Educational Tour: wine and olive oil
An introductory lesson to the tasting, along with a visit to an agency producing wine and olive oil.
An introductory lesson for those who love, or are just curious about two local excellences: the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG and the Tuscan extra virgin olive oil (Terre di Siena DOP and Toscano PGI). An expert will guide you step by step in the knowledge of the basic principles of tasting. You will learn to understand and recognize the quality of these two excellent products, starting from the respective sensory properties, such as color, aroma and flavor. At the end of this mini course, you will be able to serve from the bottle to perfection, as well as to understand the main characteristics of a wine, to distinguish a high-quality olive oil from a poor-quality one, and to serve successful combinations at your table. You will immediately test what you have just learned by visiting an agency producing Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG and extra virgin olive oil. The taste of a simple bruschetta topped with local extra virgin olive oil, paired with a glass of wine, will acquire a whole new value after you have understood their secrets of production and tasting.
