Olive oil.
In Autumn you can try your hand picking some of the olives from our olive grove and then see how they are processed. We also visit a centuries old private olive press where the olives were once crushed under gigantic stone wheels. We have an aperitivo together with hot bruschetta dripping with freshly pressed oil.
Truffle hunting.
You can spend a morning with a truffle hunter in nearby S.Giovanni D'Asso, famous for the rare white truffles, and we can picnic together tasting the new truffles.
Wine.
We can have a day trip to Montalcino to taste some wines. We can also visit the cellars of several of the top Brunello producers. From there we can visit the romanesque Abbey of S.Antimo where Gregorian chants are still sung.
We can visit the heart of Chianti, Brolio Castle, where the Ricasoli family, who still own the castle, revolutionised the production of Chianti making it one of the world's premier wines. We visit the cellars and the family's private collection and sit down for wine tasting with an on-site sommelier. Then we visit the Abbey of Coltibuono.

Thermal baths.
A relaxing day spent at S.Giovanni (15min) bathing in the hot pools, massages, beauty treatments, etc. Or bathing under the stars on Saturday nights.
Yoga. (Min 6 people) We can have yoga under the olives together with our teacher in the morning, or while contemplating the beautiful sunset.
Massage. You can have relaxing massages here at Finerri.
