A “vendemmia” (Italian for grape harvest) is one of the most fascinating experiences you can participate while here in Tuscany. Enjoy this special time of the year with our family when we bring in the fruits of our labor from the entire year.
Our grape harvest experience is a wonderful way to learn not only about the local wine & food traditions but also about the local culture. We will start in the vineyard where we will begin harvesting and follow the process to the cellar where you will witness step by step how we begin to make the grapes into our delicious wines. We will explain our techniques for making our organic wine and you will taste the difference between the grape juice and the final wine product.Request grape harvest experience in Tuscany
November in Tuscany is the period of the Olive Harvest. Famiglia Buccelletti offers a unique experience by reconnecting you with nature and teaching you all about one of the most famous products of Italy; Olive Oil.
We will start in the groves and have harvest time within the Tuscan hills and you will learn the techniques used for producing our liquid gold.
Traditionally, the olive growers of Tuscany will reward family and friends who help out with the harvest with an “al fresco” picnic lunch right there in the olive grove: a bottle of good wine, some Tuscan bread and cheese, perhaps a mixed grill of meats or Tuscan white beans with rosemary. Famiglia Buccelletti now offers the olive harvest experience for guests to spend time with us picking olives, eating authentic Tuscan cuisine, enjoying the landscape, and learn all about how the olives are processed into fine oil.Request olive harvest experience in Tuscany
