What to expect

The olive mill in Tuscany is a place of production, but also of flavours and knowledge, of curiosity and encounters, of ancient traditions and technological progress. The multimedia Tuscany olive oil mill tour was created to bring all this wealth to life!

You will have the opportunity to walk through the places of production, meet the millers and admire the machinery. The experience will be enriched by the presence of interactive panels, virtual reality stations, multi-touch tables and lecterns, in an engaging playful and didactic journey into the world of the olive tree and Tuscan olive oil.

The visit to the olive oil mill will be made even more special by the olive oil tasting experience to discover the flavours of Tuscan tradition. We will have a tasting of the Tuscan olive oil produced at the olive oil mill and paired with the typical unsalted bread, accompanied by a technical explanation of the different properties of Tuscan olive oil.

The food experience will be further enriched by the tasting of pecorino cheese refined under olive leaves and, for the older ones, the new liqueur made from an infusion of olive leaves from the olive mill.
