A one-week tour of the Tuscan olive harvest takes you to Franco Lombardi's farm in the heart of the Chianti region. Learn everything you need to know about the cultivation of olives and the production of olive oil, from antiquity to today. Enjoy 180 beautiful color photos while you read about the health benefits of consuming and the pitfalls of buying Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the Nectar of the Gods.
Beginning with a 2-year stint in the Peace Corps, my wife Debra and I have travelled much of the world, and during the past 25 years, have visited our two favorite European countries (Italy and France) more than 30 times, gathering a wealth of travel secrets and connections. Recently, we have become passionate about Tuscan olive oil, particularly Pornanino olive oil, and have been adopted into the Franco Lombardi family in Chianti, where we have helped with their olive harvest since 2004. Partnering with many of our Italian friends, we offer very small, personalized tours to Tuscany for those who want a unique travel experience.
