An immersive à la carte experience to live the "Dolce Vita"

It is a full day of instructive, rich and tasty activities. You’ll get a great taste of what a stay at Fattoria Lavacchio is all about!

The day begins with a guided tour of the vineyards and cellars of the estate to learn about our organic production and how we care for our vineyards and environment.

We will show you the specific needs and requirements of our wine production, focusing on the characteristics of each grape variety.

You will visit the windmill and be introduced to the production of extra virgin olive oil.

The tour will be followed by a gourmet lunch accompanied by four of our organic wines.

After lunch (May to September), you will have the opportunity to take a dip in the swimming pool and relax under the olive trees of the estate.

Then you will visit the ceramics workshop to discover the authentic and original pottery of Tuscan artisans.

Afterwards, you can choose between a ceramics course and create your own bowls, plates and vases or take a two-hour horseback ride through the Tuscan hills (minimum age 10 years).
