In the hills between Valdorcia and Valdichiana, in Sarteano, you can find the Tistarelli Oil Mill. Since the 1960s, this artisanal reality has been dedicated to the cultivation of family olive groves, the production exclusively in their own mill, of Extra Virgin Olive Oils under their own brand, and to those of the numerous olive growers who choose them, and who are easy to meet in the mill’s ‘rooms’.
The Tistarelli Family loves welcoming visitors to their mill “With Open Doors”, offering the opportunity to get up close to the production process of excellent extra virgin olive oil, experiencing the pressing process, tasting the freshly extracted oil, and learning to recognize its distinctive characteristics.
During the months of October and November, the pressing at the Tistarelli Oil Mill becomes an experience to live and enjoy. All year round, visiting the mill represents a journey of knowledge and sharing, while the tasting, which can take place both inside the mill and in its Enoteca (the company’s retail outlet), offers a pleasant and convivial opportunity to savor extra virgin oils on typical bruschetta, accompanied by the best Tuscan wines and authentic, simple local specialties.
