Meet your tour leader in San Quirico d´Orcia.
Admire the façade of the Collegiate Church of San Quirico and Giulitta, a beautiful Romanesque church with Gothic and Baroque elements, with three beautiful entrances all different from each other. Take a step into the Church of San Francesco, also known as the Church of Our Lady. Let your eyes enjoy the beauty of Horti Leonini, a small but unique example of Italian gardens, designed in 1540 by Diomede Leoni. At the centre of the gardens there is a beautiful statue of Cosimo III de´ Medici.
Inside this elegant village there is a small brewery workshop.
This is an excellence: craft beers produced with high quality raw materials as organic grains from Val d´Orcia and selected hops. In few years this laboratory gained a prominent place not only in Italy but also abroad.
Visit of the laboratory with beer tasting.
Afterwards, enjoy a visit to a local farm that produces both wine and extra virgin olive oil.
Some areas of Tuscany -such as Montepulciano- have grown in importance and fame than others over the years.
Today the wine production of the Val d´Orcia (UNESCO SITE) is particularly worthy.
Visit of the farm with extra virgin olive oil and DOC wine tasting.
In case of nice weather the tasting will be done under a nice vine that cover from the heat of the sun and offer a remarkable view of the Val d´Orcia landscape; otherwise the tasting will be done in a small tasting room where you can fill the commitment of the owners.
The farm raises horses used for the Palio of Siena that you can admire in the courtyard.
