An original and pleasant half-day tour designed for people who want to learn more about our delicious specialties while visiting a small but renowned beer factory located in the middle of a charming estate and a small spirit factory making the best grappa and liquors from Tuscany.
A microbrewery in a large farming estate
Our tour takes you to visit a small and artisanal beer factory located in the very heart of an estate, whose origins trace back to the Middle Ages. Today the property is a an extended farm where organic and genuine products are made. In the 500 hectares of fields around the farm, the owners produce typical Tuscan wines and many varieties of grains, including barley, from which local beer is brewed. The farm is 100% certified organic. Together with our experti foodie guide you will enjoy a walk in the property and you will visit the micro-brewery to see the tanks where beers are made. The most enjoyable way for you to understand all secrets for the production of the best beers from Tuscany.
Beer tasting and Tuscan lunch
After the visit to the estate and the focus on the little beer factory, we will move to the restaurant of the property. Here a typical Tuscan light lunch will be served together with a tasting of 4 different beers from the brewery. Lunch is composed by a selection of salami, pecorino cheeses and crostini, a tasting of 2 primi main courses and a dessert. All recipes are based on genuine and fresh products from the farm.
The visit to the liquor factory
After lunch we will move to a nearby small liquor factory. Here we will meet the owner Silvia who will explain to us the philosophy of her company. We will visit the workshop and learn how their best liquors and grappas are made. After the visit we will sit at the table and we will taste a selection of their products: 2 aperitifs (spritz, americano, or gin tonic and negroni), 2 sweet liquors (limoncello, arancello, licorice, bluebarry) and 2 spirits (different types of grappa from your choice). The tasting will be accompained by some black chocolate and little snacks.

Here is the message of Joe and Sue, who visited Tuscany with our driver Enzo and our guide Luca and had many stops at our local producers, including the grappa factory:
Hello Arianna and Friends:
Just a quick note to tell you about the great time we had with some of your staff. Sorry I don’t remember your driver’s name, but he was a great part of the tours especially for his willingness to jump in and help.
Of course Lucca is a great guide. His passion for the area, the people, and his job is infectious. His knowledge of the area’s foods and customs, not to mention wines is impressive and much appreciated by Sue and I.
Congratulations for the work you all do.
Joe and Sue
