THE BEST TUSCAN ARTISANAL PRODUCTS
Artisanal products are becoming increasingly popular. Here’s a unique tour focused on artisanal and organic products, as a testament to the strong commitment of private families involved.
The visit to the organic estate
Our tour begins with the visit to an organic estate that exclusively produces flours from ancient grains within an integrated system. Nestled in the countryside between Peccioli and Volterra, the farm offers a breathtaking view. Explore their production of ancient grain flours, legumes, pasta, bread, and biscuits, gaining insights into adopting a healthier diet. Let’s also acknowledge the admirable mission of the two brothers who have invested significant efforts in creating an environmentally friendly space that is entirely free of chemicals.
The town of Peccioli and lunch at a pastry shop
Next, venture to Peccioli, one of the most charming towns in the region, where you’ll meet a delightful family passionate about creating excellent food.
They are the proud owners of a restaurant that, in the previous generation, started as a local pastry shop. The dedication and curiosity of the last two generations have transformed the business into one of the most esteemed pastry shops in the area. Over time, it has evolved also into a restaurant where the chef continually delights guests with new creations and culinary experiments, all while maintaining a strong connection to tradition. They utilize ancient grain flours, produced at the farm we visited, for crafting pizzas, bread, and other specialties that you’ll have the pleasure of tasting in a delectable lunch.
Gelato tasting experience
Additionally, a young family member has recently initiated a project to create a unique gelato. Crafted in an artisanal manner and using local and organic raw materials, they experiment with taste combinations to create unconventional gelato flavors exclusive to this location. A gelato tasting following lunch is a must-try experience.
Delight your taste buds with the result of their creative experimentation, featuring unusual gelato flavors that you can only savor here.
