The richness of our territory and perfect weather for specific type of foods, allows Mount Amiata to boasts delicious products and gastronomic excellences. Tasty and genuine plates and exquisite foods make our mountain and the surroundings the perfect place for whoever loves quality food.
Since every product, from oil, to wine, to mushrooms has its special origins and unique characteristics, in order to better understand provenance and qualities, we warmly recommend a visit to wineries and local farms. We arrange visits to Aziende Agricole (farms producing local products) located in our territory. It is possible to get know producers, production phases and understand how the product is prepared. Discovering production processes of big and small farmhouses. From wineries, to diaries to craftsman’s workshops, in order to get to know our land through its typical products.
Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano, Montecucco, Pecorino di Pienza, Olio da Olivastra Seggianese, Castagna dell’Amiata IGP, Cinta Senese pork, handmade spirits from officinal herbs and lots of other kind of products from the mountain to the valleys of Orcia and Maremma.
Look at abilities and wisdom acquired by producers from ancestors, and a know-how that has been handed down from generation to generation.
