At the hotel.
In the late morning, we will board the motorcoach for a short ride to Fabbrica di San Martino, a farm producing “biodynamic” wine and oil. The owner will give us a presentation on what “biodynamic” farming means and how it works, through a holistic view of nature as an interconnected whole where every element plays its specific role. Next, we will walk to nearby Villa Sardi in Fabbrica di San Martino. This historical noble residence datds from the 17th century, and is now a winery. We will learn more about the production of wine, cheese, and olive oil including tastings.
On your own to have what you like at Villa Sardi.
Next, we’ll ride to the International Academy of Italian Cuisine for our hands-on cooking class.
At the cooking school, we’ll enjoy the meal we helped prepare.
Returning to the hotel, the remainder of the evening is free.
