What you'll do

Together we will spend some hours at Tananei farmhouse, our paradise on hills surrounded by olive trees. in the most genuine Tuscany.

We will make a "walk" through the EVO Oil world, exploring the entire process from cultivation to olives harvest, transformation at oil mill and finally conservation.

Then we will have a real walk among our olive trees to start recognizing the different kind of olives. You will have the chance to admire a beautiful landscape, where you can see all the beautiful nature Tananei farmhouse is surrounded by.

After that we will introduce you in the charming world of professional oil tasting, as done by the official testers (oil sommeliers).

At the end you will enjoy an unforgettable DINNER (together with red wine of the area) where Tuscan specialties will be flavored with different kind of EVO Oils , so that you can start learning how to combine EVO oils with food. The dinner will be served alfresco, among the olive trees or in front of our crackling fireplace depending on season.

Although the course is managed by professional of the EVO Oil sector, it will be a funny experience in an informal setting. At the same time it will be a UNIQUE experience because we are among the few to be EVO Oil producers + official EVO tasters + restaurateurs!

I'm the owner of Tananei farmhouse, I was born in this area and after a managerial career with international responsabilities in multinational companies I have decided to come back to my beloved Tuscany and share my love for the country life, its flavors and its traditions with Tananei guests.

So I became a certified taster of Extra Virgin Olive Oil at a national level and expert of oil mills and pruning of olive trees techniques, to produce High Quality EVO Oil.
I love to share my enthusiasm and experience with people who are curious to know how to make, recognize and use a premium quality Extra Vergin Olive Oil.

Do not hesitate, just book this experience. The experience was really really amazing. We have learnt so much about extra virgin olive oil. The experience is supported by some really nice self made infographics and a video which support the learning experience and makes sure that you will take the information with you at home. At home you will be able to apply to knowledge you have gained. The experience did not feel touristy and David and Georgia make you feel really comfortable and welcome. We had never done an experience like this, but we would definitely do it again. Additionally to the experience we have also booked a night at the airbnb of David and Georgia, which was really nice. It felt a bit like a dream to go for an evening walk (with fire flies during our stay) after the amazing dinner and then go straight to your bed in their authenic house. We would really recommend to also spend the night at their Airbnb.

Getting to this place is interesting , very remote and steep & we wondered if we were in the right place. But as soon as we arrived we knew we were going to have a fantastic experience. The whole experience was interactive, educational, relaxed and fun. We met 6 others (from Europe) which was great, like a small dinner party. We got a brief history of the beautiful farmhouse and the restoration, then a brisk walk through the olive groves where we learned just how hard the work is to grow & harvest the olives. Then the heart of it all was to learn about how olive oil is graded & processed, then on to a tasting with David who made it fun and educational all at once. The dinner was delicious and traditional. We even got recommendations as to where to go the next day. If you’re looking for a unique, intimate experience, do it , you will not regret it!

Die EVO Oil Experience ist sehr empfehlenswert, da das Ganze in kleinem Rahmen stattfindet und sehr persönlich ist. Wer schon immer wissen wollte, welches der Olivenöle man im Laden kaufen sollte, ist hier genau richtig. David und Georgia waren sehr gastfreundlich und herzlich.

An amazing experience. David and his wife delivered an exceptional evening learning about olive oil, tasting olive oil, and a delicious meal highlighting different uses of olive oil. Their olive farm (grove?) is set on a beautiful hillside. Their home is a beautiful Tuscan villa. David's passion for olives and olive oil clearly show throughout the evening. We felt like we were transported away to a small Tuscan olive farm, became a part of the family for an evening, and were immersed in all things olive oil!

David is an Olive oil sommelier (as well as a wine sommelier) and his passion for both really shines through. He taught us how to properly taste and experience olive oil. We also got to learn about olive trees and production and then finished the evening with delicious food and wine in a truly beautiful location.
