The Olive oil festival

In the tiny village of Montisi in the center of the Crete Senesi (15 km from Pienza, 20 km Montalcino and 25 km from Montepulciano) the event “IL PRIMO OLIO E ALTRO ANCORA” is held by the Associazione Nazionale Città dell’Olio.

It is a weekend of culinary culture where you can taste the oil of the newest pressing of this corner of the Crete Senesi accompanied by other typical products of this area (white truffle of the Crete Senesi and Wine Doc Orcia) among the districts and in restaurants. It will be possible to take guided tours to the mills of the town and make mini tasting courses of oil and honey wine and cheeses as well as visits to the districts of the Giostra di Simone, the Compagnia Museum, the recently renovated Piccolo Teatrino della Grancia.

There will be flea markets and antique crafts exhibitions throughout the village and itinerant entertainment shows.`
