Overview
More
This unique talk on bio and chemical free gourmet extra virgin olive oil, given by Matteo, expert as well as one of Chianti's premier olive growers, is a chance to learn how the best oil is made and why it requires careful handling at each step of its production. The talk is given at the Lombardi Estate tasting room, surrounded by his 4,000 olive trees. This is also where the stone frantoio (olive press of which this is one of only 14 presses in Tuscany) is located, so you will be able to see the stone grinding wheels and press that delivers the oil from the olives. Seminars and tours are UPON REQUEST.

The extra virgin olive oil produced by Pornanino is terrific. We have it shipped to Canada right after the fall harvest. Then we try our best to hoard it until at least the new year. The olive grove is a beautiful place and the expertise...More
