lot about (extra virgin) olive oil and its process but we also left with a lot of knowledge about Tuscany and its history. Also, her dog is an amazing co-host!!

What a wonderful experience! Martina was very informative and hospitable. The tour took us through the olive groves and she explained all aspects of the process. Afterwards we were able to taste their product with wine and cheese. Definitely an experience to sign up for if you are in the area!

I really enjoyed time with Martina. This was a great experience. Martina provided lots of useful information about olive growing and oil production. You could feel her enthusiasm and passion for reviving small scale olive growing in Tuscany. The walk through tranquil slopes of olive grove finished on patio overlooking Chianti hills. With a glass of local wine and young pecorino cheese Martina introduced me to "pinzimonio". Highly recommended.

Bellissima passeggiata tra gli olivi accompagnati dal Labrador e dal gatto Ruggine della famiglia ! Abbiamo apprezzato moltissimo le spiegazioni di Martina, che abbina a meraviglia storia, arte e natura. Interessantissimi anche i dettagli sulla coltivazione dell’olivo, dalla potatura alla raccolta. L’esperienza si è conclusa in bellezza con la degustazione del suo squisito olio. Esperienza consigliatissima, perfetta per conoscere la Toscana. La consiglio vivamente anche a famiglie con bambini.

This was a great experience. It was a privilege to walk through Martina's family's olive groves and learn about the history of olive oil production, learn how Martina and Andrea harvest and produces their own local olive oil, and sit and enjoy some of the oil with some local Chianti and fresh pecorino. Added bonus was their dog Nunzio accompanying us through the grove. We will not forget this experience.
