An olive harvest is one of the most fascinating experiences you can enjoy in Tuscany. It is a wonderful way to learn a lot not only about the local wine & food traditions but also about the local culture. Join us on this incredible journey!
This October and November,let's celebrate Tuscany’s yearly olive harvesting tradition with a new insider experience that includes a private harvesting in one of the top olive groves, bespoke bottle of olive oil with personalized label, soothing massage with one’s personally selected olive oil and more.
Joining a team of expert olive farmers, travelers will help harvest the olives while learning about the olive oil extraction and production process. At the end of the harvest, guests receive a bespoke bottle of freshly created olive oil uniquely labeled to take home or to enjoy during a traditional countryside lunch set in the middle of the olive fields. To wind down after a long day on the grove, guests will enjoy an olive oil-infused massage.
Also included in the Olives Harvesting Experience is a tour of one of the oldest wine cellars in Italy where the first Chianti was produced and a Tuscan degustation dinner overlooking the medieval village of Borro.
Accommodations during the experience are in a deluxe suite at Il Borro, the luxury resort owned by Salvatore Ferragamo. Also available are private tours to Florence, Siena and Arezzo. VIP Airport Assistance, private transfers by luxury car, and 24/7 personal assistance by phone is included with all our tours
November in Tuscany can mean a lot of things, like a great variability both in weather conditions and in temperatures, chestnut festivals...but most of all this month means to all Tuscan people and tourists that the olive harvest season has come back. Olive picking is one of the most traditional appointments of November throughout Tuscany: in Mugello area, in the Maremma and in the Chiantiarea, too.
A true social occasion
The olive harvest in Tuscany is an important social opportunity where families get together to pick the olives and press them for the first extra virgin olive oil. This is a very authentic experience that thanks to our friends and the attention to details will create everlasting memories for you and all your family.
