The restaurant is one of the most important focal points situated along our estate. It is located in an ancient renovated country farmhouse. It is the perfect place to re-discover the fragrances and flavours of the Tuscan cuisine of long ago…… a time when once, quenched by a good glass of wine and a delicious steaming plate of food not only meant the simple act of eating and drinking, but an occasion to enjoy the pleasures of nature and sample what she, with great sacrifice, had handed down to us. Uno dei punti di riferimento della fattoria è l'Osteria del Vecchio Olivo, nata da un vecchio casolare di campagna. È il giusto luogo dove riscoprire i profumi e gli antichi sapori della cucina toscana di un tempo… Un tempo quando il ristoro di un buon bicchiere di vino e di un buon piatto fumante significava non soltanto mangiare, ma poter godere dei piaceri della natura e dei cibi che la terra con tanto sacrificio ci aveva donato. Tutto questo… un’emozione, un sogno, un profumo che l'Osteria del Vecchio Olivo saprà regalarvi.
