My friend and I did the olive picking experience. We were taught about growing olives and shown how they are picked, then we helped pick the olive from a tree they picked out for us. Appreciate the work and skill that goes into growing, harvesting and processing olives into extra virgin olive oil that is the purest and most delicious olive oil you will ever taste. Fabio, one of the family that owns the farm, and Luca our guide, made the experience the best time we had in Italy. We had a lovely lunch on the farm on a beautiful sunny warm day. We ordered some of the oil that would be made with the olives that we helped pick. It came today and we are enjoying the experience all over again. We have already decided we want to go back again! Please don't miss this experience it is the best time you will have!!!

Cosimo Maria Masini

We offer a wine tour dedicated to natural wine-making and to the discovery of how to produce wine with full respect for the environment and its land. After a walk through the rows of grapevines farmed according to biodynamic methods we reach the courtyard - during wine harvesting here it is possible to see open pan vinification - and the vinsantiera (the place where the fine dessert wine Vinsanto is produced). We then arrive at the cellar and enter the barique cellar, where our red wines are stored to refine. Each step is accompanied by descriptions and extra focus on the topics by enologists and sommeliers of the Cosimo Maria Masini, who will be pleased to answer and satisfy any curiosity. The visit then continues to the garden of the villa which has famously seen among its residents the families of the Buonaparte and the Ridolfi, in particular Cosimo Ridolfi the founder of modern agronomy and of the Accademia dei Georgofili. The tour, which lasts for about 1hour and a half, concludes at the NOW Shop with wine tasting (our own wines) combined with the chance to savour some local products. Wine tours should be booked in advance.

What a wonderful experience. My wife booked it for our wedding anniversary and we were joined by my son 28 and daughter 22. Beautiful location just outside san miniato in a fabulous villa where we were introduced to the real star ‘Ciocco’ the dog. A couple of hours spent in the woods and we found two decent sized winter white truffles and a huge edible boletus mushroom. We returned to the villa where the truffles and mushroom were turned into a delicious lunch by Francesa’s mother served with beautiful olive oil from the estate and two of their own wines both excellent. Honestly though the day may seem expensive at first the experience and the wonderful hospitality were well worth the price. We left full of pasta, meat and truffles with some of that lovely oil and wine and gift of honey again from the estate. Wonderful experience thank you to Francesca, your delightful mother and of course Ciocco who we all wanted to bring back to England.

Rocca Federico II

Reviewed By dnmac1955 - Dunblane, United Kingdom

Looking for somewhere off the beaten track and found San Miniato. Caught the train from Pisa and then a taxi up from San Miniato train station (€12) to the old town. Walked to the top of the hill and scaled the tower (€3.5/p) and rewarded with superb views. Well worth a visit but note that the buses don’t seem to run on Sundays, hence the taxi.

I got amazed by this church beauty. If anything is a must to see in San Miniato it is this church. I have been to many churches but this one is number one.

Centro Storico di San Miniato

Reviewed By 857ralphh - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

A most attractive hill top town on the main railway line between Pisa and Florence. There is a free bus every few minutes from the railway station to San Miniato Alto, but there also appeared to be ample, easy parking. A small easily walkable town, it is off the beaten track as far as tourists are concerned, and prices are correspondingly lower. But it is well worth a day or even just part of a day, since there is plenty to see and the place has a long history. There is an Information office on the main square but local students have done a stunning job producing an App, from which you can scan details of the main attractions, such as the Rocca di Frederico II, the Palazzo del Seminario in the P.za della Republic and many more. Last year I visited and reviewed San Gimignano, which I found overcrowded and expensive. Of similar size, this is a far better alternative if you are in the area.
