Hi! I'm Caterina, I lived in the Chianti region all my life long and I'm totally in love with that! The beauty of the landscape and the goodness of the nature's product made this countryside a paradise on Earth :) I've always been passionate for tuscan genuine food and for its protagonists: extra-virgin olive oil and wine! From several years I'm producing organic olive oil and hosting guests from all over the world in our magnificent villa!

This experience with Caterina was so wonderful! She is a true expert when it comes to all things olives and made us feel so welcomed in her home. She took us on a tour of the olive trees, let us wander around the gardens and served us delicious bread with her own olive oil and wine. She then took us to a winery for a truly unique experience and tasting. I would highly recommend this experience if you're looking for a fun, friendly, educational experience!

A beautiful family villa just outside of Florence. It was really nice to learn about olive oil from a small farm perspective I enjoyed that much more than the wine tour section. The best part was Cat and her welcoming personalty and that she shared a small part of her life with us for the afternoon.

Really wonderful experience with Caterina! She was very warm and welcoming. As a local of the area, it felt like a very special experience. And her home + oil farm are simply stunning! Very charming, would highly recommend.

What a wonderful experience! After picking us up at the bus station, Caterina welcomed our small group of 3 people into her family's 600 year old villa. She took us on a tour of the villa's small olive grove, then made us a tasting of the oil they produce in very small batches. Best olive oil we have ever had, such a special treat! During the tour, she explained how special real Italian olive oil is as well as the process that goes into producing the oil. After our olive oil tasting, she took us to explore a local vineyard with an excellent wine tasting! Highly recommend this experience!
