Autumn in Tuscany. The Country Life: the Olive and Grape Harvest
Experience Tuscan farm life by participating in grape or olive harvesting in the bucolic hills of the Chianti region just outside Florence!
A minivan will take you from Florence to a traditional farm in Greve in Chianti where, after an explanation of the day’s task, you will help with the gathering of either olives for oil or grapes for wine production. You’ll also receive an explanation of how the fruits of your labor are transformed from their natural state to the finished product.
Your farm experience will culminate in a wine tasting and light lunch, during which you'll have the opportunity to sample the farm’s own olive oil and wine. You'll enjoy the taste all the more after having worked the raw ingredients with your own hands! All products are available for purchase.
Your day tour will give you the satisfaction of having done a good day’s work in beautiful surroundings as well as the knowledge that, someday, someone will taste the fruits of your labor!
Comfortable clothing and shoes shuitable for the country required.
