    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Fattoria Lavacchio, Via di Grignano 37/38, 50065, Pontassieve Italy

    This activity gives you the opportunity to visit the unique working windmill of Italy, experience flour making and the unique sensation to come back to 2 centuries ago. Visit the Farm’s traditional olive mill and discover all the secrets of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil.

    The tour lasts around one hour and includes a walk in the olive groves, a little introduction to the Tuscan olive oil traditions and a guided tour of the mill as well as an historical background of the windmill, its renovation and technical explanations of how it works. If wind allows it, you will also see it turn and press our organic wheat to make flour. To finish off, there is a course on olive oil tasting where you will learn the characteristics of good extra virgin olive oil.
