Wine Experiences

Inspired by our Food&Wine philosophy at Relais Villa Olmo we offer a variety of activities and experiences each carefully crafted to enable our guests to enjoy the pleasures of authentic Tuscan lifestyle and discover the Chianti hillside and Florence.

On-site activities comprise local product tastings and sommelier-led wine tastings in the ancient Wine Cellar  and the quintessentially Tuscan experience of a visit to our period Olive Oil Mill, to see the plump olives become our delicious golden Extra Virgin Diadema Olive Oil (Olive Oil Mill visits from October to December only).
