Do you want to try the real specialties?
Our food is sooo tasty, delicious and offers a wide range of possibilities for even the most discriminating palate. We'll explore a cured meats spot: "salsiccia", "salami", "prosciutto" and then try a bit of the unknown "buristo" and "sorpressata". Learn from your personal guide how to distinguish the particoular breed Cinta Senese and the huge wild boar. You will throughly enjoy the wonderful combinations of food and wine;
Extra virgin olive oil: simply ... a MUST! Try and taste the true E.V.O.O., so deep in taste and scent!. Visit an oil mill and learn about the oil making process as well as its secrets. The olive picking is usually in November and December and during this period you'll get the chance to see the oil production.. live: smell the intense fragrance of freshly squeezed E.V.O.O. !
And now combine all this with the Pecorino cheese: a local sheep's milk cheese produced in Pienza and aged in so many different ways. You'll visit a dairy, a real dairy in Pienza, run by a single family and the lab where cheese is made. Meet the owner and learn the secrets of this delicacy. Taste the many varieties, with a hint of jam or chestnut honey and make your final choice!!
And now... what about something less known but still very good as craft beer? or a real fantastic gelato class? our day could even finish (or start) with a local small coffee roaster, the best aroma and the toasting process of coffee beans right before your eyes!
